Local Businesses Organize First Andersonville-Wide Flash Sale Saturday

Andersonville Sign-1It has been a tough start to April for many businesses in the area due to cold and rainy weather. However, Andersonville businesses are ready to bring those customers to the strip with a one-day-only flash sale with over 30 shops, restaurants and services participating.

Local retailer Jim Jostes, owner of Room Service at 5438 N Clark, was disappointed that his regular foot traffic was hindered due to the adverse weather conditions. With Mother Nature not letting up anytime soon, he decided to do something about it. 

Jostes came up with the idea of doing Andersonville’s first area-wide flash sale. He said, “I was talking to other businesses in the area and found out everyone was kind of doing their own thing. That is when I wondered why we were all not collaborating together.”

So Jostes contacted his friends at Murray and White, and together they have been rallying the troops to make this event a huge success. The list started off with just a few businesses and has grown to over 30 participants.

“I could have done my own flash sale and I would have only gotten the reach I typically get,” said Jostes. “But if I can get other businesses in the neighborhood to participate, we could get this cool grass roots event going.”

The event will take place throughout the day and evening tomorrow Saturday, April 9, all along the Andersonville strip.
