Busy Leamington Sidewalk Sale
July 26, 2014 6:10am
The annual Leamington Sidewalk Sale has roads in the uptown area closed today.
The event hosted by the uptown BIA features sales at different stores, entertainment, and a kids area.
BIA Chair Sean Bodel expects it to be a busy weekend. “Last year sales were up 20% – 30%. It’s very dependent on weather but other than that it has been going well. The addition of Mosaic should help as well.” Mosaic is a cultural festival put on by the South Essex Community Council, featuring 14 ethnic restaurants. Local multi-cultural clubs are also part of the event.
Road closures include Talbot St. from Victoria Ave. west to Albert St. and Erie St. from John St. south to Russel St.
