Cowboy hats, energy drinks, hardware ... you can find just about anything downtown today at the sidewalk sale. Lindsey Slater takes us along for the walk.

That would involve too much common sense....
Whooohooo! Allison Olassa & Co is the best thing at the sidewalk sale!
ya it might draw more people in to the sales, but as someone who was on Mass at 5:40am...they surely don't seem to be suffering. I took one look at Urban Outfitters and could only say yikes! I also guess that it is easier to get all the employees on Mass in for say an early Thursday sale, as opposed to, an early Saturday sale.
how about making the sidewalk sale on a weekend so that so people that work could shop, also we would get alot of people from out of town.
markhunziker, are you new in town? The sidewalk sale has been a huge success for decades, and it draws people from all over. It's obvious you have no idea how retail works. Saturdays are already busy downtown, so what's the incentive to mark things down for people who are shopping anyway? I've planned vacations around the sidewalk sale, and if you can't see fit to take a few hours off or even the whole day, well boo hoo. Everyone knows when the Lawrence sidewalk sale is. Third Thursday in July. Mark your calendars for next year if you want to go.
