The Forest County Chamber of Commerce Retail Council has set a date of Saturday, June 13 for the Forest County-Wide Rummage Sale. The goal is to bring people from outside the area, as well as local residents, to spend the entire day in Forest County. This means a larger number of shoppers to the area, to your sale, and more opportunity for area businesses to benefit.
There is no cost to participate; just email or call in your name and address to the Chamber office (firstname.lastname@example.org or 715-478-3450). The Chamber will compile the list of participants into a flyer that will be distributed through chamber member businesses. Your listing will be placed under your town’s heading so shoppers can find you and the flyer will be available for distribution on June 8.
The Forest County-Wide Rummage Sale will also be placed on social media to spread the word and banners will be placed throughout the county to advertise the date. The Chamber also encourages utilizing any of the fine newspaper that service Forest County by placing an ad, especially if group advertising is available.
This event will be a great kick-off to the rummage sale season including the community rummage events planned in Forest County. If your community has set a date for a sale event this would be a great opportunity to get the word out so folks can come back and shop. The deadline for getting your sale on the list is June 5, so get your rummage sale plans going and contact the Chamber office today!
