IMLAY CITY — Garage sale season is right around the corner.
And very soon, possibly right on your very own block.
"Garage Sale Mania" strikes again in Imlay City on May 9-11, when dozens of residents, businesses, organizations and churches open their doors to host garage sales.
The popular springtime event is again being sponsored by the Imlay City Rotary Club.
Rotarian/Event Coordinator Walt Bargen says bargain hunters can expect to find some great prices on all manner of items, including men's, women's and children's clothing; toys, tools, household items, furniture, art, antiques, collectibles and more.
Register at Lakestone
Bargen urges anyone interested in hosting a garage sale at their home or business to sign up ASAP at Imlay City's Lakestone Bank & Trust Branch, adjacent to the Kroger Plaza.
The registration fee is $5, and early registrants will qualify to have their garage sales listed on the 2019 "Garage Sale Mania" maps to be distributed community-wide before and during the three-day event.
"We've placed an order for warm weather and no rain this year," says Bargen. "Everyone can expect to find a great assortment of items for purchase at bargain prices."
