I have noticed an increase in pop-up sales and or sidewalk sales lately in my neck of the woods.
I really like a good sidewalk sale.
if a bunch of people haul a bunch of merchandise out onto the sidewalk, they do not want to have to carry it back in. That means they will discount those items over and over again. If you go late in the day to a sidewalk sale, you are likely to see prices have been slashed since the items were put out in the morning. Of course there is a risk to that as well. if you show up late in the day, you may find that there are very few options left in the sale. Anyway, I actually prefer when they kind of give up on any more sales happening outside and carry their Wares inside. Why do I like that? need you ask? I like it because then I can shop in the air conditioning! Yes, I love a good sidewalk sale, but I also love shopping inside where the HVAC is keeping everybody at a comfy thermostat setting. I’m not that big of an outdoors person, if the truth be known. In fact, I really am an indoorsy person, and that can be attributed to the fact that I really do like my heating and cooling. I don’t like to be hot, and I don’t like to be cold, so that means I have come to depend on my HVAC system quite a lot. I feel bad about it because everyone in the Southeastern part of the country values their heating and cooling system more than any other part of their home.
