BELMAR, NJ — Belmar’s downtown district will abound with special deals, discounts and door prizes during the Belmar Business Partnership’s second annual Sidewalk Sale tomorrow, August 24.
The daylong event will begin at 11 a.m., featuring nearly 20 participating shops, eateries and businesses. In addition to the shopping fun, attendees will have the chance to win door prizes, including a Weber gas grill valued at $800 from event co-sponsor Taylor Hardware. In addition, BBP will be giving away three $100 gift cards to each winner’s Belmar business or restaurant of choice.
“Based on last year, this year's Sidewalk Sale should be even better. We have quite a few new businesses in Belmar and hopefully, this sale will put a spotlight on them,” said Pat Tecza, co-chair of the BBP’s promotions committee and owner of Nostalgic Nonsense Vintage Clothing, 903 Main Street.
Bob Losito, owner of Pro Skateboard Shop at 1108 Main Street, said that last year's sidewalk sale was his single best day of summer 2018. He's expecting this year to be even better.
The day will be capped off with a 4 p.m. performance by the Danny White Band in Pyanoe Plaza, located at Ninth Avenue and Main Street. At that time, door prize winners will also be announced.
Raffle tickets can be picked up at participating businesses. No purchase is required. To be part of the drawings, tickets must be dropped off at Sweet Tease Tea Room and Café, 604 Main Street.
