“We hope the yard sale will boost the city’s retail economy, give tourists a reason to visit the area, encourage resident comradery, as well as decrease yard sale advertising clutter on the weekends,” Cary Supple, PPIS president and Chamber board member, said.
In addition, the Point Pleasant in Bloom Organization feels yard sales promote the green initiative of ‘reducing, reusing, and recycling.’
The two groups are encouraging individuals, businesses, and organizations to participate in the event by hosting a yard sale and/or shopping at one.
“Many of our bordering towns have been successful making this an annual community event. We are optimistic that Point Pleasant residents will do the same,” Supple said.
To commence the occasion, Mayor Billings and the Point Pleasant City Council have declared April 24 as ‘Citywide Yard Sale Day’ and have waived all yard sale fees and permits for that day.
