Discounts available downtown Sept. 13-16

TUESDAY, SEPT. 11 — A three-day sale aims to offer discounts at shops around downtown East Lansing.

Local retailers from Sept. 13-16 will offer sales and specials both along sidewalks and inside their stores as part of the 2018 Sidewalk Sales.

City officials said the annual event provides local residents and visitors with an opportunity to shop and dine locally at an eclectic mix of shops, art galleries and restaurants — on the cheap.

“We hope to see a great mix of community members out and about in downtown East Lansing during the Sidewalk Sales,” said city official Amy Schlusler-Schmitt. “This year’s participating businesses are offering up some great deals that shoppers won’t want to miss.”

Participating entrepreneurs will have a limited number of free parking vouchers to hand out to paying customers. Hours will vary depending on the business.
