The deadline for signing up for free advertising for the Oct. 6 Greater Crothersville Community-Wide Yard Sale is 5 p.m. this Friday, Sept. 28.
The event is sponsored semi annual by the Crothersville Times.
“Fall is traditionally a well attended sale time,” said Curt Kovener, editor of the local newspaper. “And we may be on track to set a new record for number of yard sales in the area.”
Residents holding a yard sale can take advantage of free advertising by call the newspaper’s electronic secretary at 793-2188 or by e-mailing their name and sale location to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We encourage residents holding sales to notify the newspaper so that they can be added to the list of free advertisers,” said Kovener. “Certainly non-advertised sales can take advantage of the traffic generated, but if too many residents don’t notify us and only a few sales are advertised, bargain seekers will probably think there isn’t much going on in the Crothersville community and travel elsewhere.”
