The Sale Must Go On!
Downtown Saskatoon’s 2ND AVE Sidewalk Sale Grows To Include The Entire District
July 9 to 11, 2020

Downtown Saskatoon (Announced June 10, 2020) – For 43-years, Downtown retailers have pulled product to the street along the vibrant 2nd Avenue in celebration of summer’s arrival. Downtown Saskatoon’s 44th annual 2ND AVE Sidewalk Sale is, however, going to look a little different than years passed… Due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, the Downtown Saskatoon BID and its retailers have pivoted and are determined to make this year’s Downtown Sidewalk Sale a successful shopping opportunity.

For the Downtown Sidewalk Sale, great sales will abound from beyond the sidewalk – Businesses who can open may offer sidewalk or in-store sales, and exclusive shopping appointments. Many businesses will offer online shopping that allows you to get the deals you look forward to – day or night – regardless of physical distancing restrictions. Other regular Sidewalk Sale guests will also join us virtually, but the largest growth is that more Downtown retailers can easily participate, highlighting the variety across the entire district. There will also be free shipping and local delivery offered by many participating retailers.

Local musicians will serenade. Downtown businesses will takeover @dtnyxe social media channels throughout the event to show off their unique situation and sales. While getting together in person remains limited, we can still come together to #SupportLocal. Now is the perfect time to stock up on gifts and gift-cards when these businesses need us most. Be sure to follow us on social media @dtnyxe for regular updates leading up to and through the event. For a full list of participating retailers visit dtnyxe.ca/event/downtown-sidewalk-sale.

Downtown Saskatoon truly believes that even under physical distancing circumstances and the unknowns of these strenuous times, together we can continue to support the community, and our small business. Downtown Saskatoon welcomes you #BACKDOWNTOWN to #ShopTheStreet for this event, and any day!
