Bargain hunters should put on their shopping sandals, as four Evanston districts collaborate on this season’s Super Sidewalk Sale held on July 24-26. This outdoor extravaganza embraces the unique character and distinct merchandise of four easily accessible areas – Main Street Station, Chicago/Dempster, Downtown Evanston and Central Street.
More than 200 Evanston merchants will offer bargains on summer inventory, featuring a mix of independent shops and national chain stores.
Fashionistas will discover unique designs at specialty boutiques, and can also hit the sale racks for work, play and athletic clothing and shoes. Shoppers can expect to find deals on one-of-a-kind accessories and decorative arts, including specialty designed, hand-crafted goods. Antique collectors and thrifters alike will revel in Evanston’s great selection of vintage items from classic to kitsch. Those in search of that perfect summer hostess gift can find easy shopping and unique gift in each district.
When it is time to give feet and credit cards a rest, shoppers can see what makes Evanston the unofficial restaurant capital of the North Shore: Frozen yogurt, fine baked goods, sushi, salads, burgers, pasta, ribs and more will fortify shopeers for more bargain-hunting.
Shoppers can park once and then hop the “el” or Metra to access all four districts.
