I remember those sidewalk sales, they were great!
I'm in Calgary now so I honestly don't know if they still have them.
Back to School shopping sale is what I called it!
Wow, talk about bringing back memories................

Of course, the sidewalk sales are still alive (Now more than ever !)
I went there last year and buy a CD-ROM on Verdun at Librairie Sons et Lettres in front of NDSD Church on Wellington.

Oh yes those sidewalk sales.......you don't see things like that anymore. Literally closing the street down to have sales! I think each and everyone of us from Verdun experienced those sales......just before school! LOL

Sidewalk sales in Verdun now are not the same anymore
with the closing of so many stores . I remember people pulling and
grabbing stuff right out of your hand . they did that alot at
Maxis everybody went there. Its before all these Dollarstore
came out. Now it seem they sell the same stuff over and
over again years ago had bags and bags of bargains to
brag about .

Regarding sidewalk sales,
I was in Verdun last summer, seems like I remember Wellington been closed of to traffic for a few days on a weekend, they were having a gigantic street sale.
I saw the same happenings in Ville Emard on a different week-end. the streets were bustling with people.

Yes, they still have them every year - it is a big summer event - about two days I think.
