Registrations Now Available for Russell Community Garage Sale

2017 Russell Community Garage SaleScheduled for Saturday, June 3 from 8 AM to 3 PM, the Russell Community Garage Sale will welcome shoppers into town for a day of bargain hunting and treasure seeking.

Russell Community Theater and Advantage Realty are sponsoring this year's event and are striving to increase outreach and promotion efforts to ensure a successful day for all participants.

Individuals, organizations and local businesses are encouraged to participate in a variety of ways. Hosting a garage sale, whether individual or multi-family, gives old treasures a chance to find a new home. Organizations might consider a group garage sale or a lunch stand. Businesses may consider special sales or discounts.

Registered participants will benefit from the promotion of the big day - press releases, public presentations, social media outreach, and local and area media advertising - all thanks to Russell Community Theater and Advantage Realty.

Printed Garage Sale Guides will include a detailed map of all registered participants and will be available to the public starting Wednesday, May 31. The Russell County GIS & Mapping Department and Russell County Economic Development & CVB will be assisting with creating the maps and printing registration forms. Additional printing and outreach will be provided by Office Products Inc. of Russell.

All proceeds from Russell Community Garage Sale registrations directly benefit Russell Community Theater.
