Annual Downtown Sidewalk Sale held in Joplin

JOPLIN, Mo. —Four-state bargain hunters were in luck today.

The city of Joplin held its annual downtown sidewalk sale.

Businesses along main street between fourth and seventh came out to sell new items to the community and other visitors.

The annual event occurs during the last Saturday in July, – and one downtown business owner tells koam – this is one of the biggest days of the year for Joplin’s downtown business community. 

“This is one of our busiest days of the year, people look forward to it,  we’ve been having phone calls for probably a couple of months are we going to have one this year. because last year with covid we were unable to,” said Harold Berger, Pearl Brother’s True Value Hardware store owner.

The store’s owner also says this event is a winner because it gets more people into the downtown Joplin area, and it gets local businesses more exposure.
