Summer Sale: From sidewalks to the street
The following is derived from a statement sent to members of the business community by the Commissioners and the Partnership for Haddonfield on Wednesday, July 22.
The Board of Commissioners and the Partnership for Haddonfield are excited to announce that the 2020 Super Summer Sale will be held Thursday, August 6 through Sunday, August 9.
In celebration of this inaugural event, which builds on the success of our historic Sidewalk Sale, Kings Highway will be closed to vehicular traffic from PATCO to Haddon Avenue on Thursday, August 6th, and Friday, August 7, from 11am to 7pm.
In order to maintain the health and safety of our community, no retail merchandise will be permitted on the sidewalks between PATCO and Haddon Avenue. Instead, Borough officials are working to provide a specific plan that will permit merchandise to be displayed and sold on the Highway by each retailer, with direction as to the placement of displays in order to maintain social distancing and provide for an adequate fire lane in the event of emergency.
Outdoor dining will continue to be permitted on existing, designated sidewalk areas. Dining tables are not permitted in the street during the Sale.
We hope that this “new” event will promote Downtown Haddonfield as the wonderful destination that it is! Please join with Borough officials in adhering to State-issued guidance: masks and social distancing are to be encouraged and we hope to do so in a friendly, positive manner that is both welcoming and celebratory.
Your safety and that of our entire community, as well as our visitors, is of the utmost importance. Where possible, arrange for contact-free payment options, provide access to hand sanitizer and disposable masks, and frequently sanitize high-touch points. Remind customers to touch only what they intend to purchase as you welcome them back for shopping this summer!
On Saturday, August 8 and Sunday, August 9, the Super Summer Sale will be in-store only. Sales on the sidewalk and in the street are prohibited on those dates, as the road will be open for vehicular traffic. We are grateful for your continued presence in our Borough, and hope that the Sale is a huge success!
