YXE Sidewalk Sale Is On

posted by My Saskatoon    |   July 10, 2015 11:07

The summer sales that everyone has been waiting for is here!  From July 9-11th,  downtown Saskatoon stores have filled the streets with racks beyond racks of blowout prices!  The streets are closed off from traffic from 9:00AM-9:00PM so whether you are an early bird to get the best deals or an evening stroll window shopper, there is a lot of action happening downtown this weekend. With live entertainment and food and drink stations lining  the streets of Second Avenue,  this is perfect time to get out and check out what YXE has to offer! Two of My Saskatoon's favourite shops are taking part of the sidewalk sale, here is what Paramount Day Spa & Boutique and Era Style Loft have to say....

"We have been in business for 65 years and we find it very important to support local because without the support of Saskatoon shoppers, local businesses like ours can not exist. We are participating in the annual sidewalk sale for the first time this year, along with our neighbouring local stores like Awl Shoppe, Harden and Huyse, Pink Tree and Signature Home Styles. The YummTruck food truck is parked on the corner parking lot Thursday-Friday and there is a charity BBQ on Saturday for Beads of Courage so come out and enjoy some food while you shop! We are open from 10:00am-7:30pm on Thursday 10:00am-6:00pm on Friday and 10:00am-4:00pm on Saturday and as far as sales go, we have plenty! Accessories, clothing and salon and spa products are available at huge discounts. Our items are 30-70% off and our Dot System Sale starts at $5.00 and goes up to $50.00 items so stop by and check out our amazing deals and shop local this weekend!".... Sarah-Dutka-Smith, Paramount Day Spa & Salon

"We love that because we are a local store we can bring in unique items that you wouldn't find in big box stores. We make an effort to shop local in Saskatoon because we as business owners of our own local clothing store know how important it is to keep local thriving in the city. This weekend  we are featuring a huge denim sales from skinny jeans to cut-off jean shorts.  We are having a 40-70% discount on clothing, shoes, accessories and handbags, including designer brands like Rebecca Minkoff, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Rag and Bone. We have that perfect cocktail dress for that summer wedding on sale along with silk tanks and classic tees! Our store is open from 10:00am-9:00pm on Thursday and 10:00am-6:00pm on Friday and Saturday so come in quick and take advantage of the designer brands that you love for half the price!"......Lauren Evans and Julie Andreas, Era Style Loft
