Sen. Schmidt promotes annual Traverse City Sidewalk Sale, Michigan-made products

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. — Sen. Wayne Schmidt, R-Traverse City, joined area residents, business owners, and tourists on Friday at the annual Traverse City Sidewalk Sale.

Every summer during the month of August, shops along the 100 and 200 blocks of Traverse City’s Front Street open their doors to display products and show off their best deals. The street is closed to traffic and the sales usually run from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.

“The annual sidewalk sale has been a staple of Traverse City summers since 1958,” Schmidt said. “It gives residents and tourists alike an opportunity to get out, enjoy good food and company and browse the streets filled with many made-in-Michigan products.”
