The Salvation Army Kroc Center is encouraging all who are planning on having a garage sale to consider being a part of the “7th Annual Upscale Garage Sale”. The indoor event will take place Saturday, April 4, from   8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Event entry is just $1 for non-members. Kroc Members will receive free admission.

Last year there were some 30 vendor booths set up as part of this event. In addition to traditional garage sales, vendors from the area are also encouraged to participate in the event.

The annual event allows the public to get a head start on spring cleaning by purchasing vendor booths inside the Kroc Center gymnasium to sell unwanted items or sell products. A 10’x10’ booth can be rented for $35. A 10’x20’ booth can be rented for $70. Booths needing electrical access, which are limited in availability, can be rented for an additional $10. Booth payment must be made by March 27.

Vendors are encouraged to reserve their booth spaces soon, as space is limited. Following the event, vendors have the option of donating their unwanted merchandise to The Salvation Army Family Store rather than moving it again. The Family Store truck will be on-site to accept those items.
