Shoppers steal deals from sidewalk sale

Shoppers in Five Points Saturday for Summer Sidewalk Sale.

COLUMBIA (WACH)-Shoppers hit the sidewalks of Five Points Saturday for its "Summer Sidewalk Sale."

Merchants offered sales, specials and discounts along with trunk shows and all the new fashions.

Organizers say the intention is to help boost slow summer sales for the independent retail merchants and provide patrons the opportunity to keep their dollars in their community as well as benefit from the great sales and specials.

"It brings a lot of customers," says Amber Barron from WISH Boutique, "We have five dollars off all tops and ten dollars off all dresses. It brings tons of people in we love it we have tons of fun here, lots of moms and families come in and we just have fun with it."

Shopping was also made eco-friendly with free "I love Five Points" reusable tote bags.
