Replacements, Ltd. Gears Up for Spring Sidewalk Sale
Thousands Expected for Three Day Event
GREENSBORO, N.C., May 11, 2010 - Replacements, Ltd. is busy preparing nearly a dozen tractor-trailer loads of merchandise to transform the company’s parking lot into a bargain hunter’s paradise for its Spring Sidewalk Sale, slated for June 4 – 6, 2010. The world’s largest supplier of old and new china, crystal, silver and collectibles expects thousands of shoppers for the three day event; a similar sale last spring attracted consumers from across the Southeast.
“Because we had to cancel our fall sale due to inclement weather, we’ve been sitting on inventory all winter waiting for this event,” says Robin Long, Replacements’ vice president of product marketing and business development. “Since we’ve accumulated this wide array of tremendously discounted inventory, this sale will have a wider variety and greater selection than past events with some pieces discounted up to 90 percent off MSRP. Shoppers will be able to purchase by the individual piece or in bulk, allowing them to decorate their table at a fraction of the original retail.”
Savvy shoppers will find bargains on thousands of pieces of inventory, including china, glassware, flatware and collectibles from well known manufacturers such as Lenox, Johnson Brothers, Wedgwood and Noritake, among others. This year’s event will also feature vintage restaurant china.
“Dozens of people were already lined up when we opened for our last Sidewalk Sale event,” says Keith Winkler, manager of product marketing and business development. “We don’t want folks to be intimidated by the fact we’re expecting big crowds, so we’re taking steps to make the event convenient for everyone who wants to come out. We’re going to replenish stock throughout the sale so shoppers won’t have to worry about missing out on great finds if they can’t get here early.”
The sale runs 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. June 4 and 5, and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday, June 6. Replacements, Ltd. is located just off I-40/I-85 (exit 132) at 1089 Knox Road, McLeansville, N.C.
