Chamber Says Rock Falls Garage Sale Weekend Had Positive Impact on the Community

Did you go to any garage sales in Rock Falls over the weekend and did you get some good deals.  Bethany Bland, President of the Rock Falls Chamber of Commerce hopes you did.

Bland said it turned into a busy weekend with a positive impact on the community.  There were over 120 registered garage sales and despite the weather, Bland said shoppers showed up.  One of the impacts Bland mentioned is the economic impact as people spent money around town while they were out and about.

Another positive impact is the simple fact people were able to get out and move around town, visit their neighbors as well as pick up a good deal.  Bland said with so many shoppers it was easier to not have large crowds gather and social distancing was maintained.

Bland said it was a busy time and more busy times are on the way in Rock Falls.
