West Hartford Center Sale Days

From the West Hartford Chamber of Commerce:

Head to West Hartford this July for the Summer Sale Days, Thursday, July 9 – Saturday, July 11.

A West Hartford tradition, this annual sidewalk sale and community event showcases West Hartford Center’s unique shopping district.

More than 150 shops, boutiques, galleries and restaurants-many locally owned-offer terrific bargains on clothing, jewelry, gifts, artwork, food, drink and more in this festive, family-friendly event. There will be free balloons, face-painting and bubbles for the kids.

And how about a chair massage for you? Come to the Center to shop ’til you drop, then relax and have something to eat at one of the many local restaurants.

Location: West Hartford Center including Farmington Avenue, Lasalle Road, South Main Street and Blue Back Square
