The Annual Alexandria Summer Sidewalk Sale has just announced that for its fifth consecutive year, the event will take place not only on Saturday, August 9, but Sunday, August 10 as well. With more than 50 businesses holding sales as unbelievable as 80% off, this is a two-day shopping affair you won't forgive yourself for missing. Get ready to save at The Shoe Hive and Bishop Boutique, as well as Del Ray Variety with their unbeatable deals.
Neither rain nor 100 degree heat will stop this event from being a success, so get ready to shop, because double the days means double the deals. Click here for a complete list of all participating businesses. —Kate Friedman
