From Bridget Moore of the Valencia Corridor Merchants Association we learn about their sidewalk sale this weekend.


30+ Valencia Corridor Merchants host Small Business Sidewalk Sale
In honor of Small Business week (May 14-20) the VCMA will celebrating small businesses along Valencia by hosting a day long multi business event Saturday May 19th 11-8 pm. Sales, Giveaways, Pop-Up Shops, Art Openings, Menu Specials, Music and More will take over the corridor from 14th Street to 29th (side streets included!) Below is a list of participating businesses and their event details. We feel this to be a strong and well-received event, despite certain businesses suffering setbacks from the Valencia Street Riots that took place on April 30th. We are going to show everyone we can take a beating and still throw a party.
