Waaaaaaay up North a little town exists where families live, schools are good and the grass is greener. Actually, it's oftentimes pretty much like any other neighborhood-y neighborhood in Chicago - gritty at times, accessible via pub trans and they know how to mark things on sale. And that is just what's going to happen come July 12-July 14th -- a sale. The Central Street Business Association announces the Annual Summer Sidewalk Sale along 6 blocks of Central Street when shops like Allegro, Gavin, Stella, Perennials, Lois & Co. and Notice mark their mercy at 20-70%. Hey, we may even see an appearance from Racked 38 Member, Chalk Boutique. [Racked Inbox]
