Sidewalk Sales Days – a Street Activity Program implemented by Jamaica BID some years ago permitting the retailers to place their racks in front of their stores to promote their brands, and provide shoppers with quality products and savings. The event bringing shoppers from Philadelphia, Baltimore, and as far as North Carolina, who take a bus ride to #JamaicaAvenue, NYC’s Hottest Destination [Gothomist 2016]just to shop on #JamaicaAvenue!!!
The Sidewalk Sales Days are the only dates and times when businesses are permitted to display merchandise outside, including hanging items from awnings and/or canopies. Merchandise, racks, tables, and/or hangers cannot extend more than five feet from the building.
Businesses who are not in compliance, with the BID’s permitted days, will be FINED.
