Chamber Chatter: Many Merchants to Teach Courses at Bronxville Adult School Print


August 17, 2011:  I was out of town at the beach last week and came back to a flurry of emails about wonderful end-of-summer--sad, but true!--sales in and around town.  Some of our stores were closed for part of the summer, but all will be open come September, and they anticipate assisting all of us with our fall shopping needs!

At Weezie D, all summer clothing is on sale.  You will save 50% off all swimsuits, all cover-ups, and all summer bags!

J.McLaughlin is hosting its summer sale, and it will have you running to the store! Many of its gorgeous fashions are available for one-third of the regular price!

Toney Toni and the Gang is running a summer sale on many of its beautiful warm weather styles.

The Silk Road's end-of-summer sale begins August 18.  Take advantage of 20 to 70% off summer tops and jackets, assorted rings and necklaces, select floral arrangements, floor sample rugs, tablecloths and napkins, and furniture.
