Think Barrington First!

Village of Barrington News
July 3, 2017

When you head out on a Saturday to do your shopping and dining for the weekend, do you “THINK BARRINGTON FIRST?”


Barrington has dozens of unique shops and restaurants where you can find everything from all-American products to delicious homemade candy and donuts to beautiful clothing and one-of-a-kind gifts.

From Thursday through Saturday, July 6-8, Barrington’s merchants will have their wares on display and on sale at the village’s newly revamped Sidewalk Sale Fun Days. The dates were moved up from previous years (in the past the sale has been held at the end of July) in order to take advantage of all the July 4 activity in the village this weekend, including the UnCork Wine Festival and Brewfest.

Throughout the village (see attached map), stores will have sidewalk displays from 10 am – 5pm on Thursday and Friday and 10 am to 3 pm on Saturday, where they’ll be offering deals of up to 75% off!

Adding to the fun, local radio station STAR 105.5 will be doing LIVE broadcasts from noon to 2:00 p.m. on both Thursday and Saturday, from a location near McGonigal’s on Park Avenue and Cook Street. The station’s live radio personalities will be promoting our “Think Barrington First” campaign and be giving away gift certificates to local stores.

In addition, numerous crafters and vendors have also been invited to participate in this year’s Sidewalk Sale Fun Days. They will be setting up tents in both the Jewel parking lot downtown and at the Gazebo area in the village.

We hope everyone will have a chance to come on out and “Think Barrington First” at Sidewalk Sale Fun Days this weekend!
