Rita Burns, manager at Good Cheer, restocks items during the first Ken’s Korner Summer Sidewalk Sale on Saturday.

The sale included 12 businesses at Ken’s Korner and a raffle drawing for $100 worth of items donated by the various businesses.  Customers received a ‘passport’ to start their shopping. With each store visited, customers received a raffle ticket for the prize.

Good Cheer created the event to draw attention to the businesses at the center, said Shawn Nowlin, community outreach coordinator for Good Cheer. She said the two-day sale was successful, aside from the rain on Friday.

Nowlin said she was aiming the event for a “hot August night,” but instead got “river run through Saturday.”

Nowlin said she will continue the event next year.
