Garage Sale Registration Form 2021
The officials at Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce have scheduled the Community-Wide Garage Sale on Saturday, May 22, 2021 from 9 AM until 4 PM. The Chamber is encouraging people to get up in their attics, basements, and garages and start sorting and cleaning. Erica Dreher, Member Outreach Coordinator at GOACC states, “Garage sales are very well attended events. More than 107 houses participated last year and more than 240 maps were handed out. We encourage residents to hold garage sales at their homes or join with neighbors to hold block sales.”
For anyone who is interested in holding a garage sale at their home, they need to register their address with GOACC and will be place on the garage sale map for a $5 fee. GOACC will need address, and a short list of items that the home would be selling. The week of the garage sale days, please stop back to the chamber and pick up your FREE Garage Sale sign that has space to list your address.
Households will also pick up information packet from the Cattaraugus County Health Department. The packet contains information on how one can clean their private facility, guidelines on how to place merchandise out and to limit the number of buyers to the sale at one time. GOACC also stresses those coming to the sales, to maintain six feet distancing from others and to wear face coverings.
Deadline to enter is Wednesday, May 19 at NOON. Maps depicting the locations of the garages sales will be available on Friday, May 21 and also will be outside the GOACC office on the morning of the sales, beginning at 7 AM until 9 AM. Mail or drop off garage sale information to GOACC, 301 North Union Street. You may also fax information to 372-7912 or email.
