Downtown Holland sidewalk sales started today and the beautiful weather brought big crowds. Over 50 different merchants participate in the two day sale, some bringing their products outside and some leaving them inside. Most stores will have sales, but Fustini’s oils and vinegars shop has a unique way to get shoppers into their store.
“We have our chef in town today and he’s made a bunch of different samples and showing you how to use our products different oils and different vinegars in everything from bread dipping top marinades and right now we have a dessert," said store manager Denise Walburg.
Walburg said this is a great way to help sell her products.
"I think once you show people how to use our products they feel more confident and they’ve tasted how good it is so they want to make it themselves," Walburg said.
The sidewalk sales will run until 9 tonight and from 9 am until 5 p.m. on Saturday on 8th street.
