City Wide Garage Sale 2014 Coquitlam Port Coquitlam Port Moody

Have you been doing some spring cleaning? If so, you likely have a box (or five) full of stuff you don’t need or aren’t using anymore. If you have been meaning to run by the thrift store to donate it, you might want to re-consider. City-wide garage sales are coming to the Tri-Cities. Port Coquitlam will host its annual de-cluttering on April 26, 2014, while Port Moody and Coquitlam will follow suit on May 10, 2014.

Of course you could hold a garage sale anytime, but there are some reasons to do it during one of the city-wide events. There will be even more bargain hunters than usual combing city streets, lured by the promise of not just one or two sales but dozens. As well, the cities promote the sales at no cost to you. If you want to get in on the action, the deadlines are coming up fast, so pay close attention for all the info.
