ELIZABETHTOWN — Tropical Storm Hermine didn’t do much to deter folks from coming out for Elizabethtown’s annual Labor Day Sidewalk Sale.
“We came from Garland for this,” said Teresa Smith as she browsed through clothes outside on Friday. “My daughter loves these (Patagonia) jackets, so we didn’t want to miss it.”
“Ain’t no hurricane going to stop this store from doing business,” said Leinwand’s owner Ricky Leinwand, who also said his store hadn’t suffered at all from Friday’s less-than-ideal conditions.
Not everyone dared to put their merchandise outside, however.
“We didn’t put anything out because of the weather, but our sale is still going on,” said Ray Britt, owner of Ray’s Furniture and Appliances. “We’ve got jewelry that’s half off the lowest price, and that’s stirring up quite a bit of reaction.”
He added, “We’d like to see the rain go away, but that’s nature, and we have to accept it and go on.”’
