Multi-family, huge sale!

Four families. Lots of stuff!

Bass boat, hunting and fishing.

Multiple families, something for everyone!

Morenci’s community-wide garage sale event kicks off Saturday morning, so get ready to shop for bargains.

The final count of registered sales came in at 89 this year—a little below the average, but still very strong.

Maps showing the location of sales, along with a brief description of items for sale, will be available in stores Saturday morning.

Hungry shoppers will have several choices for refreshments. In addition to items offered at restaurants and stores, look for sales of baked goods at various locations, sponsored by the Morenci PTO.

The United Methodist Church members will serve lunch on the church lawn and the Morenci Fire Department has scheduled a chicken barbecue that starts at 11 a.m.

The annual garage sale event is sponsored by the Morenci Area Chamber of Commerce.

Morenci recycling center will not be open Saturday. The city-wide trash collection will follow next Saturday, July 24.
