January Sidewalk Sale
Celebrate the start of 2015 with four days of great specials and deals during Haddonfield’s 6th Annual Winter Sidewalk Sale taking place Thursday, January 22 through Sunday, January 25. The sale will be held both in-store and outdoors – making it a true ‘sidewalk’ sale event. New this year is a complimentary heated trolley that will be making regular, continuous stops at each street in the Downtown on Saturday, January 24 and Sunday, January 25 from noon – 4 p.m. This will allow visitors to travel in warmth from one place to the next while taking in the sights and sounds of the beautiful Downtown. The Winter Sidewalk Sale hours are: Thursday, January 22 and Friday, January 23 from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.; Saturday, January 24 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.; and Sunday, January 25 from noon – 5 p.m. Check with the individual stores for their exact hours.

A new town-wide event is taking place on Saturday, February 7 from 1 – 4 p.m. The event features New Jersey bottled wines as yet another option to purchase and enjoy while in Haddonfield – and is a perfect pairing to the many Valentine’s Day specials and promotions that shops throughout the Downtown will be offering in anticipation of the February 14 holiday. So whether you seek traditional gifts like wine, chocolates and flowers; a romantic spot for dinner and wine for two; or unique gifts that are a little less traditional, it can be found in Downtown Haddonfield – during ‘Haddonfield Uncorked’ or any day of the week. Haddonfield is a “dry” town by law; however, thanks to a recently approved Alcohol Management Plan for Retail Outlets prepared by the Garden State Wine Growers Association, shop owners in Haddonfield can now lease a portion of their business to one of the area’s local wine growers for the sale of Jersey-grown wines by the bottle to the business’s patrons.
