For the past three decades, the stores of Greenwich Ave. have  come together for the annual Sidewalk Sales. 

"The Sidewalk Sales has been a long standing tradition of our Chamber of Commerce. It's the time when we get to showcase and present all of our retail society at its best," said Marcia O'Kane, the Executive Director of the Greenwich Chamber of commerce. 

People come from all over to catch big sales on merchandise. O'Kane said that she believes this will be the highest attended sidewalk sales in history because of the amount of stores participating. 

"This is the largest Sidewalk Sales ever with the most participants. Last year we had 120 vendors participate, and this year, over 135 vendors. We are breaking all records," said O'Kane. 

For new stores, such as Roberta Roller Rabbit, this is their first experience with the sales. 

"We are actually celebrating our third month. we are a new store here to the Greenwich community. It's our eleventh store within the United States. We are really happy to be here," said Alyse Karakoc, the Director of Merchandising at Roberta Roller Rabbit on Greenwich Ave. 

The Sidewalk Sales bring the community together and give stores the chance to introduce their products to people traveling from other towns and cities. 

"We actually wanted to participate in the sidewalk sales just to be part of the Greenwich community. We are just so happy to be here and we know how much everybody loves to come out. It's about participating," said Karakoc. 

Before you head down to Greenwich Ave, O'Kane has some advice

"Bring your walking shoes, bring plenty of quarters, and have a great time. Come on down," said O'Kane. 

You can catch the sales on the Ave. until Sunday at 6 p.m.
