The weather looks good for Saturday,  a perfect day to get out and shop Fort Scott.


This Saturday, May 30, eleven retail stores have signed up to be a part of the Merchant Madness Sidewalk Sale, hosted by the  Fort Scott Chamber of Commerce.


The event will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and participating stores will be marked with purple balloons, according to Rita Schroeder, the Chamber’s administrative assistant.


Those who have signed up: include Bids & Dibs, Books & Grannies (inside), Heidrick’s True Value/Nancy’s Gift Corner, Fort Scott Gun & Pawn, Hedgehog.INK (inside),  J & W Sports Shop, Main St. Gallery & Gifts, Mayco Ace Hardware, Ruddick’s Furniture, Sunshine Boutique, Iron Star (inside) and Treasure Hunt Flea Market.



In light of the COVID 19 Pandemic, most businesses will have hand sanitizer available before touching items in the sale.


However, bringing one’s own sanitizer is a good option while shopping.


Hedgehog.INK is asking all who enter their store to wear masks as well.


Social distancing is in force in the county for all public events.
