The famous 'Crazy Day Sale' is coming back to town

LONG term Chinchilla residents may remember the Crazy Day sales from their childhood and will be pleased to know the Chinchilla Community Commerce and Industry Inc is bringing it back.

Next Friday, June 21, dozens of local businesses are getting on the sale bandwagon offering customers never before seen bargains.

"Local businesses wanted to reward their customers and approached the CCCI to help coordinate the return of Crazy Day Sales,” CCCI manager, Robyn Haig said.

"Over 20 businesses in town have signed up to support the market but there will be far more participating on the day itself.”

Next Friday, businesses all over town will be boasting major savings from 9am-5pm with several stores already getting behind the initiative sharing their upcoming specials on social media.

Ms Haig warned the majority of the sales won't be advertised until the day of and is encouraging shoppers to get out and see what they can track down.

"It's definitely worth customers wandering down to the retail sectors and checking out the social media event on Facebook to see what specials are on offer as you won't see all the bargains unless you visit the store on the day,” she said.

Ms Haig also said Crazy Day could become a more regular event if next Friday proves successful and is well-supported by the local community.

"It's also a bit of a throw back to when a trip to town to go shopping was a real treat and had a bigger social factor for shoppers,” she said.

Despite a few decades, Ms Haig says one thing hasn't changed around town.

"This event will be a great fit for the Chinchilla retail sector because businesses here still provide good old- fashioned customer service which everyone knows and loves.”
