The message reads, “with sadness…we will NOT be having our neighborhood garage sale. Due to our current situation this will not be possible. Although we will not organize as a group, I’m sure many garage sales will occur throughout the summer and maybe an organized event can happen at another date. Stay indoors, stay safe, stay healthy!”

The annual Grand Tierra/Chantry Estates neighborhood garage sales typically land on the last weekend in April or first weekend in May drawing in large crowds of the central Minnesota community. It’s expected that given the current situation and 'shelter in place' order from Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz, several community garage sales will start following suit.
