The registration deadline closes May 9. Maps will be available on the city’s website (www.andovermn.gov) and at Andover City Hall, 1685 Crosstown Blvd. NW, by May 14.

The sale hours each of the three days are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Salvation Army will be at the Andover YMCA/Community Center, 15200 Hanson Blvd. NW, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 18, to collect any unsold household items you would like to donate.

As of early Tuesday afternoon, May 6, about 90 people had filled out the application to have their garage sale included in this three-day event.

Dana Makinen, human resources manager for the city of Andover and citywide garage sale organizer, said a lot of people sign up at the last minute so she expects there to be many more than 90 places to shop next week. She said only about 60 people had signed up a week prior to last year’s citywide garage sale before the final total ballooned to 174 households.
