NEOSHO, Mo. — The two-day 25th anniversary Neosho Citywide Garage Sale on Friday and Saturday was such a success that the Neosho Area Chamber of Commerce will consider making the sale a two-day event in future years.

“The restaurants were packed,” said Shana Griffin, chamber executive director. “Everything was a great success.”

Gib Garrow, chamber economic development director, said he has heard reports that shoppers hit sales in the busy areas on Friday and moved to the more out-of-the-way sales on Saturday.
