ROCKFORD, Mich. — There are many things I love, but these two things are right up there at the top of the list: bargains and shoes.

So, imagine the overwhelming excitement of knowing there is a massive tent sale from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 28, at Wolverine Worldwide, 9341 Courtland Drive NE! You can’t miss the line of people, but the tent is located a the central store’s parking lot right under the water tower.

People line up hours early to snag 80 percent off great brands including Merrell, Patagonia, Saucony, Sperry, Top-Sider, Stride Rite, Wolverine, Harley Davidson and beyond.

Prices are remarkable, ranging from $10 to $40 on more than 10,000 pairs of shoes for every member of the family. Not to mention apparel for men and women.

Can’t get there by 11 a.m.? Don’t sweat it! New items are added to the sale EVERY hour!

For those who want to get there dark and early, numbers through 800 will be handed out starting at 6 a.m. and you must return to the line by 10 a.m. in order to get in at 11 a.m. Only 220 people will be let into the tent at a time, so please keep that in mind. Due to the space, please do not bring strollers.

You can get up to 30 items at a time, meaning a mix of clothing and shoes, but only up to 30. You may get back in line, if you wish to continue buying another 30 and so on.

You can pay with cash, check, or credit card, and all proceeds go to Heart of West Michigan United Way. Please keep in mind that all sales are final and there are no returns, exchanges or refunds.
