'Dawg Daze' sale in Ellicott City called a success

September 02, 1992

Visitors from as far away as New Jersey and Pennsylvania packed the streets of historic Ellicott City over the weekend, thanks to sunny skies and the second "Dawg Daze of Summer Sale."

Despite little advertising, many business owners are calling the weekend a success.

"The sidewalk sale definitely helped," said Sun Pacylowski, owner of Precious Gifts in the Banker's Galleria.

"There [were] a lot of people."

Some stores, like Maxine's Antiques and Collectables on Main Street, reported higher sales than last year.

But others, like Esprit dress shop, reported the same volume of business.

"Business everywhere is slow," said Esprit owner Teno Rozegar, whose shop sells women's clothing. "Two years ago was much better."

"I think most of them are holding their own," said Barry Gibson, president of the Ellicott City Business Association.

"Most of them are keeping their figures from last year," he said.

The second August sidewalk sale is part of the business association's push to promote historic Ellicott City, Mr. Gibson said.
