NOTE: Shoppers line up early on the first day of the sale to find the best collectible albums and other bargains, so if covering the sale, 9:45am would be a good time to arrive to capture the most action – when doors open through noon.
The Southern Illinois Radio Information Service (SIRIS) and WSIU Public Radio, the public radio stations of Southern Illinois University Carbondale, are co-hosting the sale with the University Mall for the sixth straight year. This year's sponsors include the SIU Credit Union in Carbondale, Energy, Marion, Harrisburg, and Metropolis, and Wright Do-It Center in Murphysboro.
Proceeds benefit the Southern Illinois Radio Information Service (SIRIS), a service ofWSIU Public Radio and SIU Carbondale for individuals who are blind or whose physical condition makes reading difficult or impossible. SIRIS is supported in part by the United Way of Southern Illinois. Visit SIRIS on Facebook at www.facebook.com/siris.wsiu.
