BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Garage and yard sales are allowed to resume in Western New York, according to state officials.

Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul released this statement to 7 Eyewitness News:
“I know that many people rely on garage sales and yard sales to sell unwanted items or to shop for good finds for their families. I spent many Saturdays in search of children’s toys and clothes at sales in my community, so I know their value.
While approval to hold sales with less than 10 people in a space and where people are socially distanced and wearing masks is good news, we are relying on our residents to make sure they follow the necessary precautions to protect themselves and their customers.“

The World's Largest Yard Sale, which happens at the Hamburg Fairgrounds, was pushed back until September.
