In response to concerns about boxes and other "place holders"
being left unattended outside the school before the Sale, the Lebanon
SAU Facilities Director has agreed that customers may be allowed to
leave unattended boxes as place holders at the Main Entrance. Pedestrian
safety in the walkway remains a major concern. Therefore, customers
wanting to leave place holders are asked to line up their boxes behind
the barriers prior to the Sale opening. Please review and respect the
signs to some of the highlights listed below, and enjoy the treasure
hunt for the rest:
