The Kingston and St Andrew Corporation's (KSAC) city inspector Alrick Francis says there are still vending spots available for the upcoming Downtown Summer Sizzle Savings Shopping Spree.

Francis noted that there are 150 spaces available inside St William Grant Park, and less than half that have been taken for the July 26 to 28 event.

But he is confident that all booths will be filled by tomorrow's deadline.

"I have been manning the phones for the last week and I have been getting the calls, persons asking me to reserve their spot as they get the registration fee together.

"Some have told me they will be ready by Monday afternoon. So I am very pleased from my end how things are going," said Francis.

It will cost $20,000, inclusive of a $2,000 ID fee, for the three days for vendors using tents.

Francis clarified that vendors selling smaller items like cigarettes and snacks are also eligible for a space. Their fee is $6,000.
