In such a stinky economy, retailers are trying to make money however they can.
Now Ashely Stewart Stores has indicated that they will host a special “Celebrating History” event on Monday, January 19, 2009.
Ashley Stewart will mark Prez-elect Obama’s inauguration by
- offering customers a 15% discount off of their entire purchase
- providing customers with “Yes We Can” t-shirts for $10.00 at all 218 locations.
- providing music and entertainment in stores and light refreshments at select locations in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Chicago, DC/Baltimore, and Maryland,
- distributing “Yes We Can” pins as a free gift with purchase for customers shopping in stores on that day
Go on into Ashley Stewart and get some free stuff.
The retailer will also be donating 5% of proceeds from the day’s sales to a scholarship fund for students at Howard University (my alma mater!!!) in Washington, DC.
