Speaking with a customer the other day, the subject of sales came up. He mentioned his favourite all time sale was the Alphabet backstock sale I did a few years ago. Basically a different section of the bins would be on sale each week. This gives the customer a smaller section to concentrate on when making his/her purchases as well as plan ahead for the titles they might be most interested in. This works well for me too, as it gives me time to update the bins at a more leisurely pace as the sale progresses.
So, an Alphabet sale it is. Starting Tuesday October 23rd – Sunday October 29th, all titles in the main bins (in the center of the store) starting with the letters A-B-C–D and E, will be going for the low price of $1.00 each. That’s right, all Avengers, Batman, Captain America, Daredevil, and others in that section will be $1.00 each + tax. Remember that my bins are mostly sorted by character rather than title so that Amazing Spiderman or Action would be in the S section.
Each Tuesday the sale will move to the next section for one week, so next up will be all the titles from F-L. Each week’s sale will be listed clearly in store and I will follow up here on the blog every Sunday.
MEMBERS BONUS- To make the sale even more special for the members (and to make up for the lack of a discount card this time around) for every $10.00 spent on backstock during the sale, you will receive a $1.00 credit towards paperbacks. You can use this credit right away, or save it up until the end of the sale. Remember that Customer Appreciation Day is the last weekend in November, lots of great deals will be made even better when using the credit you earned during the backstock sale.
