The fun girls over at Beach Scrapbooks, one of our devoted QuicKutz retailers, had an amazing National Scrapbook Day/Gift Set Release Party at their store last weekend. Hear about it in their own words:
In honor of National Scrapbooking Day and the QuicKutz Gift Set release, we decided to kick-off the weekend with a Beach Scrapbooks Midnight Madness Party. On Friday night, we closed the doors at 9 p.m. in order to prepare. We took all the dies out of the packages and displayed them on the EZ Storage Magnetic Sheets. We also hung the <adorable> tote bags up for everyone to see. By 10 p.m., there was already a line forming! (Don’t feel bad for them though…it was warm outside AND we served them brownies!)
When we reopened the doors at 11 p.m., food, drinks AND karaoke were waiting for them! Plus, there were a few good laughs at our costumes. Our entire staff of 9 dressed up in the themes of the gift sets. Some wore tacky tourist outfits (yes, we do see a lot of socks with flip flops in Virginia Beach!) and BBQ aprons. Others donned their pink jammies, bright lipstick and wide brimmed hats. And, yes, some even came all decked out in their best recyclables.
Customers sang, danced and shopped. To encourage singing, we gave away some GREAT prizes – including QuicKutz alphabets. People are not-so-shy when there’s a 2x2 alphabet available on the prize table!
Together, as if it were New Year’s Eve, we counted down the last 10 seconds until it was 12:01 a.m., May 2nd. The gift sets were officially on sale, and two cash registers were crazy busy for the next hour. The singing continued and people lingered as if it were the middle of the afternoon. Not only did we sell an incredible amount of gift sets, but we had an absolutely AMAZING bonding time with our customers. Yes, the 30% off storewide sale helped, but overall, it was a night to remember. AND to scrapbook, of course J
