Here are a couple of heads ups that have come my way via the entirely unbiased world of store publicists. I relay them only for your convenience, and because I actually HAVE shopped at both these stores and DO like them very much. That said, neither flack seems to care enough about my kid's education to offer me a dime (or a farthing, respectively), but hey, it's Christmas so here goes:
I used to love eating at the extremely casual restaurant in the back of the store, but at some point, they decided to become a showroom or a marketing concept or whatever, so retail action like this is something of a throwback for them.
Anyway, they're having Dads Shopping Nights from 6-9pm Thurs 12/16 (tomorrow!) and next Thursday, 12/23 (which is cuttin' it kind of close), with personal shoppers (is that British for 'sales clerks'?) complimentary gift wrapping (I'd hope so, guv'nuh), foosball while you're waiting (??) and "plenty of cool beers will be available to ease Dads into the festive spirit." (a-ha.)
