Secret Discount Word, and $195 Contest

November 15, 2011

Hi,

Cisco the blogging Harwich Spirits Shoppe cat here…

First off… Don’t forget that the secret ‘Discount Word of the Moment’ is “SALE”… Just mention that at the register before the clerk begins to ring up your purchases and you will receive a 10% discount. (Not applicable on lottery items.)

Next up… How would you like to be on the inside of a very small, very sweet contest?

Yup, that’s a $195 load of birdseed delivered right to your door so long as you live in the good old continental U.S. of A. and are the first to answer the upcoming contest question… No joke… Absolutely no freaking joke. (What a fantastic Christmas present!) But it gets better… The contest will be super easy so long as you can think outside of the box. If you’re someone who hits the panic button when faced with something seemingly complicated, you won’t have a chance. But if you can think on your feet… Easy Breezy… Best to work as a team… And what will you win? Take a look…

The contest will probably roll out this Wednesday PM and will be solved by the first clever person who stumbles upon it within 45 seconds… No technical knowledge required… Just watch this site…

One more perk from Da Gizz…

Da Gizz Does It Again: Scavenged Sacks Of Shite

August 6, 2011

What’s that“, you ask?

That’s an actual character called an ‘interrobang’. It’s used to denote a thought which asks in a most emphatic manner. Look it up. We like to think of it as the punctuational equivalent of “What the ‘bleep’?!?

In the case of Harwich Spirits Shoppe, the interrobang is a good introduction to Bruce’s latest idea — his so called ‘Scavenged Sacks Of Shite’ or SOSS. Here’s the way it works…

Da Gizz will rummage through the store and find collections of goods, and each collection will be worth at least $20 retail. He will (probably willy nilly) pick and choose a bunch of stuff and throw it in a bag or a box. For the purchaser this could be a boon or a bust. The bag (or box) might contain a nice old wine and a lottery ticket. Then again, it might hold a too-small tee-shirt, a hat, a couple of key chains and a piece of jewelry that you find ugly. Trust this cat; please trust this cat… You never know what you’re going to get! All you really know going into this deal is that it will be worth at least $20 whether you like it or not. And sometimes, the SOSS will be worth considerably more than $20.

The beauty of SOSS is the randomness of it. It’s summertime, and Da Gizz is busier than the proverbial one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest. Obviously, he’ll try not to leave anyone feeling ripped off, but his scavenging is going to be the traditional ‘Gibson Flurry’. When the smoke settles, not even Bruce is going to know what he’s done. This will be a true crap shoot.

Watch for signs at the store (and this blog) as to when the SOSS mayhem begins, and good luck to you…

See you by those happenstance racks,

P.S. Did or did not this cat warn you two days ago that the overall, long-term financial stability of this country is in deep doo doo? Tonight, S&P just lowered our credit rating from triple A to double A. So where does the world’s largest economy (which spends roughly $3 trillion/year, but only takes in $2 tn in revenue?) go for its missing moolah? We have little choice now but to borrow more at a higher rate of return, and tax. And read my lips… The taxes won’t just be on the millionaires and billionaires. Oh goody…
