All week, every ice cream and video rental or purchase will earn customers a contest ticket. Contest winners will receive generous amounts of store credit and/or other prizes, and multiple tickets can be saved up over the course of the week, so buy early and buy often! We'll also be running a challenge to get 300 "Likes" on our Facebook page from our Facebook-using customers. If the page gets 300 or more "Likes" by Sunday, 6/30, we'll give all of our customers 20% off of ice cream and video prices for a whole day. Last but not least, we'll also be unveiling a new, permanent set of daily video rental promotions. Below are additional events for the week:
Monday, 6/24: Costume Day. Come to Jet dressed as a movie or TV character to have your picture taken and to be entered into a contest for a Jet Video gift certificate. Our staff will review all entries and pick a winner by the end of the week, and we'll also hang up your picture in the store (and on-line too, if participants don't mind).
Tuesday, 6/25: Buy 1, Get 1 Free DVD sale. Jet's been building up quite a lot of extra DVDs over the past few months, and now's your chance to get in on that action. Buy a DVD and get one free!
Wednesday, 6/26: Treasure Chest Day. Every item purchased earns you a selection from Jet's treasure chest of toys!
Thursday, 6/27: All-Ages Movie Trivia Night with Black Cat Coffee. From 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM, Jet will be partnering with the soon-to-open Black Cat Coffee, located a few doors down, where Good Eats Bakery used to be, to host an all-ages trivia night. Register ASAP at the store or over the phone or e-mail to be a contestant, or RSVP to ensure yourself a spot in the audience! All contestants will earn prizes, with winning contestants getting the best ones. Refreshments will be provided.
Friday, 6/28: Souvenir Cup Day. We've had an order of Jet Video tumblers printed up from Ethix Merch, a non-sweatshop merchandise company, and we'll be offering them free with the purchase of a milkshake, float, or our new frozen fruit smoothies. (You'll also be able to purchase them on their own for a few dollars.)
Saturday, 6/29: Face painting from 3-5 and Jet Video magnet giveaway from 6-9.
Sunday, 6/30: Ticket contest winners announced, 300 Facebook likes contest reward (we hope?)
*In January 2013, Jet Video became a worker cooperative, one of very few businesses of this type in Maine. Regular employees of the company share in the duty of managing the store collectively, and invitations to buy shares of company stock are extended to qualifying workers who've worked at the business for a certain length of time. See the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives' web site here for more information on worker cooperatives.
