21st Annual Halloween Sale
In a tough economy, it takes extreme discounts to get the public to spend their limited hard earned money. So if a sale is really a sale, our customers will come ....and that is just what they did on Tuesday, October 30, 2012. It started early Tuesday morning, people began to line up in front of the store to be the first in line! This tradition of the "Halloween Sale" has grown over the past 20 years to become an event that customers start asking about in mid-summer. Even in these trying economic times and enduring the chilly weather, our customers stood in line to take advantage of the deep discounts on everything in the store. To marvel in the Halloween spirit, the Player's Bench staff and many customers dressed up in Halloween cosumes. If you wish to get information on our sales, specials, or coupons, stop by or e-mail us at email@example.com for information. See ya next year!
