We’ve been snowed in since yesterday in Manchester where we’ve had at least 8″. We haven’t been able to ship online orders and we’ve had to shut our Manchester shop too.
Conditions have worsened overnight and the roads are treacherous.
There’s nothing worse for a shop than not being able to sell, so we thought we’d have a bit of fun and hopefully encourage you to do a bit of shopping.
We want you to get outside with a rule or tape measure and take a picture of yourself showing us just how deep your snow is. Then we’ll give you a discount on the cost of an order you place this week based on the depth of the snow in your area.
We’ll give you the number of inches you can measure as a percentage of your order – up to a total of 10%!
For instance, send us a snap showing 3 inches of snow, and we’ll send you a voucher for 3% off your order, send us one of 8 inches, and we’ll send you a voucher worth 8% off! To keep it simple, there’s no minimum spend required. All we ask is you use the voucher this week.
We’ll put the photos up on our blog and our facebook page and we’ll throw in a few random prizes too for the most imaginative and fun photos!
Then we hope to have lots of orders to pack when the snow starts to clear and we can get back into the warehouse – hopefully tomorrow.
To get things going, here’s a photograph of me measuring the snow here in Manchester. It was 7 inches deep!
So, what are you waiting for? Get your hat and gloves on, get a rule or tape measure, and get snapping! Send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line How Deep Is Your Snow.
If you haven’t got a digital camera, or don’t know how to email photos, don’t worry, you won’t be left out. Just send us an email telling us how we can improve The Alcohol-Free Shop and we’ll send you a voucher worth 5% off your next order placed this week.
Stay safe, keep warm and have fun!
