“It’s an awesome giveaway that keeps people talking about it for weeks.”
Dallas, Texas (Vocus/PRWEB) November 12, 2010
Getting traffic into a retail store can be a challenge – even at Christmas. Many stores have found a sweepstakes or drawing will attract extra attention.
One of the most popular programs is The Giant Christmas Stocking promotion from Bagwell Promotions . The program comes with the stocking filled with toys along with entry blanks, a registration box, colorful posters to promote the contest and a press release packet.
According to John Bagwell, President of Bagwell Promotions, “We’ve used this program for just about every possible retail establishment including car dealers, furniture stores, check cashing stores, banks and credit unions, restaurants and rent-to-own stores. In fact, just about any business that has, or wants family traffic, can use this promotion,” Bagwell added.
Arctic Nite Bowling Center at Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska has used the program for a number of years. “The kids love it,” says Donna Ferrell, who handles recreation of the Center. “It’s an awesome giveaway that keeps people talking about it for weeks,” she adds.
A lot of family restaurants purchase the stocking every year and place it at the front of the restaurant. “It’s a great way for the restaurant manager to keep the kids occupied while customers are waiting to be seated by the hosting staff,” adds Bagwell.
The Giant Christmas Stocking is available in a 6 foot version and “The World’s Largest Christmas Stocking” as an 8 foot stocking.
“Typically almost 80 percent of our customers reorder each year, claims Bagwell, “but we have also seen an increase in companies who are using the promotion for the first time.”
Bagwell is also able to drop-ship the stockings to individual store locations. “It’s not unusual for us to ship to 50 or 60 locations,” says Bagwell.
