The Grand Prize winner will be contacted on June 9 and all entrants will receive a coupon via email to take 25% off their entire order.
Kiefer, the Midwestern-based swimming supply company, began offering contests in June of 2010 as a fun way to initiate a dialog with its online customers. According to Kiefer's website manager Kelli Steenrod, "When shopping online people are not looking to interact. They want to place their order and move on. While we value technology and encourage customers to take advantage of the estore we don't want to sacrifice customer relations. These contests are one way of keeping in touch with our online customers – letting them know we value their ideas."
A link to the contest and the official rules will be available on http://www.kiefer.com as of May 23, 2011.
