"Anybody can enter, as often as they like...every week will feature a different size and style." - Ruth Rickey
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 07, 2012
All Crooked Brook chef jackets are made to order in the USA, however, they have various styles and sizes that were not made according to the customer’s specifications, or have slight imperfections. These are the men’s and women’s chef coats Ruth is giving away.
Crooked Brook chef jacket prices start at $85 and go up to well over $200, and with some of them that Ruth is giving away, there is absolutely nothing wrong other than it is not what the customer ordered.
Here are some examples; a size 16 chef jacket was made instead of a size 6, pocket placement on the left chest instead of the left shoulder sleeve or a red jacket with black piping was made instead of a black jacket with red piping.
“It’s a win-win situation for all parties involved. Anybody can enter, as often as they like,” said Ruth.
By sponsoring giveaways; Crooked Brook moves inventory that would otherwise sit on a shelf while increasing brand awareness, Ruth’s followers get a chance to win high quality chef coats, and SugarZen will experience increased traffic as the word spreads and more people enter the contest.
While offering specific sized chef coats may appear to be a negative, Ruth sees it as not much of an issue: “Don’t worry about the first coat being in size 8, every week will feature a different size and style. Patience is a zen-like virtue, after all. And “free” is worth coming to look in each week to see what is offered! You can always give these as a gift if they aren’t in your size.”
