In the couple of years since I first starting serving here at Ty’s Toy Box as your intrepid Toy Box Mommy, the powers that be have asked me several times what moms want out the kinds of retailers who offer the toys and licensed goods that our kids want.
“More deals,” I always answer. “We want it cheaper. How about free? Free would be good.”
“Mmmmm,” they usually respond. And then they stop asking me. I have no idea why. I mean, I think free is a totally viable retail strategy. Which is possibly why I am a blogger and not a CEO. Details.
But guess what. Go on, guess! They finally did it! Well, not free, but darn close to it. Ty’s has decided to regularly feature one unbelievably low-priced item every single day. Each and every day you’ll have the chance to grab one fabulous item for a ridiculously low price, which is pretty much my idea of bargain nirvana, right there.
To find it, just go to the Ty’s Toy Box home page and look for the above Treasure Hunt picture in the right-hand column, there. Click on the graphic to see the featured rock-bottom item of the day.
There’s just one teensy, itty-bitty little problem. It’s hardly even a problem, really. But… well, right now they’re calling it “Ty’s Treasure Hunt.” And while we all sort of agree that that’s pretty lame, another—cooler, hipper, enticing—name is not yet forthcoming. We may have used up all our coolness just getting this deal in place. And that’s where you come in.
Now through 11:59 pm on Friday, November 16th, 2007, you are invited to leave a comment on this post suggesting a better name for this one-discount-a-day feature here at Ty’s. The winning suggestion will be turned into the new feature title, and the brilliant person who suggested it will be gifted with her choice of any single DVD carried at Ty’s Toy Box.
You have nothing to lose, and possible a free DVD to gain. So put on your thinking cap and start those creative juices flowing. Hit us with your ideas. Go!
