The Chicken, the Electric Toothbrush and Smashing

November 9, 2011

Why did the Chicken cross the road? Apparently he needed a new tennis skirt.

We here at Smashing Golf & Tennis are ALWAYS happy to get some press, especially when it is in our own home town. I’ve written before how it was easier to get into Golf Digest and Shape magazine then in our own little local paper. Well once again that lesson has been proved.

We are supporting local charities this month by donating 10% of our online and trunk show sales to Barrington Junior Women’s Club charities (use code BJWC75 and also get 20% off). This is a story that would seem like a no brainer for the local press.

We did get picked up by a bunch of the papers, which is great, but was a little curious on the section we were placed in one.

We were in the Frugal Finds section. Not a 100% sure we are the “frugal” brand, but hey, they were kind enough to mention our promotion, so was happy with that. Then I saw the article this morning, here is the snipet:

This week, Frugal Family scoured our local sources to come up with great deals for local families.

1. Whole uncooked chickens will be on sale Friday, Nov. 11 at Whole Foods Palatine for $1.29 per pound. 10 whole chickens per person limit.

Ok, must make a note to run to Whole Foods on Friday….

2. Shop online at Smashing Golf & Tennis now through Dec. 3 and 10 percent of the sale will go to Barrington Junior Women’s Club charities. Must use code BJWC75. Shoppers will also receive 20 percent off their purchase.

Wait, we are AFTER the chicken?!?!

3. Head to Learning Express Toys on Saturday, Nov. 12 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to decorate a plate for Christmas. The plate costs $7. Also, wear any Crazy Hat and receive 25 percent off one item.

Ok, if you send us a picture of placing your online order while wearing a crazy hat, we will send you a coupon for 20%. Because we competitor match

4. Sonicare e5300 Essence Electric Toothbrushes are on sale at Walgreens for $39.99

Oral care is SOOO important people…

So don’t forget to shop for all your tennis and golf fans on your holiday lists this month. 20% off and 10% to local charities with code BJWC75. Oh, and make sure you are wearing a crazy hat.
