“Can I help ANYONE with ANYTHING?!”

September 29, 2009

Thank-you to everyone who made Mama Goose’s Third Annual Coat Sale so memorable.

Kelly and the geese.

We were pumped for the sale after a long month of preparing, planning, scheduling…. And then, two days of last minute shopping, scheduling, pricing, and more planning! Late nights didn’t harm our spirits though. At one point, new hire, Alisha, undaunted by the sea of elbow-to-elbow shoppers,  jumped up on a bench and yelled to the crowd, “Can I help Anyone with Anything?!”

We’ve all gone to large sales and immediately wished we hadn’t. Either the crowds were awful, or the store was so messy it was impossible to find anything, including staff. Not at the coat sale. The Geese were eager to help and easy to find in our team shirts! Families smiled, laughed, and showed off new coats and costumes as they made their way to the Wheel of Savings.

What a great way to kick off the season, with community and thrifty purchases. Of course, we were blessed with the sweetest weather, so that even when the late afternoon showers moved us inside, the crowds had thinned out leaving plenty of room for exploring the racks.

We know that for a lot of you our Coat Sale extravaganza was just the wake-up call you needed to get you to your storage bins to take stock of your coats and boots. No worries. The Geese will continue to buy outerwear all season and look forward to seeing you in the next couple of weeks.
