In These Hard Economic Times…

Sep 22, 2011

I am very much aware of these trying, economic times. It seems like prices on everything just keep going up and up! So, I’ve thought long and hard about what we can do at That Store to help our customers. The first thing that I came up with is to lower prices on some of your (and mine) favorite brands. The prices of Anavini, Morgan & Milo, Clarie & Charlie, and Vive La Fete just to name a few have all been lowered!

I searched high and low to find precious new brands at reasonable prices. Mud Pie, ToeBlooms, Blue Juniper, Fireflies & Fairytales, and Jelly the Pug are just a few.

The third plan I put into place was to increase the number of ways to save at That Store. The tradional coupons in the Dothan  Eagle can still be found, but we have added coupons on www.dothaneagle.com!

If you are on our email list, we will email you coupons and store specials. At one point, you had to print them and bring the coupon with you into That Store. But, to make it easier, you can now just show us your phone in order to use the coupons. If you’re not on our email list, the sign up lists are by each register.

You can also receive a text from us, either a coupon or a store special. Again, you can show us your phone for the discount. For these mobile coupons, text “ThatStore” to 82672 if you live in or around Dothan. If you live outside our area, text “ShopThatStore” to 82672 to sign up.

Several times a year, you will receive a mail-out that has coupons to use in our store.

And lastly, I’ve stepped up our Facebook presence. “Like” us on Facebook so you will be in-the-know about store specials and coupons! By all means, tell all your friends to like our page too. When we hit 3,000 likes, we’ll give 30% off our entire store both in-store and www.shopthatstore.com!

And finally, my favorite, the Customer Loyalty Program! When you check out, be sure to ask for your card. Once you fill it up, enjoy a FREE Gift Card to That Store! We’ve already had several customers receive their free That Store gift cards!

I appreciate our customers both locally and at www.shopthatstore.com! You have voted That Store the best children’s store for 8 years in a row. Now it’s my turn to give back and give our customers a helping hand.

Precious Toeblooms…now at That Store!

Sep 14, 2011

Let me start out by saying that nothing is cuter to me than the little toes of newborns! I have been known to take pictures of only their toes on occasion. In fact, even though Jack is now a toddler, I still every once in a while have to take a picture of his little feet.

One of our favorite customers came into That Store the other day and her little baby girl had on the most precious little flower shoes.  She said a friend from Texas gave them to her. I had never seen anything like them! I’ve been buying for That Store for 8 years now, so I get excited when I see a new and different brand! I fell in love with them and  knew all of our other customers would love to have a pair too. The shoes are called “ToeBlooms” and they come in two different styles. One style is similar to a flip flop. It has a loop on the end that hooks around that precious big toe. The other style is a wrap around. Socks can even be worn with the wrap arounds. Great for the cooler months! I can just see Wendy Jones photographing those newborn baby girls curled up with beautiful flowers on their toes! Too precious. This is one of the products that makes you say, “Now why didn’t I think of that!”. Maybe I will work on an style for little boys!

The ToeBlooms are not on our website quite yet. But, give us a call, and we can ship them to you!

ToeBloom Sweetheart. These pink Blooming Wraps are a must-have accessory for your little sweetheart! They are sure to add the finishing touch to your little ones outfit!

Talk about an eye catcher! These bright pink Blooming Toes will be sure to attract attention. A perfect addition to your little ones most darling outfits!

Things Are A Changing…

Sep 9, 2011

When I was younger, I didn’t like for things to change. It really didn’t matter what was changing: the seasons, school starting back, or daylight savings time. Whatever it was, change made me a little uneasy! But now as I get older, a little change is good now and then!

All three of my children have now started back to school. We are knee deep in cheerleading and teenage girls going in and out of our house. And Jack is busy adapting going to school everyday, whether he wants to or not!

My mother’s passing resently has brought about many changes too. Our family lost its anchor and leader. Living life without her will be a huge change that I will struggle to accept. Some changes like this are ones that hurt deep down into your soul.

On a lighter note, That Store is changing too. I am looking into updating our website! I’m thinking brighter colors, a new logo and cool graphics.  Any ideas on this are welcome!

I can’t leave out our Dothan store! We’ve added several fabulous brands like  Jelly the Pug, Blue Juniper, and Mud Pie! Everyone loves them and their prices! Each have been selling well.   

Life lesson: change can be good and the ones that hurt too much will hopefully feel better over time.
