For the fifth year in a row, Skaff has held our Save and Share event. This year’s format was a little different, a four day event, and we added a new charity partner to the list. The result was tremendous.
We invited our customers to visit the store and take advantage of savings on furniture and flooring, the SAVE part of the weekend. We spent the weeks leading up to the promotion working with our manufacturers for our best deals. So when people showed up on the Save and Share weekend, and they arrived in record numbers, we were ready.
We also arranged for fun give aways, including a quality travel mug for everyone who stopped by, and chances to win a recliner a new Serta mattress, a room full of carpet, gift certificates and more. It was a carnival atmosphere all weekend.
The result was a great weekend for our customers and our company, but it doesn’t stop there. The Skaff family committed to donate 5% of every sale to our charity partners: Carriage Town Ministries, Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, Whaley Children’s Center and Communities First, Inc. This is the SHARE part of the weekend. The good news is we wrote checks totaling $20,000.00 that stays right in our community and goes directly to work to make life better for a lot of people.
We want to thank our charity partners for allowing us to work with them, and to our vendors and staff who worked so hard to make this a success. And of course to all of our customers, new and old, who showed up to Save and Share.
