As part of our grand opening celebration in July, we had six wonderful prizes in our store. Customers were encouraged to register to win one (or all) of these prizes. Galen got to draw the winners’ names, which was fun. But I got the best job! I contacted each of the winners, and arranged delivery for the prizes. It is always a wonderful experience to speak with customers, but chatting with folks from across the country, who remember their trip to Lehman’s with fondness, was a real treat.
One woman told me how her trip to Lehman’s was a tribute to her grandmother, who had recently passed away. Receiving her prize was a bright spot in the first holiday without her beloved grandmother.
Another mentioned he had family in the area and never missed a chance to stop by Lehman’s on his way through Ohio. We received thousands of entries, and some included requests for the catalog and/or to be added to our e-mail list. If you were one of these folks, you should be receiving information from us shortly.
Each prize was worth over $250 and included an electric skillet; cherry rocking horse; copper kettle; collector’s set of Case knives; limited edition oil lamp; and retro stand-up radio. Winners were from Florida, Ohio, Tennesee and Pennsylvania. Vist our web site, or watch for our next e-mail newsletter, for more information on our winners. Although I want you to know — every Lehman’s customer is a winner in my book.
Here is the Prize Winners Announcement.
Have a blessed holiday and a safe new year!
