If you are from a non-metropolitan area in the Midwest, (like me) it is likely you already know that Runnings is a retail store providing a variety of resources from farm and livestock equipment and supplies, hunting and fishing equipment, housewares, automotive goods, plumbing, electrical, clothing, footwear, hardware, lawn and garden supplies, paint, pet supplies, sporting goods, and tools.
What you might not know is that after 64 years in business, the company decided it was time to take their marketing to the next level and have more ‘fun’ with their communications efforts, according to Dennis Jensen, Marketing Manager.
“Time to take marketing to the next level and have more fun”
If you’re like me and love the convenience, before I head out the door I do a little shopping research online. This saves me from running all over town to get everything on my lists, and www.myrunnings.com definitely will give you helpful and up-to-date product and sales information so you can plan your shopping trip wisely!
On their site you can download and view the Current Sales Flyer or check out their Online End Cap, featuring the latest promotions on products found in their stores. If you’re like me and love buying gift cards for hard to buy for loved ones far from home, you can also purchase them on the site.
So what about the ‘FUN’ I mentioned happening at Runnings? Join their Facebook Page and you’ll find out! Can you guess how many hotdogs they sold last week during their customer appreciation days throughout all 31 locations? My guess is 44,444 (my lucky number is 4). Guess correctly and you win a $10 gift card. I know my kids would love it if I took them shopping in the toy! I understand the next contest involves your pet, so don’t miss out on some lively competition. Have fun with Runnings this year and let us know if you are a lucky winner!
Welcome, Runnings to the VI Community and here’s to a great year in your business!
