Only one can be the mayor of The SkidShop

Just an FYI folks..you may want to start checking into The SkidShop using Foursquare.  Why do you ask?  Well the person who checks in the most has the distinct honor of being the mayor of The SkidShop.  That’s why.  Plus, who knows what kind of privileges you might get for being the mayor.

I slid into work today. Icy Monday.

First off, I wanted to say I was pretty psyched to see this article in this weeks SkidNews about the Skidshop.  I mean…who doesn’t like to hear positive feedback?  Right?  So anyways…obviously it was nice to read this and it made my rainy/sleety/slippery Monday much better.

Since I have you here, I also wanted to let all of you graduating Seniors know that if you want to purchase a Skidmore Class Ring…you should do this week.  More specifically this Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 5pm and 7pm.  The reason being is the rings go on sale and you can save a lot of money.  Depending on which type of metal you pick, you can save up to $200.  If you have questions, please stop into the shop on the days I listed and see me.  I’m located in the back of the SkidShop.  I’m the one with the blank stare on my face and usually listening to Superchunk.


You’re graduating this Spring?

Well if you plan on walking across the stage this spring..you’re gonna need a cap and gown.  Doesn’t matter how good you look in that suit you got at Bonobos in NYC.  You still need a cap and gown in order to walk across that stage and shake the hand of President Glotzbach.  Your order deadline is March 25.  And if for some crazy reason you can’t seem to get it all together..then a representative from Jostens will be here on March 23 and March 24 to help you get your cap and gown order set up.  Or just take the initiative and order it on your own by clicking here.

Save 25% on anything in the store that is red or pink!

Looking for that perfect gift for your honey bunny?  But you’re short on cash.  We have a great solution for you.  Tomorrow…and tomorrow only, anything in the SkidShop that is pink or red will be 25% off.  Jackets, shirts, pants, Jansport backpacks…you name it.  If it’s red or pink…you get 25% off.  Then take that money you saved and take that special person out to dinner to Max London’s or Chipotle.  And just to really mix things up..our old friend Forrest will be here to give you unconditional love.

This is an in-store promotion only.

A great prize valued at $400.  But here’s the deal…..you have to beat The Skidmore Golf Team.  And I’m sure you may have heard some rumors about a driving range INSIDE The Skidshop.  Those rumors are indeed true.  Stop in tonight after 5pm and check it out.  Skidmore Golf Head Coach David Bakyta will be giving free lessons.

We will also have the good folks from FIVE GUYS BURGERS AND FRIES here and we have a sweet deal on Skidmore nalgenes.  Buy a 32oz nalgene..and get a 16oz nalgene for free.

One more thing….just so there’s no confusion….I am NOT leaving Skidmore.  You guys are gonna have to look at me and my wrinkle free shirts for another 20 plus years.  Sorry.  But if there is any chance someone wants to throw me a “He’s staying” party….I’d like to be the first to RSVP.

Next Week….be here!!!

FIVE GUYS BURGERS AND FRIES will be here handing out lot’s of great goodies to anyone who’s at The SkidShop between 5pm and 7pm.

Buy a 32oz Nalgene and get a 16oz Nalgene for free!!  If my math is correct, which it is 83% of the time…….that’s 48 ounces of delicious liquids.

We will have live music from Sime Gezus and Lift Every Voice.  DJ Kirsten and DJ George will be here to provide the evenings soundtrack.  Yours truly will be getting jiggy with it…..did I just give away my age by saying “getting jiggy with it”?  Do people still say this phrase?

FREE FOOD from 7pm to 11pm provided by the great folks over at Dining Services and Quandts.  I’ve got my fingers crossed for those little quiches.  WHAT?!  I like quiches.
