   Hello all, I'm A Corporate Merchandiser for Wegmans  & an Echo Baser.


I have a possible opportunity  for you all. While participating in the TRU midnight Madness here in Rochester Ny, I was approached by a Wegmans co-worker from our Marketing Department.


Wegmans is focusing on Star Wars for a huge corporate event 4/24-5/21. So This Co-worker wanted to know who she should contact to possible have costumed characters at some events  in our different stores.  I gave her links  to contact Ed (Reaper)  and or Katie (Hothgirl)


Wegmans has 66 Supermarkets in NY, PA, NJ, MD & DC. 


Here's  how this would work.


Wegmans Marketing will include links to contact Reaper & HothGirl in their promotional packets to the Store Managers & the Merchandise Managers.  It would be up to the Store & Merchandising managers , IF they choose  to do an event in their store location, to contact Reaper or HothGirl to be put in contact with the appropriate group to their location (Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse, Southern Tier, Erie, Williamsport, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, State College,  Allentown, New Jersey, Dulles, Fairfax & so on (You get the Idea)) .


From there It would be up to the local club to work out the details with that individual store. (time, place, recruiting table, compensation, etc...)


Now There's no guarantee that any store manager will be interested  enough to contact  Reaper or HothGirl but  we just  wanted to put   it out there for them as an opportunity to create a really  cool event  for their store.


 And Like Me, I figured most  E.B.'ers love anyexcuse  to get into thier Garb

We did 3 Wegmans events in 2 days and it was a lot of fun. Definitely made for a busy weekend though - but still fun.
