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
