August 2014 News
Dog Days of Summer: Up to 20% Off
In August, we’re celebrating pets. Stop by with your pet and meet us in person – or show us a photo of your favorite animal companion (real, stuffed or imaginary) - and you’ll receive 10% off an animal-related book in August.
We’ll have a display of pet-related items in our window honoring our beloved animal friends in early August. Remember to bring in Fido, Fluffy or Fang (or a photo) for your discount any time in August.
Even better, share a photo of yourself or someone in your family reading to your pet companion for our website & social media use in August, and we’ll give you an additional 10% off an animal-related book, bringing your total discount to 20%!
Email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
