New York Golf Center Holiday Sales Announced
Thanksgiving is this week which marks the official beginning of the holiday shopping season. The 2011 golf season is over but golfers have made their lists and checked it twice to see what they need for 2012. As the rush begins on Friday, golf stores have begin announcing their sales. The New York Golf Center wasted no time listing sales on their website but they also have one they are keeping a secret.
On the New York Golf Center website they announced sales on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday. Black Friday was "The Day" for holiday shopping when most retailers offer some of the largest discounts to draw people in. While Black Friday remains the most popular sales day of the year, Small Business Saturday, started by American Express, has gained significant traction and businesses are taking advantage of it. As you can see from the above image, the New York Golf Center is offering 20% off storewide purchases on both Friday and Saturday.
The Secret NYGC Sale
I mentioned above that the New York Golf Center is running a promotion they have not announced yet. It caters to both golfers in New York and all over the world. On Monday, November 21st, they are running a Cyber Monday Sale which entitles you to 20% off your online purchases. This isn't the secret but they won't be announcing it until later in the week.
Here is the sale they are not announcing: Since the Cyber Monday sale is only available online, the NYGC decided to get a little creative and use Social Media to help those in the store. If you're in their store on Cyber Monday you can check in on Foursquare and receive 20% off your entire purchase as though you were shopping online.
Next week I will post five articles featuring different gift ideas at various prices to help make shopping easier this season. I suggest keeping an eye out for businesses using Social Media, like Foursquare, Facebook, and Twitter, to offer a little something extra this holiday season. If I see it, I'll be sure to announce it!
