3 Tips for VICTORY at the Smith and Edwards Toy Sale
What do we mean by "victory"? Well, the top toys sell out fast, and you want to be sure and get the toys your kids will love. There's nothing more satisfying than getting the toys your children want at a great price! You'll walk out the doors with amazing toys and a huge smile on your face because you did so well at the Toy Sale.
Vickie, our Toys & Housewares buyer, offered some advice she'd give for first-timers hoping to have a great time at a Toy Sale. Hardware buyer Blaine offered tips, too - together they've watched thousands of excited, savvy shoppers run down the aisles of our Toy Sales, and they know how to make it a great experience.
1. Prepare - and be early! Watch for our toy lists so you can go straight to the toys you're shopping for.
While we have thousands of toys at each Toy Sale, the most popular ones disappear fast, so if you want a specific toy from the toy list, plan ahead so you can head straight for it Monday morning without distractions.
Our doors open at 9am, but we've seen people lined up much, much earlier than that. Plan to be here early. You can even bring a chair and meet some new friends in line before the Toy Sale starts!
Here's a bonus hint: Watch our Facebook page - in 2013, we a $50 Gift Card to Smith & Edwards PLUS first place in line for you & a friend for each Toy Sale! This year, who knows what fun giveaways & prizes we've got in store.... Click here to "LIKE" our Facebook Page!
2. Shop Ahead! It feels amazing to get your Christmas shopping done early! Sure, you might be getting great deals on toys for the holidays. But these aren't Christmas-only toys - I bet you can get great deals on toys they'll love the whole year, for birthdays and more.
This is a great way to get name-brand toys for every boy and girl on your list - especially if your children have lots of cousins and friends. You'll be prepared for Christmas and beyond with a little help from us at Smith & Edwards :)
And by the way - if it looks like we're out of a certain toy, feel free to ask us for help. Oftentimes shoppers will take toys to the register, but they'll only keep some of them. We'll be running more toys back to the Toy Sale tables all morning to help you get the toys you want!
3. Come with your friends! Arrange for someone to watch the kids while you bring your friends to go Toy Sale shopping with you. Leave the kids at home, because you don't want to worry about a stroller or collecting the kids when you check out (or them seeing their presents!). So having a girls-day-out-shopping will make the sale a big adventure. Not only is there safety in numbers - it's a lot more fun, too!
You can combine your friends' shopping lists with yours, or you can divide and conquer - you'll have a ton of fun together, and you'll all have a great experience to talk about afterward.
So get ready for lots of fun! Plan on coming and enjoying a morning of scoring great toys your kids will love. It's really spectacular - you've gotta be here!
And while you might have heard scary rumors... our Toy Sales are typically pretty tame. Promise! It can get crowded, but everyone's here to have a good time and get great toys for our kids, so you don't need to bring knee pads or elbow pads. Just plan on a nice morning of great deals and great savings!
