August 06, 2013 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA – Flip Flop Shops and REEF are teaming up this August to ship one lucky customer off to an exotic dream vacation of their choice.
Running August 1 through 29, while supplies last, the Golden Ticket Giveaway promotion is open to consumers at any of the Flip Flop Shops locations across the United States, Caribbean, and Guam who purchase a pair of REEF flip flops. Upon checking out, REEF customers will receive a golden scratch-off ticket that will reveal a guaranteed REEF prize or the grand prize of an $1,000 American Express gift card for an exotic dream vacation.
“This promotion with REEF is so perfect for August. We’re currently in the midst of our major, system-wide campaign called ‘the Heart To Sole: Creating A Stress-Free America’ that’s all about encouraging people to slow down, relax and reduce stress. There’s no better way to unwind than by jetting off to an exotic destination…for free,” said Brian Curin, the President and Co-Founder a.k.a. the Flip Flop Enthusiast (size 10) of Flip Flop Shops.
As part of the promotion, each Flip Flop Shops location will receive a promotional facelift, complete with in-shop posters and graphics on the shops’ flat screen televisions. In addition, Flip Flop Shops' unique and innovative "flip flop trees" will be exclusively dedicated to the REEF product line. Staff will also create further awareness for the promotion by wearing REEF flip flops and sandals.
“With all the great work Flip Flop Shops has been doing to reduce stress and improve heart health across the country, we thought joining together and offering a relaxing vacation was a great way to further encourage the ‘pace, not race’ message,” said Jeff Moore, the President (size 12) of REEF. “We can’t wait to see where our Golden Ticket winner will choose to go!”
Bursting onto the retail scene in 2004, Flip Flop Shops quickly became North America's first retail chain exclusive to the hottest brands and latest styles of flip flops and sandals from such leading brands as REEF, SANÜK, OluKai, Cobian, Quiksilver, ROXY, and Cushe, among others. Its mission: to provide the opportunity for anyone, in any climate, to Live…Work…Play With Their Toes Exposed® with the freedom of flip flops on their feet.
“We are stoked to be working with REEF again. I honestly couldn’t think of a better way to round-up flip flop season than hosting a promotion with one of the top action sports sandal companies in the world,” said Alan Woods, the COO and Co-Founder (size 11) of Flip Flops Shops.
Today, Flip Flop Shops has more than 85 locations operating throughout the United States, Canada, Guam, and the Caribbean, with 115-plus shops in the development pipeline.
