CarpentreeLogoResized-webCarpentree will hold a drawing for free product with a $500 retail value at the International Christian Retail Show (ICRS), running June 22-25 in Atlanta. To qualify, buyers on the show floor who have placed an order at the show can tape a one-minute video testimonial for Carpentree products. Store testimonials will be featured in future email blasts and web vignettes.

“The drawing will be held on Wednesday at 2:45, so the store will know by the end of the show if they have won,” said Sherry Morris, marketing manager. “We want to hear how our products make a difference for independent bookstores and/or how our products minister in the lives of others. Carpentree has served independent bookstore customers with Christian art and gifts since 1976. We think this will be a fun venue to hear from some of our longtime customers and offer them the possibility of something exciting in return.”

National Sales Director Jordan Hobson said the company is “pleased to be able to bless both new and loyal customers with products from Carpentree.”

In addition to the video testimonials contest, Carpentree will offer daily drawings for free gifts at 11 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. Monday and Tuesday and at 11 a.m. Wednesday. The company also will give a free gift valued at $24.99 to the first 35 stores who place orders at the show.

“Stores don't want to miss the opportunity to see great product merchandising in our show booth,” added Bill Fowler, director of business development. “There will be tips and tricks that you can use to give your store a boutique look and great shopping vibe.”

The company also will provide photos and tips via email and Facebook to help stores merchandise new fashion accessories, including scarves, totes and shoulder bags, as well as glassware, tabletop ceramics and giftable photo magnets.
