The Deal

This whole Ditch Amazon Day has been interesting, to say the least. We have received much more publicity about it than I ever thought (booksellers like to share news, especially of bold moves against The Man). There have been some flubs. One news outlet listed the wrong store in their article. Another just listed that we are asking people to bring in proof that they bought something from Amazon to get the discount. So I thought I would take this opportunity to make things as clear as possible:

On Saturday, December 10th, from 10am - 7pm, bring in proof that you have CLOSED your account, and we will give you 15% off one purchase and a $5 gift certificate to be used another day. This discount on only good on items currently in the store and does not combine with other discounts.

When you close an account on Amazon, you get a final email that politely thanks you for closing it. Print that out and bring it in. Pretty simple. We, and retailers in McMinnville, Oregon and beyond thank you!
