A few days ago, I was invited to take part in previewing an event for a new AJ Wright store opening in Paterson, NJ. An offer to combine shopping and blogging? How could I resist?!
The challenge? How much could I buy for $100 at AJ Wright?
The journey began when they sent a car for us:
The car and our driver, Ralph. There’s a sign in the window that says, “Ms. Stacey”.
I enjoyed the ride:
We arrived at the store:
There we were met by Ashley and Keri, the friendly PR folks! Here’s a photo of Ashley and I:
They made us feel right at home, and even fed us delicious food, catered by a local restaurant.
We also received a goody bag, which included a snappy (purple!) Sony Webbie camera (woohoo!), a pad and pen to take notes, a calculator to tally our loot, and a $100 gift card (not in the photo, cuz, of course, I spent it!)!
Tim was such a trooper, they also gave him a $50 gift card! Thank you again, guys!
I have to say, I was immediately impressed with the layout of the store. You can pretty much stand anywhere and see where everything is (convenient, yes?). The signage is up nice and high, the store is brightly lit, and the aisles are wide enough to get a cart/stroller/wheelchair through without a fight. Love it! And, ladies, this is one of the best parts: the handbags are arranged by color! How awesome is that?!
As if that weren’t enough, each item has the price marked right on it!! I didn’t think anyone did that anymore!
Yes, these are Gloria Vanderbilt jeans for $9.99!!
I had a lot of fun shopping–especially with no guilt about the money I was spending!
Tim appreciated the way the men’s department was set up. Apparently, guys like to be able to see things at a glance, so, having the clothing hanging on the wall is a big plus for them.
So, how did we do?
Tune in tomorrow to see how Real World Mom–and Tim–spent $150 at AJ Wright!
