Shoes 4 Soles! Special Request from Wendy this Saturday I would like to ask all of our friends and family, otherwise known as customers in other stores, to help me collect as many pairs of shoes from your closets to donate to the charitable organization, Soles4Souls. I am collecting them to drop off at my church,
Stevens Creek Church, this Sunday, March 27. We are hoping to collect as many shoes as possible and to even donate the shoes we walk into church wearing. These shoes will be distributed by Soles4Souls around the world to people who have none. These shoes will be greatly appreciated by many and I thank you for your help and donations. You can visit their website at soles4souls.org. or by clicking on their logo.
Wine Club: A Year Around Gift! The wines for March are ready for pickup! Give a unique gift that can be enjoyed throughout the year. Stay in front of your corporate clientele, reminding them of you monthly with our wine of the month selection, or tell a friend or family member you care, each and every month. Our memorable selections include hand- selected, unique wines from top quality wineries. Every month we review hundreds of selections and choose the very best in quality wine. Our selections are guaranteed to impress even the most discriminating connoisseur. Click here for sign-up form & details. Copy off the form and bring it to the store.
Stop in the CSRA's largest wine shop. The selection will shock and surprise you. With over 2300 brands in stock, you are sure to find a wine you have been looking for. If you can't find it here we will tell you where to find it or order it for you. No one in the CSRA has a larger selection of wine! We beat our competitors by having twice the brands to pick from. And pricing, well shop around and compare. We buy most of our wine in stock and pass the savings on to you. If you can get it less some where else, we will tell you where. On top of all this we take the mystery out of wine by having weekend tastings that you will not find in liquor stores. often our tastings are catered by local businesses and restaurants. We also have special in-house tastings with winemakers and vineyard owners plus wine dinners at local restaurants.
So bring in a friend and visit the best wine store in the CSRA. You will not be disappointed. Cheers! Roger Strohl Vineyard Wine Market Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: (706) 922-9463 Web: http://www.vineyardwinemarket.com
