In such a stinky economy, retailers are trying to make money however they can.

Now Ashely Stewart Stores has indicated that they will host  a special “Celebrating History” event on Monday, January 19, 2009.

Ashley Stewart will mark Prez-elect Obama’s inauguration by

  • offering customers a 15% discount off of their entire purchase
  • providing customers with “Yes We Can” t-shirts for $10.00 at all 218 locations.
  • providing music and entertainment in stores and light refreshments at select locations in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Chicago, DC/Baltimore, and Maryland,
  • distributing “Yes We Can” pins as a free gift with purchase for customers shopping in stores on that day

Go on into Ashley Stewart and get some free stuff.

The retailer will also be donating 5% of proceeds from the day’s sales to a scholarship fund for students at Howard University (my alma mater!!!)  in Washington, DC.

That’s when he announced the launch of the “Black and White Ball” Scholarship.
