Gordmans Holiday Gift Card Event

                                                                                                  Holiday 2014
 
 
Dear Community Partner,
 
Are you looking for ways to reward your employees, or wondering what to give your staff for the holidays for a job well done all year?  Gordmans may have the answer.
 
Your Fenton Gordmans would like you to know that we have gift cards available for businesses and schools, to use as gifts for the holidays, or associate incentives/prizes.  Gordmans gift cards are non-denominational, meaning you can choose the amount on each card that best fits your needs.
 
At Gordmans, we carry a full line of name brand apparel, accessories and shoes for the family and one of the most unique assortments of home fashions you’ll find anywhere!  You will find all the brand names that you see in the department stores, but the difference is our everyday low prices are up to 60% off their prices every day!  If you already know what Gordmans is all about but haven’t visited in a while, you’ll want to stop by and check out all the new arrivals.  We’re located at 687 Gravois Bluffs Blvd., in the Gravois Bluffs Shopping Center near Walmart.
 
We also offer discounts on large gift card purchases (5% off purchase between $500 to $999 and 10% off purchase of $1,000 or more).   So stop by and visit me, send me an email, or give me a call and let me know if I can help with any gift card needs you might have.  My e-mail address is brandon.mckinnon@gordmans.com and my phone number is 636-326-5586.
As community partners in the area, I welcome the opportunity to get to know you better and look forward to visiting with you or talking with you on the phone.
 
Respectfully,
 
Brandon McKinnon
Store Manager
