When we ended the semester in January, I believe we had had one delay, maybe one snow day...then the new semester started and the history books began to be rewritten.
At this point I have seen new students less than I haven't (have met with new student-employees 8 times, over 18 days)!! But, I'm happy to report that these new students have been working hard (when we have met), and are ready to reopen the store. Our hours will stay the same as they have been throughout the year, and the store will be open three days a week. The goal is to be open during the remainder of this year's home basketball games, and other other winter events like concerts, plays, and during parent-teacher conferences. Thanks for everyone's patience and understanding over these first few weeks; we hope you'll be able to make it in soon!
3rd Quarter Hours
Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays: 8am-4pm
Evening & Weekend openings, TBD
This Saturday, January 13th, Supernova (Linn-Mar's Invitational Show Choir competition) returns to Linn-Mar High School. You might be asking yourself, "why is this being posted on theROARstore blog"...because we are the official provider of apparel during this one-day, musical extravaganza!! Items can be purchased at theROARstore (located adjacent to the Main Gym-where performances will take place), and then they will be made to order utilizing a new production technique, similar to screenprinting. All shirts will be $15, and can be picked up following production.
theROARstore has created new committee member t-shirts for many of this year's volunteers, as well as the five t-shirts for show choir enthusiasts to pick from (see below); one which includes this year's NEW logo and all teams in attendance, plus four "Fun" music-themed tees.
Finally, theROARstore has contracted local screen printer, Cotton Gallery, to produce made to order "Top Finalists" t-shirts that can be ordered online and shipped to customers. Order forms will be available during and after Finals, and links will be posted in easy to find online locations.
Don't forget to stop by and cheer on 10th Street, In-Step and Hi-Style; they will be performing starting at 5:00 pm. **Because Linn-Mar is the host school, scores will not be tallied, and performances are merely for exhibition.
It's Back!! Our once a year sale, discounting everything in the store is coming up this Friday and Saturday!! And this year, hours have been expanded!!
**If you don't have your tickets for GITS yet, hurry, these shows commonly sell out!! linnmarchoirs.ticketleap.com/gits2018/
Needless to say, Homecoming Week was a huge success for theROARstore. We loved being a part of providing the Linn-Mar Community with apparel that they wear to show their school spirit. We had over 500 orders come in that were distributed by our students.
Recently we have had limited inventory and have been selling the styles and products ordered from last years group of students. Now with the start of a new school year and another set of innovative students, we have designed merchandise to sell in the store soon. The items have been ordered and will be in our store within the following weeks. We are beyond excited to refresh the inventory in our store and give our customers new styles to choose from. Below are photos of the incoming items!
We are excited to announce that theROARstore will be open this Saturday, September 22nd, from 9AM - 1PM. This is an exciting opportunity for those who cannot find time during their busy weekday schedules to make it into the store. It is also going to be the last chance to get your hands on a few items that are being phased out; once they're gone, they're gone for good, so don't let this opportunity go to waste. We hope to see you there this weekend! To fill the gaps that the departing items will leave in the store, we have a brand new batch of exciting products coming to the store soon. Stay in the know by following any/all of our social media pages!!
At the beginning of the quarter, theROARstore class met with many vendors to discuss potential partnerships and the production of new Linn-Mar branded apparel to sell in the store. This quarter theROARstore will be selling the Linn-Mar Homecoming apparel, which is available through order forms in the brick and mortar store, as well as online at http://tryinkshop.com/linnmar2018/shop/home. Open every Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, as well as Home games and other large home sporting events, our plan is to continue the tradition of excellence that theROARstore has become synonymous with. We look forward to an outstanding quarter, and overall a successful and amazing school year for all of the Linn-Mar community.
Throughout this quarter theROARstore class has met with a few reps looking for new and in-style products to potentially have in the fall for the beginning of 18-19 school year. Even though we have not came out with many new products this spring, we did begin seling sworts, sweatpants cut into shorts which are both affordable and comfortable. As the school year is coming to a close, so is the brick-and-mortor store for the 17-18 school year. If you're worried about missing out on buying new Linn-Mar apparel over the summer, our online store will be available to purchase new products all summer long.
Once school registration starts up in early August, theROARstore will re-open for the next school year. Two things that theROARstore plans to do in the fall is start selling school supplies making it convenient for students if they need something during the school day. Also, theROARstore is planning on paying for the Academic Assembly awards which takes place in September honoring students with excellent academic success.
Next week, April 29- May 5, is National Small Business week. theROARstore will be celebrating by having a 10% discount off of all merchandise, on select days. The store will be open May 2-4, from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. On Wednesday red items will be on sale, Thursday will be white/gray, and on Friday, all black items will be discounted.
Fourth quarter is here and we are working on potentially getting some new merchandise for spring like sworts and we are already getting a head start on things to come this fall. This includes looking into new merchandise for football games and even potentially adding school supplies to products that can be sold in the brick and mortar store.
And, we're excited to see, that enrollment for theROARstore has exceeded its numbers from the previous years and this is the first year that we have been open all four quarters, instead of three quarters in the past years.
In theROARstore there are many new features; with a new look in the store and many new arrivals. The store have been constantly making improvements with students always looking for the best way to give out the best personal experience for each and every customer. Employees are currently looking for some new merchandise to start off the spring season right; this includes a vest, a lightweight quarter zip jacket, a women's full zip white jacket and a women's black crew neck. There are also new joggers to for those who enjoy wearing pants on a brisk spring day. The employees of the store look forward to the new season and are excited to see what the new merchandise and season bring to the store.
