Final Clue for Hunt in the 216!

25 Nov

Here it is…  The final clue for the first ever DU Hunt in the 216!

In the heart of downtown this time I will stay,
On this glorious, victorious, final clue day.
To a street formerly known as Sheriff I will go,
And find a place that sells a “crush”, and the stuff we call Joe.

Then I’m gonna book it to DU and win!

Remember, the first person to relay the message on the puzzle pieces wins $100 gift card, and gets to name a piece from the DU S12 line, and get that piece in his or her size when the line is released.  No phone calls, you must be here in person to win…

Also, anyone that comes in with the completed message after the winner gets 20% their entire purchase at the DU today!

The city of Cleveland was also kind enough to offer free metered parking downtown today in honor of the release of today’s final clue!

Good luck and Happy Hunting!!!

American Made

It’s rare that background stories from the factory make it to the retail floor. This is one that has to be shared…

Our factory was running late on the second delivery of our Dredgers Union womens line. They knew we had set a date for our “Fall Collection Release Open House”, but were still having trouble making the deadline, given the days that shipping would add.

So they personally drove the balance from Chicago to our store last night.

Try getting that done overseas.
