Peebles shoppers pack doors at opening
Crowds lined up to enter the new Peebles family style clothing store that opened Thursday in Greencastle. Mayor Sue Murray and other city officials were on hand to welcome the new facility.
Regional Manager David Ester and Store Manager Jim Tucker thanked the crowd for coming and talked about how excited the store is to be opening in Greencastle.
"This is such a great community to be in and with the best workforce we've ever seen," said Tucker.
Peebles offers brands like Adidas, Keds, VanHeusen, Nike, Liz Claiborne, Rafaella, Mudd, Lee, Dickies, Haggar, SagHarbor, Tommy Hilfiger and others. The store has departments for misses, juniors, men's, children's, shoes, fragrances, accessories and home accents.
The store offers an exclusive discount program for customers age 50 and over. These customers can sign up to receive e-mail alerts for upcoming sales and events. The store also offers customers access to a store-branded credit card and VIP Rewards Program, which offers invitations to exclusive savings events, free gift-wrapping and more, based on annual credit card purchases. Cardholders also receive bonus savings coupons via mail.
"Those opening a Peebles Charge account will receive no less than 10 percent off purchases," added Tucker.
