SLMOT 2010 Spring Super Sale Review

We are so pleased to have completed another successful Super Sale! The sale was held on Saturday, May 15th from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Reams in Sandy.

We need to especially thank our Super Sale organizers, Cindy and Natalie. They put in hours planning the sale, contacting sellers, advertising the sale, and making arrangements for the location and equipment. They make a great team.

We also want to thank all the volunteers from our club that came to help. We had lots of volunteers helping set up, monitor for shoplifters, cashiering, and answering questions.

And thank you to Melody and Stacy for providing yummy food for the bake sale.

Finally, thank you to our sellers without whom we wouldn’t have a sale! Many of our sellers doubled as volunteers and stayed for the entire sale.

This sale was our first with a new large-group format. All sellers combined items into designated areas for each type of item. Because this was our first time using this format, we have developed a survey to help us review participants’ experience. Please help by completing this survey:
