Happy New Year Hoppin Bobbin E News


What a year 2015 was!  I am looking forward to all that 2016 has to offer.  It brings some great changes to Hoppin Bobbin.  First was our new website, then, this week we integrated our website with our new POS system.  Boy, that was fun, (NOT).  Please be patient with us while we learn this new system and try to work out all of the kinks.  We are looking forward to the possibilities that this integration opens up for us and how it will make things more convenient for our customers.  We will keep you posted!
I hope that all of you had a wonderful Christmas and a fabulous New Year!  I'm so excited about 2016, stay tuned!   -Kelly

New Rewards Program
2015 was the last year that Hoppin Bobbin will participate in the Charm Program.  While the Charms have been fun for all of us, we have customers that have collected all of the charms, every month for the last 5 years. That, is a lot of charms!   Keeping our customers in mind, we still wanted a way to say thank you to all of our customers who shop with us.  In 2016, we start our new rewards program.  This program accrues rewards for you, with every purchase.  At the bottom of your receipt, you will see a note that tells you how many more points you need before you receive a reward or a coupon with the reward amount.  Coupons are good towards your next purchase.  You must bring coupon in to redeem and they are valid for 60 days.   So, collect those "Hoppin Bucks" and use them towards your next purchase!
