Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

What’s that old saying? In like a lion out like a lamb? This has been a busy week getting ready for our annual shut down and now both factories are gearing up for up to 6″-12″ of SNOW!

Actually it’s not too bad in New England and Missouri since we are kind of used to the snow by now, but Las Vegas is another story. Can you believe they had over 3″ of snow this week? Snow on palm trees?

If the weather channel is right the holidays may be white this year for all of us at Hodges!

Holidays…that’s what I wanted to let everyone know about, our holidays. It’s winter, our sale has started and now everyone here at Hodges gets a little vacation and time to relax with our families over the next few weeks.  Hodges production is closed for almost two weeks.

Production is closed from noon December 23, 2008 – January 5, 2009. So if you order on our website between these dates your custom orders will be scheduled for delivery after January 12, 2009.

Don’t worry though, our Customer Service department will be open on December 23, 2008, 8:00am – 7:00pm and December 29 – 31, 8:30am – 4:30pm if you have any questions and normal business hours will resume on January 5, 2009.

If you have any questions now about awards that you’ll need during those times you can call 1-800-556-2440 or e-mail us at info@hodgesbadge.com and we’ll do all that we can to get your event off with out a hitch – we have quite a selection of stock items that ship the same day and we can get out before December 23rd.

Winter Sale

Hodges started it’s annual Winter Sale last week. I know, I know winter doesn’t technically start for a couple of weeks. And just to be clear, I’m in no rush to get it started (The New England cold already has me dreaming of palm trees and lounge chairs) but this sale is a great deal.

We offer 10% off on all orders pre-paid with a credit card. Of course there are some restrictions, like the discount is only on the merchandise total and it’s not applicable on orders needed in less than 9 working days but you can order now and get your awards delivered later, any time through out the year.

 Sale Ends February 15th, 2009 so don’t miss out!
