We’ve officially launched our Customer Rewards and VIR (Very Important Reader) program and we’ll now be able to easily reward you with points and nifty gifts as you find your favorite new reads at Main Street Reads.
In a nutshell, you’ll earn 10 points for every dollar spent at Main Street Reads (excluding tax). When you reach point levels you’ll get a gift; it’s really that simple!
PLUS – When you reach 1500 points, you become a VIP member, earning you 1.5 points on further purchases!
To sign up, visit the store – it takes less than a minute to start earning, and we’ll give you 50 points just for signing up!
A Great Saturday for Readers and Writers! “Tell Me a Story…”
The “Our Prince of Scribes” writers conference was a huge hit for local writers and authors – With 30 participants, brilliant faculty talks, and a booksignging and pizza party afterward right here at the store, locals were treated to a day of learning and sharing. Our sincerest thanks to the Pat Conroy Literary Center and to the Summerville Theatre for hosting this event – one more reason Summerville is THE place to be in the lowcountry!
Writers Group will take place on Monday, Pulpwood Queens on Tuesday, but NO Story Time this Friday! On Thursday we’ll be CLOSED to join the rest of the country in over-stuffing ourselves with turkey and fixin’s!
