Christmas Party

Our annual Christmas party takes place Sunday Dec. 17 starting at noon with snacks. The Humane Society of Southern Illinois will visit from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and we will donate 10% of sales during that period to them. The Southern Illinois Roller Girls will be here to help with the Christmas drawing of about $1500 worth of items at 4:30. How to get tickets for the drawing:

Come in.  You get 1 ticket just for coming into the store

Wear a Christmas sweater or hat (1 ticket for each). Just a red and green sweater will not count. It must be something that shows off your Christmas spirit.

Get one for each 5 usable cans of food or 10 pounds of Newspaper

Get one ticket for each stamp you earn on your Castle Card that day

See you Sunday

Carbondale El Greco

The downtown construction has really affected Carbondale landmark El Greco. This post has been circulating through social media:

Ok folks How much do you  El Greco!? I am asking for your help. Come in this month and help us stay afloat! We are looking at not making payroll. We are down more than 50% from previous years. There is construction out front ( that has likely really hurt us) but you can still get to the parking lot behind El Greco from the front or back. Ethen is there and would love to see you!

Through July 31, bring in a receipt showing you spent $10 or more at El Greco (not including tax) we will take off the dollar amount as a percentage from your purchase, maximum 25%. So spend $12.42, bring in the receipt and get 12% off your purchase of in stock merchandise.

Facebook Live Sale

Trying out something new, the store will host a Facebook Live sale of about a dozen items from our inventory from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Central Time on Sunday April 2. This is not an auction. We will show and talk about the item and the first person to message or post that they want it and Paypal or call the store with payment gets it. We will ship out all items on April 3.
