We are in our 14th year of offering a rewards program to our customers.  There is no fee involved and you can enter the program by giving us a phone number.  After each purchase we ask for that number and our computer keeps track of the items you have purchased.  When the total reaches $200.00, you will receive $10.00 off your next purchase.  Everyone loves this program, and it is one way we reward you for supporting us!
