Baby’s Room Black Friday Sale

If you’re pregnant or have a baby, you’ll definitely want to know about the Black Friday sale at The Baby’s Room in Rogers. (The store is located at the big_sale_tagShoppes at Pinnacle Hills, next to Dilly Dally’s toy store and close to Carrabba’s restaurant. The address is 3301 Market St. in Rogers.) This is the store’s biggest sales event of the year.

During the sale on Black Friday, you’ll be able to pop a balloon and get the savings amount contained inside, which could range anywhere from 10 to 50 percent off the total purchase. The Baby’s Room is known for high quality baby furniture, clothes, baby gear and more so check it out if you’re in the market.

James + James adds retail location, new surprises

james jamesad 2

Can we start out by saying that we think the world of the owner at James + James?

We first met James Smith when he was shooting video Christmas cards for families and then we recruited him to shoot and edit videos for our brand new (at the time) Doc Talk series with Mercy Health.

Then James (and his friend, James) shifted gears. He noticed there was a need for affordable, quality and real-wood furniture, so he tried his hand at another passion — furniture building. Now his start-up, James+James is one of the fastest growing furniture companies in the country.

James+James products are found in nearly every state from coast to coast. Job creation right here in the U.S. continues to remain a top priority. The company now provides work to over 20 team members and growing.

And just a few months ago, James + James opened a new retail store and it is a furniture showcase that’s filled with amazing home decor, lighting and gift options you don’t see in other places. They are headed to market soon and plan to come back with a HAUL. We can’t wait to see the new surprises in store!

We have to tell you, the retail location (at 4217 S. Thompson St. in Springdale, 1 mile north of the NWA Mall) is beautiful even without all the great furniture and accessories.

Here’s a little peek inside:

Here’s a video about their story. In it, James talks about the versatility of their hand-crafted furniture and how it has led them to selling to people living in all but two states in the U.S. (and lots of other  countries) from penthouses in New York City to farmhouses in Illinois.

The retail store and showroom is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 7pm and Sunday from 12 to 5pm. In addition to the amazing tables and chairs, we’re partial to the lighting options at the retail store:

Soapware MHW-Motherlode-Ad2 Sept14

Maybe the kids don’t listen to their mamas as much as we want them to, but more and more companies ARE paying attention to what we mothers have to say. In fact, a local company called SOAPware is going to give one local mom a $100 Amazon Gift Card in exchange for less than five minutes of her time. (SOAPware is a software development company that works with healthcare clinics and hospitals across the country.)

Fill out this online Mom’s Survey and your name automatically goes into an online hat for the random drawing to win the $100 Amazon Gift Card Woo-hoo! This would be perfect for buying Christmas presents or for mama to use on herself ;)

gift cardAs always, we have thoroughly checked out this survey and have also taken it ourselves, so we can assure you that there’s no scam here. Here’s what you need to know about the Mom’s Survey:

  • They’re not asking for too much personal information — just first name and email address and your “age range.” (No specifics.)
  • They’re not asking for too much of your time. (The survey is only 5 multiple-choice questions long. That’s it. We took it in less than five minutes, and it’s all multiple choice point and click. No essay questions here.)
  • They’re asking these questions in order to make the healthcare system more helpful and efficient — which is something we moms can appreciate since we’re usually the ones who are taking kids, aging parents (and even reluctant husbands) to the doctor.

We hope you’ll participate by providing your honest feedback on these healthcare-related questions. And if you happen to help yourself to a $100 Amazon Gift Card because you offered your opinion?? Well then everyone wins. :-)

Good luck, mamas!

Metro Appliances Anniversary Celebration

metro winnerOne of our favorite nwaMotherlode sponsors, Metro Appliances & More, has been celebrating their 40th anniversary for the past several months. And these guys really know how to party. In fact, they’ve been celebrating 40 years of business by pledging to give away $40,000 in appliances to their customers. (They draw for a winner’s name once each week, and that person wins a new washer and dryer.)

Pictured above is one of the most recent winners, Thelma Eckert of Springdale. She’s going to be smiling every time she washes a load of clothes in those FREE machines. :-)

Metro has already blown right past the $40,000 giveaway mark. They’ve already given away $60,000 worth of appliances and they’re still going. So… if you’d like to get in on the action, we’d recommend you do it soon before the anniversary celebration comes to a close.

Here’s how you enter:

1. Go to the Metro Appliances & More showroom. (They’re located at 5700 N. Thompson in Springdale. It’s on 71B between Springdale and Lowell.)

2. Put your name in the drawing to win a washer and dryer set, which is valued between $1,000 and $2,000. (Note: You do NOT have to purchase anything to put your name in the drawing. No strings attached.)

metro_40logo_jpgThat’s it! Easy as that. If you’re out and about this weekend, stop by the showroom and put your name in the hat. We can guarantee you’ll enjoy looking around the store, which is beautiful and HUGE. It’s fun to look at all the different kitchen displays they have in place, and the staff there will answer your questions if you have any or just let you browse in peace, if that’s what you prefer.

For more info about the drawing, stop by the store or click HERE for details. Good luck!

And Happy Anniversary to our friends at Metro Appliances & More. Thanks for 40 years of some of the best customer service we’ve ever seen. :-)
