Hello Meeplites! There’s more that just Pokémon to hunt in West Seattle!

Everyone’s favorite stripy red sweater-wearing hide-and-seek enthusiast has been sighted around the store and you can earn prizes if you find him.


Here’s how it works:

  • Waldo will be hidden somewhere new each day
  • One person can find him each day
  • He will always appear INSIDE the store, never outside.
  • If you see Waldo around while shopping or enjoying a game in our café, let a store employee know to claim your prize.
  • Prizes include your choice of:
    • 25 Bonus Perkville Points credited to your account
    • 1 Item from of your choice from the prize box
    • Coupon for $5 off a purchase of $25 or more

 

Keep your eyes peeled for a 6″ tall Waldo cut-out next time you’re in the store. Happy Hunting!

Wow.  Just Wow!  We had a booth at the West Seattle Summer Fest for the first time and I am overwhelmed by the response!  We had a great time playing Win, Lose or Banana, Happy Salmon, Spot it!, Animal Upon Animal and a bunch of other quick, fun games with all of you.

We said Hey to our regulars, How Ya Doin’ to some folks we haven’t seen in a while and Howdy Do to a bunch of people who have never heard of us!

I want to thank everyone who helped out – Kennedy, Josh and Stacy – y’all were fantastic!  And send out a Giant Thank You to all of you for making it a super fun weekend!
