IT’S conkers season again, and to bring the spirit of the game alive for their customers, WOMbat Clothing stores are to stage conkers tournaments for all-comers over the next three weekends.
Participants don’t even need to go to the trouble of hunting for their own conkers, as the stores are being supplied with plenty of ready-strung horse chestnuts, so that customers can recreate the excitement of one of the ultimate school playground games in their WOMbat Clothing store.
This is a great chance for customers to relive some of their most memorable playground moments, or even perhaps for some to discover the excitement and elation of a conker tournament for the first time. And because the stores are providing the ammunition, there’ll be no accusations of‘nut nobbling’, or any of the other unsporting practices which school mates might have resorted to.
Store visitors will be able to either take part in a league contest with fellow WOMbat customers, challenge WOMbat staff to a ‘fight to the death’ or, if the queues at the tills start getting a little long, a rapid-fire best-of-three or best-of-five shoot-out. And there’ll be prizes of 10% off purchases made, or £10 WOMbat vouchers, depending on the format of the competition each store chooses. Details will be posted in each store.
Staff will officiate at every game, and in the event of any disputes will have the final say.
“We thought this would be a great way of encouraging people into our stores, and an event which would demonstrate that the WOMbat Clothing brand is all about fun, excitement and a passion for life,” said WOMbat’s Victoria Tingey.
Anyone interested in taking part can find the location of your nearest WOMbat Clothing store here, and call in on the next three Saturdays and Sundays to take part in the Great British conker fight.
Or they might just want to cheer on their mates and watch the action unfold. Either way, it’s a great way to experience what one of the newest, funkiest clothing retailers on the block is all about, and to discover a range of fun, funky and environmentally-friendly sports and leisure clothing as well as fair trade clothing that’s ‘born to be worn’.
