As I sit here at my desk eating pineapple (what else?) for breakfast, I can’t help but be amazed by all of the new developments here at Pineapple HQ this week. (Barlow actually requires that we eat fresh pineapple four times per week. Just kidding.)
First on the books is a repeat trip back to our favorite city, Toronto! I think the boys just want another stamp on their passports. It’s time to seal the deal with the dealer group up there; they’re definitely ripe for picking the Pineapple! We’re counting on the boys to bring it home.
After that, it’s time to hit the road. The Pineapple People are heading to sunny south Florida to speak to a dealership that we met at NABD in Vegas. Assuming they don’t just decide to stay there and live on the beach, it’s off to Ohio after that to meet with another potential client. Lots of folks are thisclose to picking the Pineapple, and we’re very excited about that. I’m personally pumped about the Florida lead because I heart the beach! (I even got married on a Florida beach last year, THAT’S how much I love it!) Traveling with the Pineapples is always an adventure, and I’ll be here to keep you informed of all the happenings on the road.
Pineapple Advertising has hit a home run as far as car dealerships are concerned, but we also have several clients in other industries, as well. We have a meeting next week with a really cool furniture store that is ripe for Picking Us! It’s an awesome store, and we know that we can do a great job for them.
Pineapple Helping Hands is still collecting donations this weekend for the Castellanos family, victims of a house fire one week ago today. All items are welcome, and we are especially needing the following: household items, linens, towels, kitchen items, men’s clothing (XXL, 36×36), women’s clothing (medium, size 7.5-8 shoes, LOVES flip-flops!), 3T girl’s clothing, and 3-6 month girl’s clothing. Please let us know if you have anything to donate. You can reach us via our Facebook page, or you can e-mail me at Ashley@PickthePineapple.com. We are so grateful to those who have been able to donate so far. We appreciate you!
For those of you crazy Facebook addicts, we are still doing our Fan Blitz! It’s EASY…just tell your friends to visit the Pineapple page, click “Like” at the top, then post your name on our wall, so we know who sent them. We are giving away FREE “Your Commercials Suck” tee shirts to the first five winners. We’ve got two so far, closing in on three, so there are still two left. Hurry, hurry! Today would be a good day, since everyone will be slacking at work due to the upcoming long weekend.
Speaking of the holiday weekend, we wish all of you a safe and festive Memorial Day. Whether you’re boating, camping, or just hanging out at home, enjoy the break. You deserve it! We’ll talk next week!
