Vineyard Vines Shopping 12/12

On December 12 from 1:00 to 3:00PM, Vineyard Vines is hosting a shopping day for AMPA. Customers receive 10% off and 10% goes back to AMPA. Since we have a limited time and many working parents, customers can call in between 1:00-3:00PM, suspend their transactions and complete it when they pick up their purchases before the close of business at 7:00PM. Costumers will still receive the discount and the school will receive credit for those items that are set aside during the 1-3PM shopping time.
