MARQUETTE – Back to school usually means, pens, back packs and school books, this year you can add boy band to that list.
Kicking it up a notch is Walmart with a new element. As students search for their school supplies they are entering their store to win a performance by European boy-band, “The Vamps.”
“They can search for their school supply list on our website and share that school supply list on their favorite social media site and automatically we get entered in for the Vamps to come to our community,” said assistant store manager, Lea Dziesinski. “Hi am Connor, I’m Tristin, I’m James and I am Brad and we are “The Vamps”
To keep the momentum going Walmart has rolled back prices on school items and has introduced their own Private Label of school supplies, called Case Mate.
“We would love the excitement of bringing in this world class up and coming pop group to the U.P. so we encourage everyone to go on our website, check out their back to school list, get ready for back to school with some of our great school supply offerings,” continued Dziesinski.
The Vamps says, “chat with all of your friends on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook and all of that.”
The competition ends August 28th. The wining store will be selected Sept. 8th with the concert taking place the end of September.
