About Halfway Done With The Penguin Merger

October 18, 2012

It’s been about a week since the penguins began waddling in from the west coast and Penguin Gift Shop.  Considering that we’re on a 3rd floor walk up here at Penguin Place soon to be Penguin Gift Shop and we need to unpack, inventory and shelf the new penguin goodies in a coherent manner we requested that PGS send us only 8 – 10 boxes a day.  They had no problem with our request as they have to wrap and  pack everything up anyway.  Tonight we finally caught up on opening, unpacking, cataloging and shelving our new penguin inventory (albeit it’s a bit of a mess in the auxiliary penguin store-room.  So, right now I’d say we’re about half way done, with the other half en-route. I’ll sure be glad when this is over.

Penguin Place Up To 2000 Facebook Fans

April 26, 2011

Almost as fast an Emperor Penguin sliding on its belly down a steep and icy Antarctic slope, Penguin Place has been adding new fans (what’s not to like) to our Facebook Page, leading to today’s milestone 2000th Penguin Place FB Fan or friend or like.  Who knows what the right term is anymore?  In any case, the popularity of our Penguin FB page can’t be ignored any longer.  We’ve tried to keep things fun, posting everything from Pittsburgh Penguins hockey results, to how to help Northern Rockhopper Penguins in relation to the latest oil spill in the South Atlantic, to penguin jokes and news, to new Penguin Place products, sales and special offers from our website. It’s been fun, and just a wee bit addictive in light of the positive responses, comments and feedback from fellow penguin lovers the world over.
