It's an annual opportunity to thank YOU and this year it comes with an exciting announcement. It's tradition here at the Corn Wagon to celebrate another fabric-filled trip around the sun with our Birthday P.J Party Sale each November. You've kept us in business, shared inspiration and been our friends for 23 years and we couldn't be more excited to show our appreciation with our biggest discounts of the year!
Tomorrow, Saturday, November 5th, we'll open early at 9:00 a.m. with our deepest discount of the day. The discount percent lessens as the birthday party winds down so you'll want to get here early -- that's where the pajamas come in. You can just roll out of bed, jump in the car, run down to the Wagon and shop to your heart's content. Here's the sale schedule:
Saturday, November 5, 2022:
9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. 30% off regular price items
10:00 a.m. - Noon 25% off regular price items
Noon - 5:00 p.m. 20% off regular price items
Wear your pajamas into the store for an additional 5% off all day!
Discounts valid in-store only, toward in-stock, regular price items and cannot be combined with other offers. Sale excludes locally handmade goods, bom kits, classes, events and services. We will not hold items or pre-cut fabric for this sale.
If you are in the store shopping when the discount time changes, we will give you a sticker so you will receive the discount according to the time you arrived, not the time you check out.
