2021 THE GREAT STASH DASH RETURNS!

January 22, 2021 through February 6, 2021

The Dash will be 16 days long to give you additional time to get to all shops. When you stop in with your Dash Bag and Passport you will receive 15% off your entire purchase, a coupon to use at a later date, and when you bring your bag in on the 5th Saturdays of a month (there are 3 additional days in 2021), you will receive the 15% discount on your entire purchase again!

 

This is the 6th year of the GSD and we are changing it up a bit! Instead of purchasing a new bag with your Passport, you can reuse one of the previous 5 bags. Just bring in your previous bag to get your free Passport. If you do not have a previous bag, you can purchase it from a participating Shop for $10 and receive your Passport.
