Student Shopping at Myers

missjo 7 May 2008 47

Hello,

My name is Jo and I am the manager of the Youth department at Myer Canberra City. Recently I campaigned to introduce a regular student discount day in our Youth department and succeeded! I was hoping you could support this initiative by letting any students you know about this offer so that they can take advantage of the discounts. I also have made some posters and if you are interested I can bring/post these to anyone who is interested also I have flyers if anyone would like these too. If you would like to discuss this further please don’t hesitate to contact me on 6120 7475.

Kind regards,

Jo

Every Tuesday if you show a valid Student ID at Myer Canberra City in the Youth department, you will receive a further 10% off the price!
Valid student ID is an educational institute photo ID which has not expired!

Discounts off such brands as : Miss Shop, Bardot, Industrie, Kenji, Quirky Circus, Mossimo, M-One-11, French Kitty and more!
Shop on Tuesdays to save!

Caught a snippet on the radio the other day about Myer’s new marketing strategy – unfortunately I had to get out of the car, but it referred to the piloting of new marketing techniques. So it makes it sound very much as though “Miss Jo” is doing viral marketing on management orders and as a pilot program devised by Myer’s PR company. Am I wrong, Miss Jo? Happy to retract this post if you have convincing evidence!

Unfortunately I am not acting on any orders and as a result of the earbashing I have received on here I will be less enthusiastic when trying to use my initiative in the future. I would be interested to hear what the new Myer marketing strategies you heard were, as far as I’m aware we do catalogues, posters and t.v ads but that’s about it. I would have liked to support this site with a real ad and if I have anything else in the future I would definitely put forward a proposal to my manager about it. If any of you have anything else you would like to ask, perhaps you could come and see me and talk about what I am trying to achieve in the Youth Department, I will be there all day tomorrow (Student Discount Day) or call me on the work phone number listed above.
Thankyou.

Well if the Students are going to get 10% off at Myers on tight arse Tuesday they can all stop whinging about not having anywhere to park at the Uni.

You don’t see a David Jones store in Charnwood for what reason?

Have any of you saying Myer is overpriced ever actually bought anything there? I don’t shop there a lot, but I do buy my underwear there. They sell the same underwear in Target and K-Mart, and at the same price. The difference is that Myer is well stocked and not constantly filled with trailer trash and their masses of spawn. If you check out actual brands you will see that Myer’s prices are the same as everywhere else…it’s just that what might be top of the range in K-Mart is bottom of the range in Myer, they just tend to stock more expensive things.

Simple VY, save grog money, get shouted for a fortnight and pay them back drink by drink. Although, I haven’t been to Myers since I was doing night-shifts and pulling in a decent bit. I’m not a fashion man, really.

Agreed.

how can ANYONE afford to go shopping at myers and the like confuses me!!

What I want to know is how the hell students can afford to go shopping at somewhere like Myers anyway (full time ones, anyway). When I was a student I didn’t know anyone that could buy anything other than Best and Less and Lowes type clothing, as we were all broke from buying food and basic living!

whatever happened to beer for comment?

I don’t have a problem with ads as such, but they already have a dedicated spot on RA – the top right hand column. I’m pretty sure Myers, even in it’s current parlous state could afford to, you know, PAY for a bit of PR. Jazz, can/will you guys make up ads for people who don’t have the time or talents to do it themselves? Maybe Jo can tap a tiny bit of her budget and help the upkeep of RA at the same time?

Haha. Rivers clearance stores at that. This certainly isn’t the first attempt at an organisation to reach people through riotact, can’t see what the big deal is to people. What about the poor Canberra musicians who are always bombarding the site trying to get people to their shows. Then there’s events like the Black Opal etc. Credit to the site that people/companies think it’s a good enough avenue to reach a large audience. Unfortunately, comments such as many of the ones above highlight the percentage of douche bags in said audience.

Ignore those haters – you’d be grumpy too if you bought all your gear at Rivers.

Haha!

Hey missjo, does the discount apply to jeans in the yoof dept. too?

BigDave…maybe studying will improve our chances of getting a higher-paid job and put a lot more into the economy. Big concept, I know. Try not to implode whilst thinking about it.

And it’s not like students get that much of a discount. Do you have any concept of what 10% actually is? The only thing I’d probably ever buy from myers is a decent shirt or pair of trousers, usually within the $40-$60 range. Let’s hit the middle ($50) and see how much I save. A WHOPPING $5!!!!!!! Wow!!!! That’s umm….a subway meal? I could even do two dinners if I cooked (shit). We’re living like kings over here in student-land!

I’m glad I chose to study instead of doing crap jobs for the rest of my life so I’d have to work 50 hours to pull in what an educated person would get in 30.

I think it’s spelt S – P – A – M, but you’re probably already familiar with the concept.

Mens youth is on level one, on the right as you enter the department and you can get 10% off Industrie and Kenji business shirts.

Phew, made it the whole way through without making a spelling mistake! Wait, how do you spell phew?

Ah, the spelling police..out in force

As I was recently a student myself I would have liked to have been informed of where and when I could have saved money buying items like work or casual clothing. I can also understand the frustrations of those who aren’t able to take advantage of this offer, however I would hope that you would see the benefit for those students who are eligable

Wonder what she was studying…doesn’t look like it was spelling!

Best she report to “RiotSquare” for a public lashing – 10 lashes should do it.

Youth is Men’s Youth/Miss Shop if I am correct.
