The parking lot was packed with side by sides, 4-wheelers,the Rockford Sound Lab and other vehicles for people to look at, sit in and enjoy great sound. Everything in the store was on sale and priced for an exciting shopping experience to go along with the festivities.In order to make this event the experience Tunes‐N‐Tint was looking for no installations were performed that day and a good chunk of the parking lot was closed off. All hands were on deck… techs, sales people and even office staff were there ready to great customers, show off the newly remodeled store and made sure everyone had a great time.
“The event was a tremendous success and the turn out was great. There were times we had way more vehicles than we hard parking and more customers than we able to fit in the showroom,” said Jessie Walker Tunes‐N‐Tint Store Manager recounted.
“Our goal of having this event was simply to invite people out. We wanted to show them all the different cool stuff we could do to their vehicle. Whether it’s a boat, car, truck, motorcycle or even a side‐by‐side we had some demos on site to show off the latest gear. It was really a lot of fun,” stated Joe Cassity, Tunes‐N‐Tint Operations Director. Continuing, Cassity stated “I think we certainly achieved that goal. It was great having Mike Lee from the 98.3FM’s big morning show. That combined with the other activities we had helped keep people engaged and excited.”
Jody Culberson, 5-Axis, stated “The Tunes-N-Tint was a major job and a big investment for the store. The product displays, graphics and overall showroom look when finished was a tremendous upgrade. In fact, Joe told me his margins are up as well as the closing rate. The product displays give his customers product information to make a buying decision.”
Tunes‐N‐Tint hopes to turn this format into an annual anniversary event. “Overall I think everyone had a great time and I’m already excited about what next year will bring” Cassity concluded.
