The Fair Wage Folks invite you to the Big Box Bash this Saturday, June 15! 12noon- 3:00pm
4th and Q near Big Louis Pizza.
The Big Box Bash will be a fun, family-friendly event alternative to Walmart’s ‘year-since-invasion’ (anniversary) sale.* The Big Box Bash will be outdoors, set up with tables and feature live music, good munchies, kids’ games, and a large paper mache BIG BOX “effigy” [Walmart, K-Mart, Target] for young and old alike to swing at like a pinata! See how hollow their promise of low prices is.
We will also be distributing promotional materials from local merchants, attempting to direct shoppers (the U.S. word for “people”) away from Walmart and back to smaller, local businesses.
The plan is to do the Big Box Bash on the 101/Broadway. The lot we were planning became unavailable, so we are still figuring out the site. We will put the location on our blog, fairwages.org and you will see us if you drive on the 101 through Eureka. You will see the Big Box “effigy”.
The plan is for the event to go from noon to 3pm, this Saturday, 7/15. Little people will get first swings at the Big Box effigy!!
*A YEAR AGO THIS WEEKEND… the largest “Big Box Retail” parasite (Wal-Mart) wrapped its vampire squid tentacles into our community. Sucking the life out of local business and enslaving people in far off lands to make cheap products, they blight our community with GMO Foods, Empty Store Fronts and Poverty Level Wages.
