Newsletter #60 December, 2002 - February, 2003

22nd Anniversary Sale

        December 1st marks Uncle Edgar's 22nd anniversary, and we're celebrating with a huge sale. Come into either Uncle Edgar's or Uncle Hugo's and save at least 10% off everything except gift certificates and items that are already marked 40% off. A discount card will save you even more--you'll get both the 10% savings from the discount card and the 10% savings from the sale. Come in and save on new books, used books, calendars, jigsaw puzzles, games, audiobooks, music, magazines, model kits, etc. (Sales prices apply to in-store purchases, but not to mail orders.)
        The 22nd Anniversary Sale lasts Friday, November 29th through Sunday, December 8th--giving you two weekends to take advantage of the savings.
        We will also be having our annual inventory reduction sale between Christmas and New Year's Day, but that will feature deep discounts on things we really, really want to get rid of (including lots of collectable card game material). It will not be a store-wide sale, like the 22nd Anniversary Sale.
        [By the way, a lot of people in the St. Paul area were unhappy they didn't receive notice of the last sale until it was over. The newsletter went to the Bulk Mail Center in Minneapolis on August 20, and lots of people started receiving it August 23 and 24. By August 28, we had already received completed mail order forms from other states--the people had received the newsletter, read it, filled out the form, mailed it back to us, and we received it by August 28! The sale lasted August 30 to September 8. As far as we can tell, the St. Paul Post Office did not deliver a single copy of the newsletter anywhere in 550xx or 551xx zip codes until September 9, and then the complaints really poured in. We're sorry about the situation, but nobody seems to be able to get the St. Paul Post Office to deliver bulk rate mail in a timely manner.]

Our New Website

        
        We now have a website, which can be reached at either www.UncleHugo.com or www.UncleEdgar.com (a few of our customers are very fierce about being only sf readers or only mystery readers). At first, it will be mainly useful as a place to post the newsletter at about the same time we take it to the printer, so that most people will be able to view the newsletter a couple weeks sooner than the dead-tree version would reach them, and St. Paul-area people will be able to view the newsletter a month or so before the dead-tree version would reach them. Since it's still in the experimental stage, we're sending the dead-tree version of this issue to all the U.S. addresses. If you'd like to only receive an e-mail "postcard" in the future telling you that the newest newsletter is posted on the website, let us know by e-mail and we'll stop sending the dead-tree version to you.
        Eventually, we hope to develop the website into a shopping cart service. We'd also like at some point to get most of our new book inventory listed on the website, but there hasn't been time to play with our computerized inventory software to see if that's as easy as the vendor claims it is. And we are looking at upgrading our inventory software in a major way, which would first require a massive upgrade in our obsolete (in other words, top of the line 3 years ago) hardware, as well as re-learning how to do everything on the new software that we now understand how to do on the old software.

        A week before the newsletter went to the printer, Uncle Hugo's received 56 new fantasy greeting card designs, for a total about 120 new designs in the last 6 months.
        We currently have a large selection in various colors of t-shirts with Uncle Hugo's featured on one side and Uncle Edgar's featured on the other side, with medium, large, and XL at $12, XXL at $14, and XXXL at $16.

        We have lots of Lord of the Rings books, and the game wholesaler says that the Lord of the Rings maps will be available again before Christmas. We still have a few of the Lord of the Rings jigsaw puzzles that were put out several years ago, just before the company went bankrupt. Uncle Hugo's has a large selection of other jigsaw puzzles, while Uncle Edgar's has mystery jigsaw puzzles (where you have to assemble the puzzles to solve the mystery) and "How to Host a Mystery" games.
        Uncle Edgar's recently got restocked with The Nero Wolfe Cookbook ($16.95) and The Cat Who . . . Cookbook ($21.95). And we still have copies of Eat, Drink, and Be Kinky ($12.00).
