Regular Brigade watchers will know that we like to go all out each year for Salute, with an array of releases across our various ranges. This year was no different, with loads of shiny new models ready to roll. But, thanks to circumstances beyond everyone’s control, it’s not to be this time. We were all dressed up, but there’s nowhere to go.
So we’re going to roll the releases out onto the website over the next few weeks, with most weeks featuring two or even three items or sets of items. We had also hit on the idea of running a promotion for each one, with 15% off the new models for the first three weeks after release; that’s the same discount level we normally offer during our Christmas sale. But then we had a rethink and thought better of it.
Instead, we’re only going to offer you half the discount – 7.5% – off the new releases; the other 7.5% we’ve decided to give to HEROES, an organisation set up to support NHS workers. We have no idea what this will amount to – sales of new items are impossible to predict, some fly off the shelves immediately while others are slow burners (and some just don’t sell!). Even if we just donate a tenner, it’s something – but we hope we can do far better than that.
The releases will start later this week; with each one we’ll let you know how long it’ll be on offer, and warn you when they’re about to expire.
As a treat, and to get you in the mood, here’s one of the greatest songs ever written…
