A.J. Wright Discount Stores: Sticker Shock But in a Good Way!
I hope everyone had a fantastic week! Life is good!
This week I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in a private shopping event with A.J. Wright Discount stores. Last year, I participated in a similar event when A.J. Wright opened up their new store at Stonecrest Mall outside of Atlanta, GA. A.J. Wright has done very well in the Atlanta area and this Thursday, they opened their fourth store! The new location is in Tucker, GA near Northlake Mall.
Since discovering A.J. Wright last year, I have been shopping there ever since. Even my Mom loves shopping there. When I needed luggage for a couple of upcoming trips, she is the one who suggested A.J. Wright. And of course, I found quality luggage at insane prices. A weekend bag for $14.99. A medium size roller bag for $30! I saved over 50% off the original price. Also I found cute sandals for myself.
Like last time, A.J. Wright invited a few bloggers to shop the store with a $100 gift card. We could also invite a friend and the friend received a $100 gift card also. I chose to bring my babysitter, because she just relocated and she has been extremely good to me and the luxe kids. She deserved it! Our challenge was to spend 20 minutes in each department looking for items. Also has a bonus, the person who selected an item in each department that was discounted the most from the original price received an additional $20 gift card. How cool is that?
Well the new A.J. Wright in Tucker, GA did not disappoint. The prices were UNBELIEVABLE!! Like I said, sticker shock in a good way! Of course, considering school just started, I focused on items for the luxe kids. Check out what I found:
Hanes Boxer briefs for luxe son. These were only $2.99 per pack!
Hanes Socks. 6 pairs for only $2.99
Sneakers. A pair of Ralph Lauren black sneakers for luxe son. Originally, $45 dollars….discounted, $16.99. Woot! These are perfect, because they are comfy and dirt does not show up on black sneakers.
Polo Assn long sleeve/polo shirt for only $7.99. Original price: $28
Nike Sneakers for luxe baby. Pink and white. So cute! Originally $40, A.J. Wright price: $19!
Sandals for me: $12.99! (Do you see luxe baby’s foot? Hilarity!)
Pack of Hanes bikini briefs for me: $3.99
Home items: Grater: $2.99; Cookie Sheet: $3.49; French Vanilla 18oz Candle: $3.99.
I also got a bathroom rug for only $6.99. These rugs usually sell for $30 in other retail stores. I was pretty happy when I was done!
A few more facts about A.J. Wright:
1. Whenever A.J. Wright opens a new store, they donate $3000 to the Boys and Girls Club in the store’s neighborhood.
2. A model search is conducted in conjunction with every new store opening. The model search for the new Tucker location is taking place next week. Visit A.J.Wright’s website for details.
I will post more pictures from the event next week. Many of my blogging friends were in attendance and we had a blast! A.J. Wright had a professional photographer there and she really captured all the magic from that day!
