SPASH Panther Pro Shop Plans Holiday Specials
By Robert Whitmire
The Panther Pro Shop is stocked and ready for holiday customers.
The Pro Shop is staffed daily from 7 AM to 4 PM by students from the school’s Introduction to Business and Marketing classes, taught by Trevor Knight.
“Students learn about marketing, social media, management, and actually get to showcase what they have learned in our Panther Pro Shop,” Knight said. “The income from the shop goes right back in to supporting the classes and to offer scholarships to our students.”
“SPASH has a wide variety of classes to offer students — but my personal favorite has to be the Business Department [class],” said Jaci Brandl, student manager of the Pro Shop.
The shop, which is located inside the school, offers the latest SPASH apparel and accessories. Students can shop during the school day, but parents and other fans will need to be buzzed into the school.
The Pro Shop has put together a series of holiday shopping promotions. Dec. 5 is “Mystery Deal Monday”, which gives everyone buying $20 in merchandise or more a chance to pick a ping pong ball out of a basket containing even more deals.
The store kicks off its “12 Days of Deals” beginning Tuesday, Dec. 6, with each school day leading up to the Winter Break will have a different deal, which can only be found on social media.
