A great Bastille Day at the store

July 17, 2008

We had a wonderful fun Bastille Day at the store last week-end. The French national holiday being a Monday this year we decided to celebrate during the whole week-end of July 12th and 13th. Ellen the accordeonist was back. She set the festive ambiance in front of the store. My friend Francine accompanied her singing the most famous songs of French Repertoire such as Piaf and even La Marseillaise, the French hymn.

60 blue, white and red balloons were decorating the store outside, remimbering the colors of the French flag. Speaking about flag, we hung a huge one inside the store too. It was really easy to understand that Peche Mignon is a French store!

People had fun inside the store too, tasting our delicious homemade crepes with jam and Nutella and enjoying great prices as we started the summer sale on Saturday. Almost the whole store was marked 20 to 70% down. Customers and friends visited us to take advantage of not-to-be-missed deals; some of them even started their Holiday shopping early. We had a great turn out, lots of fun and everybody left happy with a full stomach.

Thank you all for joining us on this special week-end. For those who couldn’t make it, the sale at Peche Mignon will go on at least until the end of July. It’s not too late to get good deals!


Come and celebrate Bastille Day at our store!
