Last summer we had an amazing time participating in the first-ever month-long Find Waldo Local scavenger hunt. We’re gearing up to do it all over again this year and are looking for other local, independently owned businesses who would like to participate.
Find Waldo Local was launched in the spirit of what Austin is all about – supporting local independent businesses by creating a fun and unique way of encouraging people to visit our vibrant, fabulous stores. It was a tremendous success for us and for participating businesses last year. We’re excited to be able to expand the program this year to include 25 local Austin businesses.
Here’s how it works: for the month of July, you hide a small Waldo in your store. We send people to you to find it. At the end of the month, we throw a big party here at BookPeople to celebrate. It costs absolutely nothing to participate.
If you would like to participate this year, you must be a local, independently owned business here in Austin. For more information and to submit your request to participate, please send an email to email@example.com.
And for those of you interested in hunting for Waldo again, we’ll have an announcement for you June 3rd. In the mean time, keep your eyes sharp and practice spotting those red and white stripes.
