There’s a time in everyone’s life they’ve hoped for a big snowstorm. As a child, it gets you out of school. Another reason is if you bought a snowblower that season at Beisswenger’s Hardware and Power Equipment in New Brighton, Minnesota. Because if a winter storm hits on New Year’s Day, you may get your money back.
The promotion, which starts during the summer and ends in early December, states that anyone who bought a snowblower at Beisswenger’s that winter season will receive a full refund (minus taxes) if snowfall on New Year’s Day reaches 6 inches, according to measurements at the local airport. The promotion receives a lot of attention as the end of the year approaches, says sales manager Ray Pomerleau.
The promotion backs up the commitment Beisswenger’s has made to outdoor power equipment like snowblowers. The business, which is nearing its 100th anniversary, services a full range of outdoor power equipment.
“We’ve come close one year, with around 4 inches falling once it was all counted. We actually really hope it happens; it’d be a great day for our customers. For them, it would be like winning the lottery. When you wake up on New Year’s Day, it just might be your lucky day,” Pomerleau says.
