Ok guys, we need your help with this one! Here's our idea. We would like to start a series called: "This Week's Need to Know at Impulsive".
A blog post like this one will come out every Monday so that you can keep up to date with whatever is going on here. Classes that we've scheduled, events that are important to us and some more in depth information on them, what we are doing as a store this week, deals and sales, and other things like that. Along with the blog post, we will also be sending out an email to those of you who are part of our emailing list. This means that you will be "in the know" before the majority of our followers about the extra things that are happening in the store.
This would be a weekly update just for you! Every week will be a little different layout because we like to keep things pretty spontaneous around here *cough cough* hence our name *cough cough* but the main idea will be the same every week.
Please leave us a commit, email us, or somehow get your opinion about this to us! So, without further ado, here is our first (EVER!) "This Week's Need to Know at Impulsive"!!
