ATLANTA, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hear ye, Hear ye! Great American Cookies® declares cookies for all on Tax Day, April 15, 2014! Through the "Incomes the Sweetness" promotion, the national gourmet cookie shop will mark the culmination of tax season by providing a free Original Chocolate Chip Cookie to customers who stop by participating stores.* No purchase or proof of completed taxes is necessary.
"Pardon the pun, but this time of year can be taxing," said David Kaiser, vice president, Great American Cookies. "We want to provide some sweet relief to our customers and what better way to do it than with a delicious and traditional chocolate chip cookie? While filing our taxes may not be the greatest reason for a party, we do think it's a great day for everyone to come together and celebrate our country. We hope to see our customers, old and new, on Tuesday, April 15th."
The company's "Income the Sweetness" promotion marks the second year Great American Cookies has offered a free treat on Tax Day. Last year, the promotion coincided with the launch of the company's Birthday Cake Cookie. This year, Great American Cookies is going back to its roots by offering the great American classic, the chocolate chip cookie.
