LAS VEGAS, Jan. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Zappos.com, a leader in online apparel and footwear sales and famous for its customer service, is embarking on a year-long 'Friends with Benefits Road Show.' As a way of saying thank you to loyal customers, and in hopes of making new friends, Zappos will be popping by to say hello in select cities around the country. In addition to regular merchandise, the Road Show will feature many wonderful (and sometimes weird) special events and one-of-a-kind experiences.
Kicking off this month, the tour will make stops in cities both big and small. Zappos has been 'keeping it weird' for 17 years now, so naturally, Austin, TX will be the first stop, followed by Atlanta, Nashville and more. The remaining locations will be announced in the coming months as Zappos sets out to meet as many friends as possible, up close and personal, throughout 2017.
Bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase 'Friends with Benefits,' the tour is all about Zappos saying thanks, showcasing unparalleled customer service, giving back to the community and rewarding customers and friends. Manifesting the Zappos spirit into a unique mobile experience, attendees may shop distinctive products and enjoy custom rewards, and enjoy a weekend full of high fiving, happy-houring and puppy kissing. Plus, each event will feature local food, live music, puppy fashion shows, and more.
"At Zappos.com, our customers mean the world to us, so we're hitting the road with our 'Friends with Benefits' tour to celebrate and thank them in person," said Kristin Richmer, Senior Brand Marketing Manager. "We want to shake their hands, give them really big high fives and meet their friends—delivering happiness and memorable experiences along the way."
The 'Friends with Benefits' Road Show begins in Austin, TX, from January 27 - 29, and is free, and very much open to the public. Friends, family and children (two and four-legged) are welcome—after all, sharing is caring.
