SammySocks Etc. Blog - Comments and Observations from Someone Who Is a Retired Educator and the Father of Sammy (a Person with Autism). Visit us at www.sammysocksetc.com.

            We would like you to buy your and your family’s socks from SammySocks Etc. Big Box Stores do serve a purpose, but if you’re on the fence, we hope these 10 reasons will sway you toward buying from SammySocks Etc.

  1. When you buy your socks from SammySocks Etc. you are supporting Sammy – the Sammy of SammySocks Etc. The Big Box Stores do not do that.
  2. The more socks you buy from SammySocks Etc. the better the opportunity for us to grow. Hopefully, we will get big enough to employ other adults with differing abilities. The Big Box Stores are already big. Hence the “Big” in their name.
  3. Where else can you get such great poetry? Books? Yeah, okay. But you have to wade through page after page of heavyweights like Frost, Longfellow, Poe, Dickinson, and Browning. With SammySocks Etc. you get one poem – just enough to let the world know you have class and sophistication. And our poems rhyme! You know only the really good poetry rhymes. You won’t get poetry from those Big Box Stores. You might get an announcement or two about a clean-up on aisle five or a price check on men’s underwear – but no poetry.
  4. When you get socks from SammySocks Etc. you get a Sammy Saying. Sammy has a unique way of looking at the world. He is not afraid to say what he thinks. Sayings like “It’s taking too long!”, “I want the day to be over!”, “It’s keeping me awake!”, and “I don’t know what to tell you!” tell it like it is. Big Box Stores like to smooth things over. Everything is great with them. That’s not how it really is.
  5. You can literally order socks and get your socks from SammySocks Etc. in your socks! We have an online store. You can do it all through our store. We deliver right to your door! What can be better than that? I guess you could shop at the Big Box Stores in your socks. But you would probably step in gum, stub your toe, or get your foot run over by one of their carts. Or maybe, maybe, if you’re just wearing socks, the Big Box Store might think you are shoplifting the socks even though they actually are yours and you would get arrested. Then you would have to spend your life savings on a lawyer which means you couldn’t retire when you wanted to and not be able to travel all through Europe or open that video store. If only you had bought your socks from SammySocks Etc. and not tried to get them from the Big Box Store!
  6. A great unboxing experience! When you buy socks from SammySocks Etc. you get a great unboxing experience. There’s a colorful box or bubble mailer, beautiful peacock feather tissue paper, a baggie full of stuff from SammySocks Etc. including candy, and those socks! Oh, those socks! It’s like Christmas or your birthday when you get socks from SammySocks Etc.! At those Big Box Stores, your socks get put in a little plastic bag after you’ve stood in line to checkout where you have to read those gossip magazines (I did not know that so many movie stars are actually aliens!). And when you get home, you know, you take the socks out of the bag on the kitchen counter and get mustard or ketchup on them and there you go!
  7. You can get some socks for someone else and have them delivered right to their door when you order socks from SammySocks Etc. They get to have a great unboxing experience. It’s a surprise because you didn’t tell them they were getting socks. It can really make their day! Not so with Big Box Stores. I guess you could send your friend or family member an advertisement flyer from the Big Box Store.
  8. When you buy socks from SammySocks Etc. you get the opportunity to join our email mailing list. With that, you will get news and notes about SammySocks Etc. You will get notices when a new SammySocks Etc. blog post has been posted, upcoming sales events, new product notifications, and the like. Big Box Stores, I guess you could take a look at their bulletin board.
  9. Candy! You get candy with every order! Wow! Big Box Stores – you have to pay for the candy.
  10. SammySocks Etc. gives 5% of its sales to UP – United Partners of Pflugerville, Texas. It’s a wonderful place where adults with differing abilities can gather.

            So, ten reasons to buy socks from SammySocks Etc.!
