Gardner-White is Calling All Bloggers in Michigan! Write a Grand Blog to Win a Grand!

Introducing The Gardner-White Auburn Hills Grand Opening Blogger Contest! #GWgrand

Well friends, we all know there’s usually a piece of tired furniture in each of our homes we’d love to replace.  Whether you are putting together your first home, wanting to redo a family room to enjoy with the kids, or need an amazing new mattress, Gardner-White has you covered!  Through the power of your blog, you can tell us what items would be grand for your home and enter to win grand prizes!

The Grand Opening of the new Gardner-White store in Auburn Hills, MI (located at 4445 N. Atlantic Blvd. behind the Home Depot) is happening on October 20, 2012. This store is going to ROCK with big screen TVs by Best Buy, the dreamiest mattresses, amazing prices and a convenient location close to Great Lakes Crossing.

To celebrate the Grand Opening, Gardner-White has launched a “Blog for a Grand” contest for bloggers like you and Gardner-White is offering a grand prize of a grand!

A $1,000 gift card will be given to one winning blogger and a $500 gift card will be given to two individual bloggers.

The winners will receive their prizes at the October 20th Grand Opening in Auburn Hills!
