April in Review

April was an exciting month for us. While listening to music through great, inexpensive Coby headphones, we welcomed the warmer weather with BBQ and A/C sales and covered everything from portable appliances to our many Hot Deals of the Week. We celebrated Earth Day and Administrative Assistant’s Day, as well as our monthly Sweepstakes of the Century with our April Sony electronics giveaway. A couple of quality video games came out for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that earned points toward our Video Game Rewards Program. We wrote a few helpful how-to guides, including how to prevent viruses from taking over your computer, how to use the modes on your digital camera, and how to increase your productivity with BlackBerry applications.

Melissa Etheridge came to the P.C. Richard & Son Theater. We gave away tickets and had a great show. We also announced that Glee was coming to the theater in May for breakfast with Elvis Duran and the Morning Show and reviewed some amazing past performances of cover songs and the Usher performance from March 29.

With Mother’s Day coming up early in May, we had some great inexpensive gift ideas (like cameras and camcorders!). Toni Senecal and her show Toni On! New York also covered on-the-go gadgets to use past Mother’s Day and into the summer, including the portable TV device FLO TV.

We celebrated the opening of our Milford, CT and Northeast Philadelphia, PA stores, as well as the first month of our Facebook page. We spoke about some helpful parts of the P.C. Richard & Son retail chain, including the clearance center and Verizon kiosks where you can do everything from pay your bill to purchase a whole new phone.

As you can see, we had several posts this month. So, what were you most interested in? Here’s the breakdown of the top 5 most-read entries:
