With Valentine’s Day approaching The Original Print Shop (TOPS) has an innovative idea that has begun to fill the store’s windows and is designed to give back to the community that has supported them since they opened their doors last year.
And it is absolutely, positively, 100% free.
TOPS owners Steve and Genji LeClair came up with an initiative that coincides nicely with the holiday that celebrates love. If you come into the store and express your amour with a little paper heart that will stick it on the window for all to see, your declaration of affection will send a dollar to TrueMentors a program that matches kids ages 5-14 with adults for support in dealing with the day to day challenges young people often face.
We stopped into the downtown Fremont store and checked out the little love tags that have consumed the first of many windows TOPS hopes to fill and paused long enough to include our own addition to the wide variety of offerings.
These little gems include “small town living’ ‘fremont wrestling’, ‘my four legged kids’ and ‘the smell of new cut grass’ as well as the names of individuals and, of course, ‘Chicken McNuggets’
Want to spread a little love while supporting a community program? Of course you do because it’s fun, it’s for a good cause and most of all it is FREE. You needn’t be a customer, it’s not going to cost you any money and you can slap on a declaration of your desire for all passersby to admire.
It is going on from now until V-Day (Feb 14th) and the LeClairs hope to fill each of the windows facing Main Street with these emblems of endearment.
So get yourself down to The Original Print Shop in downtown Fremont and hang your heart among the other expressions of love.
And did we mention that it’s free?
