We are excited to announce that our Easter chicks can be found in store again this year!  They will be spending the week with us, so you can stop by and see them anytime before April 7.  They’re adorable, and the kids love them!  We are running a live webcam feed this year of the playful little chicks that you can find on our Facebook page, here.

We are also running a coloring contest for children ages 1-10 this week.  You can pick up the coloring pages in store, or print them out at the links below:

There are prizes for all children who color a picture.  We look forward to seeing many wonderful and creative entries!

This past week was also the Immersion Day event with Dr. Stoll that we have been looking forward to, and we certainly didn’t dissapoint.  Thank you to Dr. Scott and Kristen Stoll for a wonderful afternoon, and for all the vendors and people who helped make it possible.  There was amazing food and great conversation, and everyone had a fantastic time.

Starting tomorrow, we will be starting another contest, so keep your eyes out!  Don’t forget, you can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Foursquare.

Here at Hackman’s, we’ve been enjoying the beautiful weather and getting ready for the Easter chicks to join us at the store.  They should be joining us the week before Easter.  Here are some of the cuties we had last year:

We will be sharing updates on the chicks to let you know when they hatch and when you can come see them at the store.  If you have kids, or know someone who does, we recommend that you pick up the new Veggie Tales DVD while you’re at it!

Right now we’re getting ready for our Immersion Day tomorrow from 9 AM- 3:30 PM.  We’re so excited to have Dr. Stoll and his wife in here to talk about nutrition and loving your body the way God intended.  We will also be providing a catered lunch.  We encourage you to check out this great video by Dr. Stoll:

If you can’t join us, you can purchase his Fully Alive! Book and Kristen Stoll’s cookbook here at the store.

Make sure to join us on Twitter!  A little birdie told me we might be holding a contest on there.  Tweet, Tweet!

Thanks to everyone who joined us for our VBS preview night.  We had a lot of fun, and learned a lot of ways to help children connect with God.  Don’t forget, we put a discussion board on our Facebook page for VBS leaders to share stories, find props, and talk about anything VBS related.  You can find the link on the left-hand side of our page.

Many of you have noticed the changes at our store recently, with the new event center, the chapel, and the promotions we have been running.  We’re really excited about the changes, and we have a couple new changes to announce as well.

Hackman’s is now on Foursquare!  Foursquare is a GPS based mobile app that allows you to “check-in” when you visit a location.  The first time you check-in at Hackmans, you will unlock a special for a free laser engraved pen with any purchase.  Just show the unlocked special to one of our employees, and we will engrave your free pen while you wait.

Our new website should hopefully be up within the next week or two, and we have a new logo that we’re rolling out as well. 

We’d love to hear your feedback on all these exciting new changes.  If there are any specials events that you would like to see Hackman’s do, we’d love to hear your suggestions!  Our new chapel in the store is also complete.  It is a great place for a small group, or to sit and pray.

Don’t forget- you can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Foursquare!

Thank you everyone for coming out on Tuesday!  The attendance was fantastic, and Dr. Stoll’s message was truly inspiring.  Eating the foods that God provided for us is a great way nourish both the body and soul, and a perfect way to start off the new year.  For those of you who were unable to join us, or if you would like to see Dr. Stoll again, we are hoping to have him back again in the future.  We’ll let you know as soon as we have more information.  We have copies of Dr. Stoll’s book here at the store, we recommend picking one up for yourself or a loved one.

This also marked the first event in our new event center!  We are all very excited about this addition to our store, and will be featuring meany more events in the months to come.  We’d love to hear what you think about the new store setup and the new eveent center.

Our next upcoming workshop is a series of men’s bible studies led by Mr. Richard Parks.  The 17th will be a preview of the movie “Courageous” and Opening Thoughts.  On January 24 and 31, Richard will focus on insights on the movie, and how to conduct a bible study for men in your home church.  We ask that you please register for this event.  You can view the movie trailer here:
