Specialty retailer Buckle (NYSE: BKE) — along with Atlantic Records and Viva La Rock — announce “Ticket to Style,” a national campaign designed to promote Buckle’s on-trend denim selection and to launch matchbox twenty’s new album “Exile on Mainstream.” A collaborative effort by one of America’s favorite denim destinations and one of today’s most popular bands, “Ticket to Style” allows guests to enter to win a variety of prizes by submitting a denim fit ticket at any one of Buckle’s 365 retail locations or online at www.buckle.com/matchboxtwenty.
Between September 24, 2007 and October 15, 2007, guests who share their favorite denim brands and fits are automatically entered to win a wide array of prizes, including matchbox twenty concert tickets, backstage passes, Buckle gift cards, and the grand prize: a matchbox twenty weekend. The grand prize winner will receive a trip for two to a matchbox twenty concert (airfare, accommodations, and concert tickets), two backstage passes, and a $500 Buckle shopping spree. Following the album release date of October 2, 2007, guests may also buy matchbox twenty’s new, two-CD set “Exile on Mainstream” at a discounted price of $11.99 (retail value: $18.99) with any denim purchase. Buckle will track and report CD sales to Nielsen SoundScan, the sales source for the Billboard music charts.
“The relationship between music and fashion is undeniable. Matchbox twenty is a great partner for us — not only do they connect with our target demographic; their music is a great vehicle for promoting the Buckle brand,” says Cody Kevan, Director of Music Promotions for Buckle.
Offering a unique mix of high-quality, on-trend apparel, accessories, and footwear, Buckle caters to fashion-conscious young men and women. Known as a denim destination, the store carries a wide selection of fits, styles, and finishes from leading denim brands, including the Company’s exclusive brand, BKE.
