What In The World Is BOGO?

Posted by – Dale Mathes, Code Enforcement Officer

BOGO?  Is it a new video game?  Is it a newly formed Third World country?  Is it a texting acronym?  Actually, that last answer is closest … BOGO means “buy one, get one.”  Often it’s “buy one, get one free” or “buy one, get one half-off.”

A famous company that regularly practices BOGO is JoS. A. Bank Clothiers.  You’ve heard their radio and TV ads where they announce “buy one sport coat, get another for half price.”  They have even had some sales where one can purchase a coat and get shirts and ties for free.

Well, this well-respected menswear store is coming to an outlet mall near you.  It will soon occupy a suite in Great Lakes Crossing Outlets, right down the hall from Bass Pro Shops.  That way you can get your fishing tackle and then walk right down the hallway and pick up some snazzy duds too.

We’d like to welcome JoS. A. Bank to the huge family of retailers at Michigan’s largest outlet mall.  So, look for their logo and be ready to BOGO.
