Making a store more exciting

 

    We are having a tent sale that we started over Labor Day weekend and runs through the next couple of weeks. The purpose of the tent event is to stir things up a little bit around here and get the sales guys excited about something. We have kind of felt like things had been really dead and boring around here lately, so we decided to put together this used tent event.

 

     Here's what we have done to liven the place up so far: We put a huge tent on our used car lot with banners and balloons, we bought tons of food and drinks for both customers and our sales guys, we created a "wheel of love" that every customer that purchases a used car gets to spin, and we put together a pretty aggressive spiff program for the sales guys. The wheel pays out tons of prizes that are paid for against the gross of the deal so there is technically no cost attached to each prize. Our goal is to do this whole thing for a relatively cheap cost but still make it fun at the same time.

 

     The only issue is that I still feel like things aren't near as exciting around here as I was hoping. Does anyone have any ideas above and beyond the ones that I mentioned that would help liven this place up over the next 2 weeks? Keep in mind that I don't have tons of money to throw at this promotion): Let me know what you guys think...
