Memorial Day Sale Benefits and Honors Troops


Wholesale Chess is offering a double bonus for customers this Memorial Day. Everyone who places an order $50 or more will receive 5% off. In addition, as a tribute to the United States Military personnel, another 5% of that order will go to soldiers serving overseas. It will be sent in the form of chess sets.

“We have many military personnel who buy chess supplies to use in both combat and non-combat zones,” said Lyndia Graham, manager of Wholesale Chess. “We want to further the number of chess sets available to our troops and this is a great way to do it. We hope to have them delivered by Independence Day (July 4th.)”

“Chess is a great stress reliever in that it takes a person’s mind off their problems while they concentrate on the game. It also offers numerous life lessons,” she said.

“A few years ago, we had one customer in a mid-eastern country that we emailed when their country was under attack to see if they were okay. He emailed back that he was, but that he wished ‘all of life’s battles could be fought over a chess board.’ That really touched me,” Graham said. “If we can promote that idea in any way, it will be a very good thing.”

To be sure the customer discount and the bonus for the troops are applied to an order, a customer must enter the promo code TROOPS in the promo box on the shopping cart page. In addition to the 5% discount and the 5% for the military personnel, a customer can also get free shipping if their order is over $100. Plus, there are many items on sale at deeply discounted prices. The sale will run from May 22 through June 1.

“Whether holiday weekend plans call for traveling or backyard festivities, we hope each of our valued customers will find a moment or two to give thanks for those who have given their all for our great country…and for those who continue to serve and protect our nation day by day,” Graham added.

Wholesale Chess is the #1 Chess Web Store providing chess sets, boards, pieces, clocks, software, DVDs, computers and all other chess equipment to retailers, clubs, schools and chess enthusiasts around the world.
