READING, MASSACHUSETTS – Lifetime REI member and avid camper Marlie Gallagher is planning ahead. After opting to use this year’s current divided to partially fund the purchase of a new hammock and rain fly, the 29 year old informed cashier Tevin Rodrigues that she loves her dividend and already planned to buy a new camp chair that functions as a rocker with next year’s dividend.
“It’s like I get paid to shop here!” Ms. Gallagher gleefully told Mr. Rodrigues. “I feel so rewarded for being a customer,” she stated as she applied her $46.72 dividend. “Too bad it’s not 2020, when I can finally get one of those folding rockers!”
Mr. Rodrigues dutifully smiled and told her that a lot of people like those rockers, and that he had heard they might be included in the fall sale if she didn’t want to wait until spring.
