Warehouse Warm Up to Welcome Back Power
and Offer Great Deals

East End Main Street will host the first annual Warehouse Warm Up business promotion from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 11.

The West Virginia Power baseball organization will open up Appalachian Power Park’s back gates and give exclusive access to the "Kidz Zone" for all children and their parents who will want to browse the Warehouse District stores and check out the exclusive deals businesses will be offering in the Warehouse District.

“It’s our way of welcoming back the Power for the 2009 season,” said Ric Cavender, East End Main Street program director.

The Power play the first weekend game of the season at 6:05 p.m. that evening. The Power will host a drawing during Warehouse Warm Up for a free four-pack of tickets to the game. In addition, children will have the opportunity to get player autographs and have pictures taken with the Power mascots.Maps of participating Warehouse District businesses, complete with their Warehouse Warm Up special offers, will be available at the East End Main Street table located directly across Smith Street from the back gates of Appalachian Power Park.

“The only way you’ll be able to experience the great deals offered from the Warehouse District businesses and possibly get free Power tickets and autographs is to come down to the Warehouse Warm Up,” Cavender said.
