      Keep It Alive: A FREE Succulent & Locally Grown Contest

      Keep It Alive: A FREE Succulent & Locally Grown Contest

      Spend $100 on KOA and win $200! (Eventually.)

      We’ve been searching far and wide for the best metaphor-laden promo we could find and... we finally found it! Right down the street at the O2AA Plant Nursery no less. 

      It’s no secret that local shops here in Oakland have been struggling lately, but in the face of the double whammy of a pandemic and Amazon, they’re still here. That’s resilience.

      You know what else is resilient? Succulents. Like the platter full of them we just picked up at O2AA! And as of right this second, the first 25 people to spend over $100 on KOA will get one for free delivered straight to their door!

      But that’s not the good part. Sure, if we were some fly-by-night operation, maybe that would be enough metaphor to cram into a little promo. We might be able to call it good and sleep well at night. But we’re going to take this one as far as we can.

      You see, this isn’t so much a promo as it is a contest. Because you, the community, are going to take these succulents under your wing and nurture them. They may be resilient, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be bigger and healthier with your help.

      Each one will have a tamper-proof tag marked with your order number and whoever boasts the BIGGEST succulent once May 4th rolls around (Oakland’s birthday, when we unleash even more pro-local fun!), will receive a $200 gift card to spend on any of the 30,000+ items from local shops found on Keep Oakland Alive!

      We know what you’re thinking. Do we all get the same breed of succulent? Are they all starting from the exact same size? Is it going to be fair? Of course not. That’s ridiculous. What part of growing a local retail store in 2021 is fair?! C’mon! Pay attention to the metaphor. BUT, we can promise you that it will be completely random. Then it’s all up to your (hopefully) green thumb from there.

      Bottom line. Go to Keep Oakland Alive, spend $100 before 25 other people do, get a free succulent delivered to your door, and nurture that thing like crazy.

      P.S. We’re also accepting expository essay submissions re: the aforementioned metaphor. Send those to info@keepoaklandalive.com
