Today, we here at The Hundreds are thankful for YOU, our fans, our customers, our supporters… the blog readers, the Twitter followers, the Facebook fans… We thank YOU, the guy who’s been down with us since 2003, the girl who’s wondering if we’ll ever bring TENS back, the bored internet browser who’s on this blog for the very first time reading this, the broken-hearted stalwart ynoT? fan club, the ones who’ve watched Scotty grow up from a teenage lawn gnome to the world’s first Jewish Satanist… The Hundreds is thankful that in a troubled half-decade of a spiraling economy, our brand is still thriving, still relevant, still affecting youth culture, and still able to live out its dreams while paying the rent. I want to personally thank all of you who religiously check the blog every morning. The upkeep on this thing is a lot harder than it appears, and sometimes while I’m sitting at my kitchen table at 2 in the morning staring at a blank screen, face melting all over my keyboard, pillows calling me from a warm bed, I can fail to recognize that you’re on the other side of the screen, giving me your time and attention, which is the most valuable thing in the world.
So, Thank You. To show our appreciation, our annual Black Friday sale continues at our 4 stores, beginning at midnight tonight. This is one of my favorite times of the year, where we get to meet the real diehards who are down for the cause and have trekked in from all ends of the earth to partake in The Hundreds’ feast. This year, Ben Hundreds will hold down THLA on Rosewood, but I will be over at The Hundreds Santa Monica, watching over our inaugural run at the sale (If you’re in L.A., smart, and remember how things wind up on Rosewood on Black Friday, you’ll head over to the westside. Trust me.). SF heads, say whatup to Micah, Quinn, Tons, and Bryan at The Hundreds San Francisco. And The Hundreds New York is an animal of its own. You’ve got NA, Mone, Justin, and the rest of the gang holding down the East Coast for The Hundreds.
