Membership 2019

I doubt we’ll get retrospective patches and you’ll have to wait for 30 years for your first. This is my 28th year and I’ve received nothing either.


#454

You’ll get one when you get to 30 years.


#455

are you saying you don’t get a 30 year patch until you’ve been a member for 30 years?

interesting.


#456

We joined up the same year. It is sent out when you hit a 5-year milestone.

Worth checking with the club that they have you as the correct year joined. Think they switched systems a few years back and a few got mixed up. They had me down joining in 2002 and my dad 2 years later (Don’t know how they came up with that). Clearly my dad was way before me and I started in 1991


#457

Awwwww, but I want it nowwwwwwwwwwww.


#458

Who was asking for that Barnz?


#459

Bombershop closed on weekends now ? @Catherine_Lio ?? Was gonna head over on Saturday but google machine said is closed on weekend :no_mouth:


#460

Heya!

Doesn’t seem like it currently:

The Bomber Shop Business Hours:

Monday: 9am - 5pm

Tuesday: 9am - 5pm

Wednesday: 9am - 5pm

Thursday: 9am - 5pm

Friday: 9am - 5pm

Might be worth asking them on twitter if they plan to be open on a Saturday any time soon: https://twitter.com/EFC_BomberShop

I think its a huge oversight not having it open on weekends.

you’re probably losing out.


#462

I tend to agree, I’ll just order guernsey online but wanted to suss out the other gear.
■■■■■■ hard for me to get there during the week :cry:


#463

Huge oversight? Or historical data says not worthwhile?


#464

its A shop front that’s closed on weekends. You tell me?


#465

No you tell me. :wink:


#466

#467

It’s a shop front in a sporting club not operating on weekends, and not part of a shopping centre/strip. You tell me?


#468

I think this is the key bit. Unless the sales person is doing other stuff when it’s sans customers, it’s going to be hard to justify.

Isn’t there a good range of the Essendon gear for sale at the matches?


#469

Other than the occasional player wandering into the gym or the cleaners or whatever the place is pretty much a ghost town most weekends. Obviously if there’s training on it makes sense to open up, but without training or an event they’d be serving the tumbleweeds most of the time.


#470

I can honestly not remember the last time I went to any store for clothing or apparel. Everything I order is online these days.
For me having a good online catalogue showcasing all the wares is the key


#471

I find, particularly with club gear, when they change suppliers, sizes tend to change a bit.


#472

Maybe it’s not the size of the gear that changes?
