Austin-based Tiff’s Treats, which already has 10 DFW locations including Fort Worth and Arlington, is best-known as a cookie-delivery company. And oh, what soft, gooey cookies they can be.
But when it holds one of its grand-opening “flash sale” events, people get in line to pick up cookies. Early. According to the Tiff’s website, when the Arlington store opened on July 22, people lined up as much as 26 hours in advance on a day when the high temperature was around 100 degrees. And 1,300 dozen cookies were sold that day.
So the simultaneous 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Sept. 23 grand-opening celebrations at stores in Southlake and Lewisville — when the weather will presumably be more pleasant (although there is some rain in at least one long-range forecast) — should be a big deal.
At both locations, cookies will be available for $5 a dozen (limit six dozen per person, and you need to be in line by 91 p.m. to get them at that price), with proceeds benefiting the Cook Children’s Health Foundation and supporting the hospital’s Creative Artist in Residence Programme.
Each grand opening will benefit Cook Children’s, and Tiff’s fans can enter something called the “Southville Challenge.” Here’s the challenge: Go to both event. If you make it to both, you’ll get a wristband at each. Two wristbands will earn you a tote bag with a $25 gift card insider. Post a photo of both wristbands on social media, and you’ll be entered in a drawing for a new iPad.
Devotees of Tiff’s Treats grand opening events – always a morning packed with fun, surprises, gifts and cookies – will notice something new: Head to both Southlake and Lewisville on Sept. 23, and you can be entered to win in a special contest called the “Southville Challenge.” Participants will be given a wristband at each event. Collecting a wristband from both events will earn participants a tote bag with a $25 gift card inside. Posting a photo on social media wearing both wristbands enters participants in a drawing to win the grand prize, a brand new iPad.
But wait, there’s more! The first 40 people in line at either store will win a $100 Tiff’s Treats gift card. All others in line before 9 a.m. will receive a $10 gift guard. Buy a box of cookies, and you can enter a drawing to win free Tiff’s Treats cookies for a year. Bring a new, unwrapped stuffed bear to donate to the Cook Children’s PrayerBear program will receive a $5 gift card.
Theoretically, it wouldn’t be that hard to make both openings. The Southlake store is at 1221 E. State Hwy 114 No. 150, near the intersection of 114 and North Carroll Avenue, in the same center as Chuy’s, Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles, etc. The Lewisville location is a 12-mile zip down the freeway at 755 E State Hwy 121, Suite B-150.
As the delicious aroma of fresh-from-the-oven cookies and brownies fills the air at the new stores, guests can enjoy festivities and chances to win prizes. Get there early: the first 40 people in line (18 or older) at either location at the grand opening Sept. 23 will win a $100 Tiff’s Treats gift card. All others in line by 9 a.m. will receive a $10 gift card. Guests who purchase a box of cookies at the grand opening can also enter in a drawing to win free Tiff’s Treats cookies for a year! Anyone who brings a new, unwrapped stuffed bear to the event to be donated to Cook Children’s PrayerBear program will also receive a $5 Tiff's Treats gift card.
