Tomorrow, Great Escape will reduce all Elvis merch by 30 percent to commemorate the King's 1977 death and the Escape's 30th anniversary.
Runs Aug. 16-31.
From Great Escape:
Yes, two major pop culture events happened 30 years ago this summer: THE GREAT ESCAPE first opened its doors for business in Nashville, while 200 miles down the road in Memphis, ELVIS PRESLEY left the building for the last time. The King never shopped at The Great Escape (uh, that we know of, anyway...) but his impact on our business and culture has been steady for three decades now. So in celebration of these two big happenings of 1977 (and in a gesture we assume would make Colonel Tom smile), The Great Escape announces its latest 30th Anniversary sales event:
From August 16 through the end of the month, all ELVIS merchandise will be a kingly 30 PERCENT OFF regular prices! This sale includes collector's vinyl LPs and 45s, CDs, movies, posters, toys, books, magazines and more; basically, if it says "Elvis"—it's on sale! Yes, The Great Escape knows how to Take Care of Business in a flash: TGE & TCB, baby!

And any Great Escape customer who shops in a jumpsuit and full sideburns will receive a coupon for a free fried peanut butter and banana sandwich. Thank yuh... thank yuh vurry much.
