Didn't see this posted anywhere - code is Hail18.  Also buy stuff from Mgoblog store (HTTV!) and support our friends.

Probably okay to send this promo code to your brother who is also an alumni member (even if he didn't re-up this past year). 

Putting it out on the web, not great, since its quite possible the AAUM negotiated something specific with MDen and they can't handle the capacity a public promotion would net. This is the sort of thing that makes future AAUM promotions not possible.

There certainly will be some folks that miss it for nostalgic reasons - that Moe's isn't there - but the bottom line is this was not, from a business perspective, something new," Hirth said. "That location has not been viable as a standalone store for quite a while. 

"Moe's is one-tenth of the size of the big (M Den) store on State Street," Hirth added. "The overwhelming response was that people aren't walking around the corner to go to that Moe's store, and they haven't for years. It didn't matter if the M Den owned it, if the VanDeWege family owned it or if Underground Printing owned it."

Here's a bright idea - shrink the size of the M Den around the corner, and use what was in that extra space in the Moe's location, and rename it in big letters "THE MDEN AT MOE SPORT SHOPS".

Done. We all get to be happy. No reason for the MDen to not accomplish what they wanted to with their business plan (increasing size and focus on Detroit/Briarwood locations, and decreasing the overwhelming presence on State Street), and we all get to keep the Moe's nostalgia while purchasing MDen products there. Simple.
