Remember back when your parents and teachers told you “counting is an essential skill to learn”. Sebastian of San Antonio, TX, apparently took that advice to heart.
During a recent visit to the new EcoBox store in the Northwoods Shopping Center, Sebastian was the first customer to correctly guess the total number of new and used boxes in the 1500sqft store. How many boxes would you guess? 500,1000,5000? Sebastian had only minutes in the store, took a sampling, and guessed 11,150 boxes which was the exact total !
This story also has a small victory for those of us who have been wronged by others. According to the boys father, Sebastian had been saving his money for the past year in order to purchase an iPad.
Unfortunately during their recent move, some unscrupulous movers stole the money he had been saving. Down in the dumps, Sebastian thought he would never be able to get an iPad.
However, with a little luck and some great counting skills, Sebastian has managed to thwart his thieves attempt at obtaining a new iPad.
There were over 150 entries from customers to the new San Antonio store, and several people were close, but only Sebastian had the correct guess. EcoBox is giving the top 3 closest guesses a $50 store credit and EcoBox is giving the remaining customers 15% off their next purchase.
Thanks to all the contestants who made our first 2 months in San Antonio a resounding success !
