|ANAHEIM, Calif. (Nov 17, 2003) -- Pacific Sunwear of California Inc. has partnered with Roxy in a promotion that highlights a growing accessories category for one of the biggest girl brands in the country. The Roxy Room Takeover contest offers one lucky online visitor and her best friend the chance to win Roxy room makeovers.
The online promotion begins today and consumers are encouraged to enter the contest at www.pacsun.com. Entries will be accepted up until midnight, Dec. 14, 2003.
In 350 words or less, entrants will have to submit their answer to the question, "Why should you win a Roxy room makeover with your best friend?" Entries will be judged by representatives from PacSun and Roxy and the top three finalists chosen will be posted on the PacSun Web site for two weeks. PacSun's online audience will then have the opportunity to vote for the winner from the three finalists via an online poll.
The Grand Prize is a two-day experience where both friends makeover each other's rooms. A PacSun and Roxy representative will go to the winners' homes to help with the makeovers, incorporating $1,000 worth of Roxy room merchandise in each room. The makeovers will be videotaped for posting on the PacSun and Roxy Web sites.
