Hard Sixes - Advertising and club discount scheme

This is something I've been pushing today, getting in touch with local clubs. To be honest, it's not just for local clubs - anyone who is even just visiting the area and has their membership card with them is entitled. Good for sales, good for the RPG community. Below is the blurb I'm using:

'As we’ve just opened and we’re looking to support local gaming clubs as best we can, we'd like to extend an offer to clubs and it's members - buy anything in the shop and get a 10% discount as long as you have your club membership card with you. This offer extends to all members of all clubs and covers all the products in the shop. It does not apply to purchases on the website or Ebay.

We're at HARD SIXES, Units 42-43 Inshops, 65 South Parade, Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, B72 1QU, Tel. 0121 354 8600 for more information. Where we are is also known as Sutton Market, and when you walk in through the main doors, go on until the first 'crossroads' and turn right - we're just down there.'

I'm also advertising in the local rags the benefits of RPGs, and the fact that I'm putting on game demonstrations for people who are interested in getting in to the hobby. I'm hoping it'll attract some if not a lot of attention. Below is the mock-up for the advert:
