GREENVILLE, N.C. — The Pirate Club is bringing back the popular “Pirates Supporting Pirates” initiative with added benefits for businesses according to an announcement by Pirate Club Executive Director Ryan Robinson on Wednesday.
“Pirates Supporting Pirates” is a partnership between local businesses and the Pirate Club.
The Pirate Club is unveiling enhanced benefits for “Pirates Supporting Pirates” businesses, including participation in the Pirate Perks program, exposure on ECUPirates.com and all Pirate Club social media channels along with discounted group ticket rates. Pirate Perks provides Pirate Club and Student Pirate Club members exclusive discounts from local businesses which affiliated with the Pirate Club.
“It has been a tough 18 months for our local community and surrounding region,” Robinson said. “Many businesses continue to struggle or are beginning the process of rebuilding and ‘Pirates Supporting Pirates’ will aid in the recovery for all businesses. We still see the ‘Pirates Supporting Pirates’ stickers in windows from the past and felt it was important to restart the program with added benefits.”
