It’s that time of year again, when reindeer upon rooftops pause, here comes jolly Santa Claus, and the Lope Shop also decks the halls — with a list of Yuletide specials.

Five days of Christmas at Lope Shop

Monday: $9.99 crew sweatshirts

Tuesday: Wear your ugly sweater and get 20 percent off an ugly sweater.

Next Wednesday: Buy a hoodie and get one free

Thursday, Dec. 3: 20 percent off all Christmas merchandise

Friday, Dec. 4: 50 percent off box sale

Black Friday will have come and gone, but starting Monday the shop on Lopes Way will ring in the holiday season with five days of seasonal specials.

If you’ve been hankering to buy that certain Lope Shop item or hope to fill your holiday list with a host of Lopes garb and gear, mark Monday through Friday, Dec. 4, on your shopping calendar. Each day is dedicated to a different markdown, and a lot of items are new.

“It’s going to be fantastic,” said Shelly Schrimpf, GCU Lopes Shops operations manager. “Our store will be loaded with new merchandise just as the kids are stocking up on gifts for the holidays.”

Have you been craving a crew sweatshirt? No sweat if you pick one up Monday, when they will be priced at $9.99 and come in charcoal, hot pink, black and purple.

This self-explanatory cup is expected to be a hot holiday seller at the Lope Shop.

Are you a fan of the ugly Christmas sweater? Wear one Tuesday and you’ll get 20 percent off several Lope Shop special Christmas long-sleeve T-shirts and sweatshirts in a rainbow of colors. They range in price from $19.99 to $32.99.

“Ugly sweater Tuesday is going to be fun,” Schrimpf said. “We expect to sell a lot of shirts.”

Wednesday’s deal is buy one hoodie for $29.99 and get another free. Shoppers have a choice of two of the garments, purple with the words “Grand Canyon University” or gray with the saying, “We Bleed Purple.”

Is your dog barking for a bow? They'll be on sale, too — the bows, not any dogs.

On Thursday, all Christmas merchandise will be marked 20 percent off, including festive purple tree ornaments for $4.99 and other holiday specials.

Finally, on Friday, the shop will have a 50 percent off box sale. The boxes will contain Lopes wear in various styles and sizes on a first-come, first-served basis.

There are other fun items too, such as dog bows from $8.99 to $10.99, “GCU Girls Rock” purple beverage containers for $19.99, and $9.99 coffee cups that say, “My kid and my money go to Grand Canyon University.”
