Wheew, it’s been a long hot summer over here at Jackalope!
We’ve stuck to a pretty strict regiment of waking up late, feasting on alfalfa and baby carrots brought in by the oh-so demanding customers, and keeping an eye out of danger that has yet to materialize… so far.
Yeah, it’s been a tough one. And as the weather cools and the rains come, we’ll be cutting our hours back even further, in accordance with our union contract, which is up for renegotiation at the end of the year. We’ll be pushing to limit our daily appearances to three besides meal times, plus a 6.7% increase in foodstuffs and more paid vacation.
We’re asking for your help in pressuring management for our own home theater with full surround sound and HD flat screens with TiVo. Hey, it’s Football season and we got a employee pool going! If we get a mini-bar and hot-tub, we’ll consent to 23% more photo ops as long as you only get our good side.
So stop on by and we might just let you wait on us!

“Is it an open air market, a high-class furniture store, a local tradition or just plain fun? Yes. It’s Jackalope. How best to describe this retail fun fest? If you set a group of leprechauns loose in the desert to design their own strip mall this is what they might give you.
You don’t just drop by Jackalope; it’s a destination. There’s planning involved. Hat, water, sunscreen and carrots. (You’ll see.)
A jackalope proper is a mysterious, rarely sighted creature, a large rabbit with antelope horns on its head. You can believe the trail-fatigued ranch hands who claim to have seen them or you can buy into the you-must-have-seen-a-bunny-with-Shope-papillomavirus-growths but either way your curiosity is piqued. Likewise expect your curiosity to be on duty at Jackalope. Start with the furniture warehouse. It’s stocked with pieces crafted in Mexico, Thailand and Indonesia so there’s an exotic but cohesive pattern of carved wood, fabricated metal, animal motifs and fanciful designs. (continued)”
The world is a crazy place. And in our nation especially, things are changing every day. So amid all the chaos and uncertainty, isn’t it nice to know that some things are still just as dependable as always?
Jackalope is pleased to be one of these comfort zones — a refuge from the ever-changing social and economic climate. It began as a different kind of store focused on offering the widest range of local and internationally purchased merchandise around and has stuck to that goal ever since. If you’re looking for some semblance of the good life, look no further than your nearest Jackalope location.
