Mark your calendars for Thursday, February 12, 2009! If you haven’t heard, the yummiest sub franchise on the planet is now in Winston-Salem. Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches is located on the corner of 4th and Cherry Streets in downtown Winston. This downtown location opened in August and is now geared up for its OFFICIAL Grand Opening Extravaganza! They will be selling subs for $1.00 between the hours of 11am and 3pm on the 12th. $1.00 Subs! Yeah, you heard me – $1.00 Subs! (There are also five locations in Greensboro, and one more by Hanes Mall in WS, but those locations are not offering the dollar subs this time).

I must say that these subs are VERY yummy, and even if the line is long, it moves WAY fast! Now I will tell you this – it may not be the best place for Stay-At-Home moms to hit on this day. It will be crazy crowded and you’ll have to find a parking spot. BUT I wanted to make sure I got this announcement out to all you moms who work in or around downtown Winston, and also ask you tell your hubbies and friends who work in the area to go to Jimmy John’s for the grand opening!

A few tips from a professional Jimmy John’s Sub Lover:
• Check out the menu before you go online at If you want to get the dollar sub deal, you have to choose one of the #1-6 options or the BLT.
• The subs come EXACTLY as they are described on the menu. If you want to modify your sandwich, tell the cashier ASAP! They make the subs so fast that it will be in your hand before you have said, “no mayo.”
• The subs are for IN SHOP only, not delivery. (They will still deliver, but not the dollar deal.)
• The dollar subs are a limit of one per person! Please don’t send an order with your friends, because they are huge sticklers on the one per person rule and it would be so sad to have your friend crying in the sub shop.

Read these rules and follow carefully. Believe me, you don’t want to be the customer who holds up the freaky fast line! Have fun and remember: if you don’t make it to the dollar deal day, JJ’s subs are always inexpensive and yummy, so you can go another day.
