An 11-year-old boy named Seth got famous for his marketing skills and police are praising him for the same.
The Brigham City police department in Utah received calls from concerned people regarding the child’s lemonade stand as the sign on board says ‘Ice Cold Beer.’
After investigation, police found out that the boy is not selling liquor at all, but ROOT BEER.
Brigham City Police Department shared the picture of the boy on Facebook and wrote, ‘’This young man, in the area of 600 South 200 East, has a twist on a lemonade stand.
Yep, he’s selling beer … ROOT BEER, that is.His marketing strategy has resulted in several calls to the BCPD, but apparently, its paid off as business has been good. ’’
In the photos posted on social media, the boy can be seen holding the signboard and ‘root’ is written in tiny letters above the beer. His strategy has been successful and Seth is selling it for $1.
People are really impressed with the boy’s strategic skills and the post has garnered more than 900 likes with several comments.
One person wrote, ‘’Great catch, young man. Way to. I am 57, I wish that I had done it, first. Never liked, root beer.’’
‘’No different then bars putting up a sign that says free beer really large and under really small it says tomorrow, this kid rocks,’’ wrote another.
His mom Alexis Parker helped him in the campaign and she said, “What better way to get peoples’ attention?”
“I just bought him out,” Deedre Coy Petersen wrote on Facebook. “He’ll be back tomorrow, possibly with a more easy to read “Root” on there. SO many people still stopping to give dirty looks. It was cute and funny. No children were harmed in the selling of this ROOT beer.”
