The value-driven chain used over 12,000 products to create the display in less than 24 hours at the world-famous Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, Calif.
CITY OF COMMERCE, Calif., September 10, 2018 - Today, 99 Cents Only Stores celebrates their latest feat of becoming the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title holder for the Largest packaged product number. In a fast-moving production that took less than 24 hours, 100 people and over 12,000 products on the field of the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, Calif., the retailer created a gigantic 18,200 square foot “99” display in celebration of their inaugural #99Day customer appreciation event. As the sun rose above the world-famous stadium in the most picturesque scene, a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS adjudicator verified the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title and presented the 99 Cents Only Stores with the official certification for the Largest packaged product number.
“We wanted to showcase the types of brand names, fresh produce, and seasonal products available at the 99 in a big way - and what bigger way is there than setting a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title,” said Jack Sinclair, CEO of 99 Cents Only Stores. “Everyone deserves extreme value and we're thrilled to be part of this unique occasion, giving back to the community, and celebrating our customers.”
