School Store Name

Posted by awagner25 on 100 Points
I am the student manager of my high school's school store. I am responsible for the development of the store and the creation of a marketing plan. Currently we are trying to come up with a new name to help with our rebranding process. Unfortunately my classmates and I are haveing a hard time coming up with a good name and are looking for some good name ideas.

We sell snack and drinks and have an assortment of spirit wear items.

Our mascot is "The Raiders" and our colors are purple and black. we are commonly referred to as Nofo Nation (Nofo being an abbreviation of North Forsyth) and Raider Nation. our stadium and school is called Raider Valley because we sit in valley of sorts.

Thank you for your help! I am looking forward to what you all come up with!

    Okay, I am going to have a go.

    The Nation
    Purple Nation
    Black Nation ... hasn't that been done somewhere??
    Striped Nation ... naff.
    Valley Nation?
    Purple Valley?

    I think you get my drift. It is a sort of inclusive name, inviting.

    My second suggestion is more broad: take the names (every one you get here - including all the ones you don't like) and get everyone who comes to the store to mark their favorite. That will do two things. Firstly it will be what they liked and secondly it means they got to choose it (= inclusivity) and it becomes more theirs.

    Hope this helps Moriarty.
