NEW WEB SITE CATERS TO WOMEN WHO LOVE TO SHOP
Charlotte, NC -- (PRnetwire) -- January 4, 2002 -- Gift World Collection, based in North Carolina announced today the relaunch of their online gift shoppe which is designed by and for women who love to shop! To celebrate their second year online, the company is giving every customer who places an order over $50 through Valentine's Day, a free vacation getaway.
This vacation can be taken in any number of cities, including Las Vegas, NV; Anaheim, CA (Disneyland area); Daytona Beach, FL; Palm Springs, CA; Laughlin, NV; and many more. This 3 day, 2 night getaway is ideal for couples seeking a romantic vacation for Valentine's Day or any special time together. (See terms on web site).
Gift World Collection specializes in engraved wedding and anniversary gifts, plus popular products from Lillian Rose, unique teddy bears, fine jewelry, and even Disney character gifts. The online shoppe provides useful tools such as anniversary reminder service (free), and 24-hour third party customer satisfaction monitoring by ePublicEye.
The company has enjoyed spectacular sales growth during this recent holiday season, and joins the ranks of many successful online-only gift companies which have prospered due to value, selection, and prompt customer service.
Online shopping has become one of the most popular, easy, and convenient ways to shop for gifts. Comscore Networks, which tracks e-tail activity, accurately forecast that shoppers would spend over $10 billion over the 2001 holiday season through online stores. America Online said that its members spent $11 billion online during the fourth quarter of 2001, up 72 percent from last year.
What makes the company unique is its focus on "down home" values and personal service. "When I started the company," said Gift World Collection president Sandra Ewing, "I could barely copy-paste on my computer. By reading several books, and figuring it out, I pushed forward and learned the tools necessary to sell products online."
Ewing adds that the start-up phase was hard. "It took some time to learn where to advertise, what products to offer -- that people actually wanted -- and to add new features, but I'm very pleased that I have a number of repeat customers who seem very pleased with what I'm trying to do with the company."
Although the company was launched to serve "Women who love to shop," Ewing notes that in reality they serve just as many male customers who are actually buying gifts for their female partners.
The company, based in Charlotte, NC, was founded in 2001 by Ms. Sandra Ewing, a divorced mother who wanted to work at home, and chose to start an online gift service which caters to people like her: women who love to shop, and who enjoy quality products, and value.
