Negotiate while shopping to get the best deal.

Friday, October 15th, 2010

Who says that negotiating at the large retail or internet stores is a no- no?

If you are looking to save money and have the time (time is money, you know) then you can score some great deals on your Christmas gifts even if they are not on sale.

Envision this scenario:

You are at one of the major retailers.   You are interested in an item, it may even be on sale and they have either last one or several left.   Among these, you have noticed one whose packaging may be little bit dinged up or the item is the last item and it does not look 100% mint yet still there is nothing wrong with it.  Go ahead, take it to the customer service desk and point out this item’s flaws and ask if you can get an additional discount if you buy it.

If you are shopping online and have time, you can email customer service and ask if the item you are looking to buy will come on sale or if you are planning to buy larger quantity, contact customer service and ask if they have a quantity discount or a discount coupon for buyers who buy more of the same item.

We were receiving similar requests from customers who were purchasing larger quantity of our personalized Christmas stockings or our personalized photo ornaments.   When a customer emailed us or phoned us with a similar request, we have issued a special coupon to accommodate them.

After all, everyone loves the volume buyers!   Now we have automated this process to reward the customers who buy more.  We have created automatic volume discounts for larger orders on our Personalized Christmas Stockings!

Buy More – Save More Discounts

Everyone loves this program.  We love to reward the customers who buy more in a single transaction with additional discount.

  • Orders over $50 receive 5% Quantity Discount
  • Orders over $75 receive 7% Quantity Discount
  • Orders over $100 receive 10% Quantity Discount
  • Orders over $150 receive 12% Quantity Discount
  • Orders over $200 receive 15% Quantity Discount

This discount is applied at the checkout on the current order and other coupons can be also redeemed on top of this discount. So you can combine our Quantity Discount with other store coupons or promotions in our store.  As soon as you add products to your shopping cart and the value exceeds US$50 or more, you will see the Quantity Discount applied.  This discount is calculated on the total product price, shipping and taxes do not contribute to qualify for the Quantity Discount.

Christmas shopping on a budget

Saturday, March 28th, 2009

It may be more difficult for a shopper to find a large selection of Christmas stockings or Christmas ornaments this year.  It takes some planning to get your Christmas shopping done without stress and without breaking your bank.  Many major retailers are placing their holiday orders with caution now and this will probably result in a lesser selection of Christmas decorations on the market for 2009 season.  According to this article :

Factories abroad “are on edge,” said Josh Green, chief executive of Panjiva, which tracks U.S. Customs data on shipments by global suppliers to the United States. One in four major Chinese manufacturers shipped less than half as much to U.S. customers in November through January than they did a year earlier, he said.

Determined not to repeat last year’s holiday season, when retailers amassed so much stock they offered rampant discounts to clear it out, they are leaning toward more practical and lower-priced items.

And they’re cutting holiday inventory 5 percent to 10 percent from last year’s levels and perhaps 20 percent at luxury stores, said Craig R. Johnson, president of consulting group Customer Growth Partners.

Call us crazy but we are doing the exact opposite, we are ordering more Christmas items  and in larger quantities than ever to offer our personalized Christmas stockings  at the best price possible, without suffering from inventory shortages.

Early Bird gets the worm! In our store, the best selection of Christmas stockings is always between July and the end of November.  That’s when we bring in fresh inventories and are stocked well for the upcoming holiday season.  As everyone begins to shop, some of our items sell out, no matter how many we bring in – so if you see a Christmas stocking you like, grab it right away.

Christmas Shopping on a BudgetYou will see most discounts and best promotions during the off-season : from January through July.  The closer to Christmas, the busier we get and as we reach our capacity in personalizing and shipping our Christmas Stockings and Christmas Ornaments, we are not able to provide additional discounts and sales because we would not be able to keep up with the demand and ship on time.

So if you find a Christmas stocking or personalized Christmas ornament in our store during the off-season and want to save money, it is a good idea to make the purchase right away.  You will avoid the stress of Christmas rush and most likely score the best price of the season.  You are invited to preview our large selection of Christmas Stockings on Sale.

christmasworld show

Stocking Factory booth at christmasworld 2009Back from the christmasworld show which was held in Frankfurt, Germany in February 2009. This is THE SHOW for all Christmas oriented manufacturers and distributors if you want to expand and maintain your presence in European market.

We had a great show! We exhibited our velvet Christmas stockings wholesale which we make in our European design studio. Most interest came from United Kingdom, Italy and naturally: Germany. We also exhibited out line of custom logo christmas ornaments which were a huge hit as many other manufacturers and distributors thought that an ornament with their logo would be a great compliment to their existing product lines.

Naturally we also mingled with other Christmas stocking manufacturers and did some wholesale sourcing so we can bring our customers new Christmas stocking designs for 2009. We should be bringing those new inventories in early summer 2009. Some of our new items will be included in our� 2009 wholesale Christmas stockings selection.

Stocking Factory Booth at christmasworld 2009 Frankfurt

The cost of participating at the show (especially international) can get quite high : think thousands of dollars for booth space, air fare and hotel rooms. But we have used our inhouse talent to dress up the booth ourselves. We have a large format Summa printer inhouse. Using our graphics artist’s talent, we have designed eye catching graphics for the booth walls and printed them on vinyl. Then we simply rolled up the vinyl into a tube and our whole decoration booth fit into a poster tube. We knew you cannot permanently attach / nail anything to the walls at the exhibit hall, that’s why using white vinyl that sticky on the back side (think of the material they make bumper stickers from) was a way to go. When we got to the show, we peeled just about 1 foot worth of backing on the top and stuck the strips to the wall, leaving the rest of the backing on. We used 2 sided tape to tack on the strips and made sure they are aligned well. The end result was awesome (if you are on a budget). At the end of the show we have carefully peeled the wall vinyl off, used wax paper on the top sticky area and rolled our walls back up so they can be reused on our next show. We have decorated 20 feet of booth wall for under $750. Although we do not do booth graphics for living, our graphics and print artists are available from January through July, they get very busy during Christmas holiday season. So if you need help with your booth design and production let us know.
