In a world where online shopping has become the preferred method, it's good to know which retaliers offer the best experience. In a survey published yesterday, J. Crew has been named the number one online retailer out there. The survey, conducted by StellaService, credits the high rating to a speedy delivery time and outstanding customer service.
Since just last month, J. Crew has sped up their average delivery time by two days. Their customer support-- especially phone support--has been exceptional. The Huffington Post reports that CEO, Mickey Drexler, personally called an upset customer to resolve the customer's issue. How's that for service?!
Beyonce, the fresh face of H&M's 2013 Summer line, is here to usher us in to our newest online shopping addiction, an H&M oline reltail site. Undoubtedly, online shopping is one of the biggest perks of living in the 21st century. Anything you can ever possibly want to buy can be shipped directly to your door without you having to get out of your pajamas. Modern luxury at its finest. You can order anything you want except for H&M’s apparel and accessories, that is. We can’t tell you how many times we’ve forgotten that H&M lacks a United States online shopping site. What gives? Americans, especially those that aren’t in reach of the Swedish company’s almost 300 stores nationwide, deserve the fashionable and affordable clothing direct to their door just as much as their European cousins across the pond.
While the popular Madison Avenue location gets a makeover that benefits in-store shoppers, those who prefer to shop at the click of a finger can now reap the benefits of the store’s newly revamped e-commerce site as well. Just launched on Monday, Barneys.com is full of consumer-friendly features designed to create a “completely dynamic and very emotional experience.”
Secondary to brick and mortar locations in terms of revenue, the e-commerce site is the fastest growing channel and one Barneys sees opportunity to improve and capitalize on for future growth. It’s part of a grand strategic overhaul spearheaded by Barneys CEO Mark Lee. By creating a cleaner aesthetic to highlight featured merchandise, optimizing navigation, and simplifying the online shopping process for registered customers, Barneys hopes to engage loyal online consumers like never before.
It’s that time of year again and as pleasant as the Holiday hype may seem, we inevitably have to face those dreaded shopping malls! If you could avoid the lines, the people, and save a few bucks, online shopping is definitely the way to go these year. Over Black Friday weekend, consumers spent a whopping 52.4 billion dollars, so you can only imagine what those sad empty shelves look like now. We’re going to attempt to lessen that pain and agony you face every time you step foot into that retail-store-mayhem by providing you with a list of extremely savvy cyber sales.
When the weather gets colder, the one thing that doesn't slow down is the shopping. Online shopping becomes the easiest way to buy whatever pops into your head. Plus, you will probably find sales that are exclusively online. Here are a few sites for the guys to stay hooked on.
1. Gilt (gilt.com)
Top notch fashion items 50-75% off daily. It's a different brand on sale everyday starting at 12 noon; but be quick, items sell out in less than a minute. (Sign up is free)
Who doesn’t love a good sale?
Well the people at Tobi surely know this to be true! The San Francisco-based online boutique offers shoppers even more incentive to buy, by offering 30% off all new arrivals every week. (Yes, that's right, EVERY week!)
Every Wednesday, this purveyor of trend-conscious pieces adds new arrivals to their ample inventory and offers them at 30% off regular price for one week only.
Tobi is sure to quickly become a go-to for any fashionista (or fashionisto...they have a great men’s selection as well), carrying such brands as Jeffrey Campbell, CC Skye, Elizabeth and James, Twenty8Twelve, Ella Moss and many, many more.
Though the lure of a sale may have initially drawn you in, there are plenty of reasons to stay as the site also offers the opportunity to discover great pieces from lesser known brands, as well as beauty and home sections.
Be sure to check out the jewelry section for the Fashiontoast x DANNIJO collaboration, sold exclusively by the boutique. With its tribal-inspired silver cuffs, chokers and more, the pieces from this fashion blogger x handmade jewelry design team project are so on-trend and are sure to be gone soon!
And as if you needed yet another reason to add Tobi to your favorites, the site also offers free ground shipping!
