Wow. I can not believe that we opened our little store back in May and here it is already December, almost entering the New Year. Where does time go??? My business partner and I are so pleased to announce that pinkginger opened to a most receptive audience. We are so thankful to our customers and local merchants in Merrickville for helping us find our way and being so generous with their time and helpful hints. Our retail store launched quietly but with great enthusiasm. Many of our customers have told us the same thing over and over again, “We are so thrilled that pinkginger has opened, the products that you carry have literally changed my skin.” Or “I have so many allergies to phlatates and synthetic fragrances, I love that I can come in pinkginger and not have to turn around and leave the store due to my allergies”. The best comments are, “pinkginger is in a class all of its own, will you please open a store in my town!“.
Our dream is to continue to offer our customers high end luxury organic products in pinkginger stores and on our website. It has truly been a huge learning curve and still is, it has given me a new appreciation for all small business owners and entrepreneurs. We thank everyone who has helped make pinkginger possible. In fact, I will be devoting a blog to those individuals in the upcoming days. We have lots planned and are excited to be introducing new products in 2010 both at our retail location in Merrickville and on our website http://www.pinkgingershop.com.
You will not find any big corporate talk on this blog or our twitter. pinkginger is a small business owned and operated by two Moms of many toddlers. We are passionate about natural, organic personal care products that work. We are passionate about growing pinkginger. We know we will make mistakes but when it comes to customer service we will do OUR VERY BEST to ensure that your shopping experience at pinkginger is second to none. Really, we will. Christine and I will be blogging about the organic skincare, the organic industry and companies that are changing the landscape of the beauty industry. There is a lot out there and we hope to disseminate some of that information for you. We are NOT die-hard only sell ‘certified organic’ products, instead we offer our clients a range of organic, natural, certified organic and products from bio-dynamic farming methods. Every brand, every product has a story to tell. I love nothing more than telling customers how a certain product or regime helped another customer and I encourage all of our customers to share their skincare stories with us.
Every day we learn something new about ourselves, about our store and about our customers. I hope you will enjoy our journey with us. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I answer all questions by e-mail within 24 hours and I respond to all comments, positive and negative.
Enjoy the last few days of 2009.
