Why Buy From Us
We realize that with so many stores online, it can be hard to choose one over another – especially when every store promises the same thing (great service, guaranteed lowest prices, no sales tax etc etc) and many carry the same products. We would love for you to choose us over the others and here’s why we think you should and hope you will:
We follow the golden rule –we treat you like we want to be treated.
We do a lot of online shopping. In fact, we do most of our shopping online. (We’d probably do all of our shopping online if we kept a closer eye on the stock levels of our household necessities). Being online shoppers, we know what we like and how we want to be treated by the stores where we shop -- we will treat you like we expect to be treated, always.
We’re friends, not a faceless corporation
We’re two great friends who have been lucky enough to develop a great business. We hope to turn you into a friend too.
We’ll do our best to make sure you’re happy.
Don’t you wish everyone would do this?
We’ll continue to personally select products we believe you’ll love now and for years to come.
Like we said, we want you to be happy. We think the first step towards making you happy is to only sell fantastic products that are worth the price.
We’ll give you the best price we can.
We know most buying decisions are made based on price so we have set our prices as low as we possibly can. We check the price of our products in the marketplace and will match those prices if we can. If we cannot, we remove the item from our store. If another store happens to have a product you want at a lower price, please let us know. If we can match it, we will be happy to do so as a courtesy to you.
We might try to make you laugh.
We will provide you with the most sophisticated shopping experience we can but we think we can do that and help you have a little fun too. Well, we hope we can. We have heard that some people don’t think we’re that funny. We don’t understand that but you can let us know later (but just remember – we’ll be friends by then).
We don't charge sales tax!
So no one pays sales tax except for Ohio residents. We just had to throw that in.
