On our Web site, JustPetStrollers.com, we've been claiming "over 8,000 pet strollers sold," and we thought we were still coming up on 10,000. We were looking forward to celebrating when we hit the big number.
Well, we just checked our records and found we've sold 11,475 pet strollers! My wife and I are proud we hit that figure, but we're a little disappointed we missed out on our celebration.
If that sounds like a lot for a small business, perhaps it is, but we run our physical and online stores with just one full-time person and several part-timers. We run a tight ship, but we still find we can get our pet stroller orders out within a business day almost all the time. (Customers always comment on how quickly they receive the pet strollers they order.)
Even if we missed the 10,000th sale, we'll still celebrate a little. Here's a code for you to use on our site to save $10 on any pet stroller over $100. The coupon is only valid through June 1, 2008. The code is:
petstroller10kAs long as we're bragging, we're also proud of our customer ratings. To date we've received 535 ratings, and 485 of these have been Excellent! Another 40 were Good. (We've had just 10 ratings that weren't Excellent or Good--we try to make everyone happy, but you know how hard that is to accomplish all the time.)
We, we hope you'll visit our online pet stroller store, use the discount code, and help push us over 12,000 pet strollers. Maybe we'll pay more attention and will celebrate when we hit that milestone!
