Replacements offers customers latest holiday trends and shopping alternatives this Black Friday
GREENSBORO, N.C., November 21, 2007 - Those looking for the latest trends to deck the halls this holiday season need go no further than the experts at Replacements, Ltd.
“The day after Thanksgiving is not only the busiest shopping day of the year, it also traditionally signals the start of holiday decorating,” says Replacements’ showroom/museum manager Keith Winkler. “Aside from having thousands of ornaments for Christmas and Hanukkah, our design team has advice on the hottest colors for this season and decorating tips for 2007, including flipping your tree upside down. This may sound crazy, but we can show folks how to save space with this growing trend. We also have tips on ways to spruce up your home using pieces of your china or other things you already have around the house that you may not have thought about using.”
Shoppers can find great ideas and unique gifts at Replacements’ main showroom or the company’s satellite store opened specifically for the holidays at Four Seasons Town Centre.
“The majority of customers we see in our showroom are primarily travelers who come from other areas and see us as a destination attraction,” says founder and CEO Bob Page. “We opened our second store to make it more convenient for Piedmont-Triad shoppers to get to know us who in the past might have been hesitant to drive out to our main facility.”
While thousands of customers will make purchases either at Replacements’ two stores or over the phone this Black Friday, even more will shop on-line as part of the company’s growing global business. Earlier this year, Internet Retailer magazine ranked Replacements as the 174th largest e-retailer in the United States based on the company’s 2006 web sales. Replacements.com features more than 800,000 images and receives nearly 2.5 million visits and almost 25 million page views each month.
