Replacements, Ltd. gears up for busy Black Friday
and Cyber Monday
GREENSBORO, N.C., November 18, 2009 - Tired of the same old crowded ‘Day after Thanksgiving Sales’ at the local malls? Black Friday marks great holiday shopping at Replacements, Ltd.! The world’s largest supplier of old and new china, crystal, silver and collectibles offers one-stop shopping for special gifts and decorating accessories.
“Many people think of us for their tabletop needs and don’t realize that we have thousands of ornaments, decorations and special gifts for Christmas and Hanukkah,” says Replacements’ Showroom Manager Keith Winkler. “Shoppers can browse collectibles to collegiate/professional sports keepsakes to one of the area’s largest selections of silver and find unique gifts even for the person who seems to have everything. Our staff can offer great ideas to fit any budget.”
While the company anticipates Black Friday will be hectic, Replacements believes Cyber Monday will mark one of the busiest days of the year for its growing internet business. In recent years, the Monday following Thanksgiving has been designated nationally as the kick off to the online holiday shopping season.
“Last year our Cyber Monday business grew nearly 20 percent over the previous year, so without a doubt this day is becoming a big part of our holiday season,” says Jack Whitley, senior vice president of e-commerce. “Due to a disciplined approach and tight focus on our Web business, our internet sales continue to grow annually and our business is also becoming more global.”
Replacements recently implemented a significant search upgrade to Replacements.com, marking a substantial improvement in navigating the company’s nationally recognized online retail site.
