On October 1, 2017, I completed a soft launch of our new website into a beta test mode. Online ordering and newsletter signup have been temporarily disabled in order to give the team some time to finish checking out the website links and to verify intended functionality. We appreciate your patience and understanding while we complete our testing process. Hopefully, we will have most of the bugs ironed out by November 1st.
I developed the new site part-time in the evenings and on weekends starting in May 2017. As you can probably tell from our blog archives, we had not regularly used the blog feature of our old E-commerce site. This new site design and layout allows our team full control over style and content; and at the same time simplifies the back-end website administration interface. The new site provides a much tighter integration of products and blog content that should provide a more enjoyable and personal shopping experience for our customers. In addition, we have implemented a brand new full service website portal and ordering interface for our business clients that we did not offer before.
We hope to have the new site Grand Opening on or about November 1, 2017; so please keep checking back on our progress. And thanks again for being such loyal followers and customers!
