We just put up a new main image on the homepage of our website
and it should stay there until August 2006. Then we will get another special photo taken and switch the image. Towards the end of the year, we plan on coming out with a new design again and we will inform our loyal patrons and site visitors of that change as well.
Speaking of staying informed, if you haven't signed up for our monthly newsletter, please do so by visiting this link
. We do not bombard your email boxes with constant emails, so not to worry. We send out a nice newsletter to our subscribers once a month. This newsletter contains special offers as well as news about the leather industry at large. Plus, it contains interesting tips on leather care and cleaning. So check it out by subscribing here.
We are all anxious for Mother's Day, Father's Day and graduation (ordering deadlines are available here
by the way). We at CLC even had a blog entry
about these events. However, we ship out a lot of personalized leather gifts for soon to be brides and grooms as well. Sometimes, they order for themselves but mostly they order for the groomsmen (like our simple leather dopp kit
with water resistant inside lining) and / or the bridesmaids (like our mini jewelry case
which comes in a plethora of colors including wildberry). We have a variety of wedding gift ideas to satisfy all budgets and some wedding gift suggestions will suffice as anniversary gifts too. So check out our Unique Gift Ideas
page and let us know what you think.
More monogramming options are soon to be added on our site as well because we have received ample requests from valuable customers to have a "Full Name" monogramming option, even if it means paying a bit more. By the way, we have one of the lowest monogramming charges online and we would like to have it stay that way! There are some sites charging exorbitant prices for monogramming up to three initials (like $18 for example)! Not us. We have a flat $5.95 for up to three initials and the name option will be slightly more. So stay tuned!
If all of us can do just a bit more to prevent environmental abuse and pollution, then the world would definitely become a better place. Individuals and businesses alike must pledge to make their daily routines a little more environmentally friendly.
And it does not take much on our part. We can still use our cell phones, PDA's, laptops and other hi-tech devices. However, just charging them in our cars or using a solar powered charger helps to cut down on electricity, thereby adding to environmentally friendly methods.
to take a pledge to do your part to save the environment, one step at a time, one person at a time. Let's make a healthy environment a reality for us and our generations to come.
We at CLC try to cut down on waste as much as possible and encourage recycling methods in the workplace as well as at home. We used environmentally friendly dyes to color our leather products (vegetable tanned)
and our packing materials are made from recycled plastic, paper or eco-friendly materials.
Happy and Safe Shopping,
We are in the news! Click here
to see our article in the April 7th, 2006 edition of the Grand Island Dispatch paper. One of the URL's is incorrect and should be www.IslandShipCenter.com
. The second URL is correct.
We have truly been encouraged and impressed at the amount of support and kind words that have been given to us since our store opening
last week! We thank you kindly and hope to live up to your expectations!
We do carry boxes and packaging supplies, along with gift bags and bows.
As those who have come into our showroom already know, we DO NOT charge exorbitant prices on our shipping supplies. We are here to provide a convenience to the neighborhood. Thus, we do not charge surcharges on our FedEx Express and FedEx Ground rates, like most other FASC's (FedEx Authorized ShipCenters) do!
So come in to visit us if you are living in this area or visiting the Niagara Falls area. We are only 10 minutes from Niagara Falls, USA!
Whereas other companies have gone from being brick and mortar businesses to adding their online presence by increasing web sales, we have gone the opposite route!
After successfully operating CLC
as a sole online operation, we have opened our leather boutique and FedEx Authorized ShipCenter
to the public today!!!
Our three days of grand opening celebrations continue until Friday, April 7th, 2006, with complimentary breakfast being offered between 8-10 AM and a FREE leather gift for the first 200 customers! Come in and check out the selection of unique leather gifts for the upcoming occasions, namely Mother's Day, Father's Day and Graduations, not to mention the birthdays, weddings and anniversaries that occur during these next months.
