In a previous blog post I discussed the need to change the way I process orders and move away from a made fresh for each customer model to a pre made ready to ship model. The advantage is going forward all orders will ship within 24 to 48 business hours! So, no more waiting 2-4 weeks for your order to ship.
The challenge is I have to make every bottle of perfume ahead of time and as a one person operation that takes a lot of time. So, I had two options either move to a model where I only open the store at specific days of the month and use the rest of the time to build up inventory or keep the store open and when a product is out of stock, it's marked as sold out until I can restock. In the end I decided to do both!
For the month of March, the store will remain closed, while I build up inventory and work on new products. I will reopen in April fully stocked and when a product is out of stock, I will simply mark it as sold out.
I have a lot more exciting news to share with you, including a new YouTube channel. I will go into all the new and exciting changes in more detail in the March newsletter.
