Easter is almost upon us and this is just a reminder to place your order for your white gloves early.
Every year we see last minute expensive express shipments and by ordering early you can avoid these charges.
Remember, we carry the largest selection of white gloves available for ladies, gentlemen, and children.
The following are a few helpful links:
Reminder: Since the winter weather is still menacing us and your local shops may no longer have gloves in stock, you may want to check out some special pricing on our winter gloves – while supplies last.
Ansell-Hawkeye Glove Company (formerly Hawkeye Glove) closed down last Thursday, May 31st.
Hawkeye Glove was a primary contractor of gloves for the US Military before Ansell acquired the company in 2008 at a reported price of 10.8 million. The closure affects 22 production workers at the Fort Dodge plant and it could affect many more once it closes its other production operations.
Management blamed the plant’s closure on Pentagon budget cuts but in theory this type of glove production which is based on cut-and-sewn gloves probably led to its demise. Ansell’s core production expertise is in dipped disposable gloves and condoms and Hawkeye’s expertise was in leather and cotton glove production.
For me, the writing was on the wall when they stopped making US made Marine Corp white dress gloves
for us in 2009. It’s too bad they shuttered the business before letting us know.
It’s that time of year at Gloves-Online
and we have been frantically shipping orders to meet the demands for parade gloves
for parade units during the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend.
We wish all of you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.
