Since GO Gloves is customer driven and a one-stop shop for great gloves, this year we are proud to announce that we are now an authorized ISOTONER glove retailer. We will add each model as they hit our warehouse – just in time for holiday sales.
As you can expect, we declined to stock the TOTES/ISOTONER line of slippers and boots. After all, we are just glove experts.
We just received our latest shipment of our popular GO Greens® Bamboo Gloves and things have certainly changed.
As many of you already know, the GO Greens Bamboo Gloves were designed to be the best light weight general utility coated work glove on the market. And, be the only environmental friendly work glove, too boot. Mission accomplished.
What we didn’t anticipate is that our warehouse manager had to recruit our office staff to help unload 4 tons of the GO Greens last week.
Gloves have always been the ideal stocking stuffer. After all, it is Winter.
This season our glove sales have been exceptional again. Maybe it’s the weather; maybe the economy is improving but one thing is for real; Winter Gloves are HOT! In fact, we are running out of models well before previous years.
Here’s a few links to help you find the perfect winter glove or gift. And remember, this is the last week for Standard Shipping.
We are going into our 3rd Winter selling season with the Freehand Gloves and they are simply genius. You well know that taking your gloves off to text while outside is pure torture – and totally unnecessary.
That’s why Freehands gloves are perfect. You can choose from several models including leather and the gloves feature finger caps on your index finger and thumb, which you can flip back when your need to access your phone.
Your can always consider convertible mittens but the Freehands Gloves are more functional for texting while using your smart phone.
This week I had the pleasure to meet another Glove Guru who represents one of the best glove companies in the world. (No pun intended for those in the know)
As with any good glove business guy who wants to establish a rapport, he followed up with an e-mail (nice touch).
I found it interesting that his e-mail signature contained some very useful information.
FACT: Each hand contains: 29 major and minor bones, 29 major joints, at least 123 named ligaments, 34 muscles which move the fingers and thumb, 48 nerves and 30 named arteries. Those facts put a whole new perspective on what our products are actually protecting…
I’ve since invited him for lunch when he is in the area again and I’ll make sure he adds cut protection and heat protection issues to his agenda. He knows best, but he is also helping raising the bar with hand protection issues.
I am very pleased to announce that last Friday the 29th; GO Gloves received the prestigious award as a “Top Holiday Seller in 2009” from the management of Amazon.com.
The award certificate states that we were honored for outstanding performance on Amazon.com over the 2009 Holiday Season. We were praised for providing an exceptional shopping experience for Amazon customers and thanked us for our hard work and dedication.
Additionally, GO Gloves ranked among the top of all Amazon Sellers over the 2009 season on the basis of net sales, and customer satisfaction metrics. We also received the highest marks (in other words A+) over this period.
Amazon isn’t the only one happy with our holiday gloves sales. They should have seen what our staff accomplished from our own web site shipping about 2,000 glove orders per day.
