Skokie, IL (PRWEB) March 23, 2008
Dennis and Marla Chorney are holding the grand opening of their new web store, http://www.CrystalFigurineShoppe.com, viewable now by the Internet buying public. After careful product selection and site design, this brand-new web store is ready to display its wares to the online shopping community, offering an exquisite collection of crystal figurines, animal figurines, gemstone birds, and collectible porcelain dolls.
"We were looking for a business that we could do together," explains Dennis, describing how the pair arrived at this point. "We wanted to do something we were both interested in. We've been collecting crystal figurines for about twelve years, so we figured we enjoy collecting, and we wanted to provide an opportunity for other people to collect, as well."
The site has quietly been under construction since November, and now the catalog has been fine-tuned to offer quality merchandise in a number of styles. "If I didn't like the items, they wouldn't be there," assures Dennis. "If it's something I would want, that's the first criterion that I use. I know I should focus on what I think others would want, but if we wouldn't want it, it's not something we would want to carry."
Quality and variety are extremely important at http://www.CrystalFigurineShoppe.com, and the Chorneys aren't limited to just one variety of crystal. "We've secured a source of Austrian Swarovski-made crystal," says Dennis. "We're not just depending upon one source for our merchandise; we're looking at various different sources, and we're going to be constantly looking for new sources and reevaluating them to make sure our customers get the best quality."
To that end, the duo have also opened a blog at http://www.CrystalFigurineShoppe.net, inviting customers to communicate with them directly. "The blog is a source of information for people who are interested in what we're interested in," explains Dennis. "We want to hear what they have to say, because their input is as good as anybody's, and they can possibly put us on to things that we don't know about. We are very critical of the things we do; we want people to enjoy our products as much as we do. We want to share that feeling that we get from our figurines."
To encourage new customers during their grand opening, http://www.CrystalFigurineShoppe.com is offering a discount of 20% below manufacturer's suggested retail price on their newest figurines, which are made from Austrian Swarovski crystal. They also have a sale on dog, cat, and other animal figurines, putting a vast majority of the catalog at a discount. With that kind of sale, all Marla Chorney asks is "Try us!"
