Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) April 21, 2009
BHEESTIE & Co., llc, a Portland, OR based company, which created the trademarked BHEESTIE Bag™ for personal electronics users, announces new sales of their popular product, the BHEESTIE Bag™, to REI.
The BHEESTIE Bag™ is a new innovative product that removes moisture from personal electronics: cell phones, cameras, iPods®, watches, etc. The BHEESTIE bag™ is designed to help electronics function properly and prevent corrosion due to everyday moisture. It has even been known to save electronics after accidental soakings.
Beginning in late April, the BHEESTIE Bag™ will be sold to customers nationwide in REI stores.
"We are very excited to be working with REI and expanding our market," says Lisa Holmes, co-founder of BHEESTIE & Co., llc. "We love the outdoor adventure lifestyle REI promotes and feel the BHEESTIE Bag™ fits well with that. Most people go outside with their cell phone, most people have a wet cell phone story. Now we and REI can help them with that."
BHEESTIE & Co., llc, began when a new Gameboy® was dropped in a pond. Due to her lifelong hearing loss, co-founder Karen Wildman was able to transfer her knowledge of drying out hearing aids to save her son's Gameboy®. She shared her idea with her sister, Lisa Holmes, who, living in Oregon, had her own battles with wet iPods® and cell phones. Together they formed BHEESTIE & Co., llc. and created the BHEESTIE Bag™.
Karen Wildman completed nursing school in Portland, OR and currently lives in Texas with her husband and three children.
Lisa Holmes holds a degree in accounting and lives in Portland, OR with her husband and two children.
