Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) November 22, 2011
Local Hem, the online boutique shopping platform, is giving online shoppers yet another reason to support small businesses this holiday season: free shipping. Local Hem’s online boutiques offer something for every taste and budget from designers like Elizabeth and James, EMU Australia, Freebird by Steven, 80%20, Prairie Underground, Plenty By Tracy Reese, Three Dots and more.
Launched in September 2011, Local Hem aggregates the online storefronts of a carefully selected collection of brick-and-mortar women’s boutiques. Each boutique chosen to join Local Hem offers exceptional customer service, and a high quality, hard-to-find selection of merchandise. Founder and CEO, Colleen King, noted, “By carefully selecting which boutiques we present on Local Hem, we are able to demonstrate to shoppers worldwide that it can be just as convenient and pleasurable to support small boutiques as it to shop chain retailers. Our boutique owners put tremendous care into offering above-and-beyond service and Local Hem shoppers pick up on that in each step of the buying process.”
In the spirit of the holiday season, every Local Hem online boutique is offering a free shipping deal, with many of the boutiques offering complimentary gift-wrap as well. Local Hem’s newest arrivals include faux fur vests and coats by Rachel Zoe, lace shrugs and cashmere sweaters by Velvet by Graham and Spencer, Splendid knit dresses and tops, Three Dots party dresses and Lisa B. wool tights. Local Hem is celebrating their first holiday season with a sweepstakes for a $100 Local Hem gift card, which can be used at any of their online boutiques. The contest will run through November 30, 2011; details can be found on the Local Hem Facebook Fan Page.
