Anticipating change is critical for any small business. For Mountain Threads, right now, that means being prepared to service a more geographically diverse consumer
Golden, CO (PRWEB) February 16, 2012
Since 2009, Mountain Threads has operated a sound business model, serving customers across the ski mecca of Colorado. Its unique ski and snowboard clothing rental service with the option of delivery to all Colorado resorts is still a young concept, but the company’s growth is undeniable. A dynamic company, Mountain Threads is prepared to adapt to the needs of a growing market.
The original ‘servicing all of Colorado’ model was a logical starting point, given the high concentration of ski travelers to the state. Now in its third year of operation, Mountain Threads is experiencing greater order volume, as well as an expansion in consumer demographics. In the first week of February alone, Mountain Threads shipped orders to Wyoming and as far as Michigan and Vermont. “It’s something we are very excited about. Most of our marketing has been concentrated on the Colorado snow sports industry, so having a customer request our service in Killington was a pleasant surprise,” says founder Julie Petty.
Knowing that orders outside of Colorado will only escalate with time, Petty adds, “Anticipating change is critical for any small business. For Mountain Threads, right now, that means being prepared to service a more geographically diverse consumer.” Mountain Threads recently signed on with a major courier, allowing it to manage all shipping logistics from its offices in Golden, CO.
Extending its “hassle free” concept to a broader geography makes sense for Mountain Threads and the customer. By shipping directly to accommodations with a pre-printed return label inside the box, all the customer has to do is stick the return label on the outside, tape it up (tape is even provided in the box), and leave the package at the hotel or lodge for pick-up.
