Using new social networking tools available on the internet has enabled Pure Board Shop to reach out to its ever expanding customer base. Pure now wants to combine that with a state of the art website and turn this into more on-line sales.
Facebook has provided a fantastic platform to provide information on company events, new products and discussion boards to initiate conversations with customers for input. Pure Board Shop also uses Twitter, to provide immediate information on new product arrivals and announce new promotions, as well as to provide photo’s and ideas.
Together with their social media presence, a strong on-line store will help keep Pure growing year after year.
When Pure Board Shop opened in May of 2005 they knew they had what it took to be a viable retailer in the ever growing board sports market.
The owner, Robby Roberts, also co-owned Evolve Board Shops in Annapolis and Bethesda for 10 years.
After moving to a large location in 1 of their 4 moves in a decade, Evolve tried their shot early in the e-commerce days of 2001.
By 2003, after 10 years of board sports retailing, Evolve sold its 2 store fronts and Robby went on to manage a friends board shop in Virginia.
Pure opened it’s e-store in 2006 and has been steadily updating the website with pictures and inventory but has seen dwindling sales in the past few years.
Having experience with multiple store fronts, the Pure crew feels the best way to grow is with a successful e-commerce site.
With so many options the consumer has to find like products, having a much larger audience coming to our website is a better option than building out a new location.
Finding the right person to go with them and aid them on their journey into the future of retailing will be instrumental not only on their success but a profitable survival.
