Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 18, 2012
Everyone loves a bargain these days, which is why Lamps Plus, the nation’s largest specialty lighting retailer, recently re-designed its popular online lighting outlet store, Lamps Plus Open Box. New website features include a streamlined home page that showcases select deals, and a “satisfaction guaranteed” policy allowing consumers to make hassle-free returns.
Open Box works as one would expect from a Lamps Plus outlet store, offering deep discounts on limited supply items. However, unlike many outlet lighting and home furnishing sale sites that sell old, overstock product, Open Box offers deals on brand new lighting and home decor products that have been returned to a Lamps Plus shipping warehouse or lighting store. Prior to being made available on Open Box, these returned designs are examined by a quality control team to make sure they are in perfect working order and in a “brand new” condition. The designs are then offered for sale on the site on a first-come, first-served basis. Free shipping is offered on many of the designs, allowing consumers to save even more. Boxes may show extreme wear, or the merchandise may not be shipped in its original packaging, but all Open Box product is “brand new.”
With the website re-design comes an Open Box Satisfaction Guaranteed pledge allowing for customer returns. “We understand that some of our customers might hesitate to buy an open box design, even with our fantastic pricing,” comments Dennis Swanson, Lamps Plus owner and CEO. “So we wanted to remove any hesitation on their part by making it clear that they can return any order for any reason, no questions asked.”
The site’s re-designed home page offers a snapshot view of select deals by category, from deals on outdoor lighting fixtures to discounts on bathroom lighting. An item availability count is listed beside each design along with the sale price, allowing consumers to make quick purchasing decisions based on how many items remain for sale. Also new to the site is a “hot seller” item at the top right of the page, in which the current lighting outlet hot sellers are featured. Because product selection and quantities change by the minute, the site has also been designed to update product availability information dynamically, giving customers the most current information at any given time.
Notes Swanson, “We think these site changes best articulate how Lamps Plus Open Box works and what kind of deals consumers will discover as they browse through the product categories. And adding the item availability ticker and “sold out” notices reinforces the first-come, first-served aspect of the site in a very direct and visual way.”
