Metairie, LA (PRWEB) July 11, 2013
In the June 2013 issue of Casual Living Magazine, The Garden Gates is featured in a full-length article thanks to its unique growth from a niche brick and mortar store in Metairie, a New Orleans suburb, to a rapidly growing and successful online retail store.
Cinde Ingram, author of the article “The Garden Gates: Virtual Garden Grows from Metairie Lifestyle store,” explains how the owner of The Garden Gates Chad Harris utilizes the latest technology and retail practices while maintaining a neighborly, friendly attitude. Ingram writes, “With such a mindset, it's little wonder his staff works to stay fully engaged with its customers both in-store, catalog and online.” This impressive article shows how the company not only uses technology to enhance the customer experience but also uses the physical store as a testing ground for new ideas and customer reactions. Through this combination, The Garden Gates has grown exponentially thanks to its move to the world of online sales.
"With our team of professionals connected to our team of virtual professionals, we have embraced the virtual world head on," Harris said. "We spend our days strategizing to become a truly virtual company."
