...on average, one in every 200 adult men in the US has one of my ties in his wardrobe. No matter where I go in the US, the chance of seeing a well dressed man wearing our ties is quite high.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 21, 2013
San Francisco based online tie shop, Bows-N-Ties.com, just welcomed their 100,000th customer. The niche retailer opened their doors just four years ago, and has since grown into one of the world's largest neckwear retailers.
"Hitting this milestone is huge for us," says the site's founder Hendrik Pohl. "It made me think about what this means for the business and myself. I calculated that, on average, one in every 200 adult men in the US has one of our ties in his wardrobe. No matter where I go in the US, the chance of seeing a well dressed man wearing our ties is quite high. For me, this is like a dream come true. Now the next target is to double this figure. We have been growing steadily each year and I think we will celebrate our millions tie sold by the end of 2014."
To thank the 100,000th customer, a young women from Texas who ordered a tie for her fiancee to wear to their upcoming wedding, Bows-N-Ties decided to ship her tie for free. In addition, the retailer added a surprise present for her. "While we want to thank each and every one of our 100,000 customers, just one of them hit the jackpot." says Pohl, who didn't give away the contents of the surprise present.
The 100,000th customer celebration is just one of two big milestones Bows-N-Ties recently reached. Just last week, the retailer was honored with a feature on INC Magazine's INC500 - a list of the 500 fastest growing businesses in America. While the company's continuous effort to add new collections, tie designs, and brands is certainly somewhat responsible for this rapid growth, Pohl also thinks that the demand for ties has been increasing. According to Pohl, "Ties are 'in' again", and he continues saying that "TV shows like Mad Men certainly helped in making the tie 'cool' again."
