Columbus, Georgia (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
The Blue Door Boutique has hit the social media milestone of 1 million likes on Facebook! To celebrate, The Blue Door will be giving out a free t-shirt, made just for the occasion, with each purchase made today online and in the boutique located in Columbus, Georgia. The Blue Door will also host a rare, one day sale of 20% off.
The Blue Door opened its doors in 2005 as a single, brick and mortar store hoping to provide the latest in fashion trends at affordable prices to the local area. In an effort to bring new clientele into the boutique, Owner, Amber Mordic, thought to use the then-new site Facebook as a means of exposure, “I often joke that we were Facebook-ing before Facebook was cool!” By 2011, The Blue Door had 6,000 fans and was making sales via Facebook comments. To accommodate the growing interest in her boutique, Mordic entertained the idea of launching a website. In 2008, with 7,000 Facebook fans, ShopBlueDoor.com was launched. On April 22, 2011, with 7,000 Facebook fans, ShopBlueDoor.com was launched. Today, exactly three years larer, The Blue Door is celebrating 1 million fans, the most “Likes” for a business of its kind, and is shipping orders nationwide daily. “Not too long ago, The Blue Door was just a single store in a small town. I was the only employee with big dreams (and an even bigger loan),” remembers Mordic, “Today we are celebrating 1 million Facebook fans. It's hard to believe. I still pinch myself!”
