We began shipping our hand dipped strawberries on a nationwide basis in 1998
Rocklin, CA (PRWEB) July 24, 2007
Shari's Berries, the company known for The Unforgettable Gift™ and the leading retailer of hand dipped strawberries, has reduced everyday gift prices to the lowest level since they began shipping nationwide in 1998. This price reduction comes after the company lowered their shipping charges in March 2007.
Hand dipped strawberries from Shari's Berries now start at $29.99 for 6, $39.99 for one dozen and $59.99 for two dozen. The company sells over 200 signature gifts including cheesecakes, truffles, dipped cookies, and chocolate caramel apples. Over 85% of products including all top sellers have had their price reduced, some as high as 30%.
The lowest everyday product prices in the company's history now combined with previously reduced shipping charges and the company's unwavering commitment to quality and service are all expected to enable customers to send The Unforgettable Gift of Shari's Berries more often.
Chocolate covered strawberries have become one of the nation's favorite gifts. In 2007 Google modified their Web site logo with a chocolate covered strawberry on Valentine's Day, a symbol of the gift's emerging popularity. Shari's Berries has risen to the top of this gift industry niche with the reputation as The Unforgettable Gift, an extremely satisfying gift made from only the finest ingredients available. Gifts from Shari's Berries express incredible thoughtfulness as well as exceptional taste.
"Because hand dipped strawberries are now more affordable, we expect their popularity to grow far beyond what we have seen during Christmas, Valentine's Day or Mother's Day and given more for birthdays, anniversaries, business gifts, and other more frequent gifting events" says Marketing Manager Dustin Baly.
The company is ready for increased demand. This year the company opened a new production plant in Pennsylvania, right in the heart of the chocolate state that supplements their Rocklin, California facility. The resulting savings from bicoastal distribution has allowed the company to reduce shipping fees an average of 25%.
"We began shipping our hand dipped strawberries on a nationwide basis in 1998" says President Kevin Beresford. "Shari's Berries has seen many wonderful developments, both in growth and in business processes. Instead of melting our secret confection in microwaves we now use over ten industry-sized melters. We once taped all our shipping boxes by hand, but now we rely on seven automatic taping machines."
Shari's Berries has been rated by Internet Retailer as one of the top 300 Retail Web Sites in 2007, has been featured as a romantic makeover on the Doctor Phil daytime talk show, and has appeared on the O List in Oprah magazine.
