Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) November 08, 2012
After a strong back to school shopping season, the SupplyGeeks continued to stay hot in October. In fact the quirky office supply e-commerce site posted record sales for the month. While not releasing specific sales numbers, the maverick office supplies e-tailer did disclose that October brought an impressive 48% sales growth over September. Additionally, the SupplyGeeks reported that October was their best sales month since the site launched in May of this year.
The record setting month was driven by several different product categories. These items included clipboards, binders, rubber bands, and calendars for the upcoming 2013 year. The company also reported that a new category, Office Gifts, has seen a promising level of initial traffic, indicating a potential surge for the holiday season.
“SupplyGeeks.com continues to grow and October was by far our best month of all time,” said director of e-commerce Eric Houtkooper. “With over 35,000 products, we have the office products that our customers are searching for. But our customer service is what sets us apart from the big box stores. We've been impressed to see customers come back and order from SupplyGeeks again and again. That means we are building a brand that customers can trust.”
After the impressive gains seen in October, the SupplyGeeks are shifting their efforts to the holiday season shopping push. To correlate with the season, The SupplyGeeks recently unveiled their Top Five Office Gift Ideas to coincide with their recently launched “Surprisingly Appropriate” office gift category. Hoping to feed off the October success and compete with the chain stores, the SupplyGeeks have hand picked cool and quirky gifts for anyone in the office.
“We are hoping to be a hot online destination for office gifts this holiday season. Building off a strong October, we know that our product selection, convenient fast shipping, and great gift ideas give us an advantage heading into the holidays,” said Eric Houtkooper. "We think that customers appreciate our selection, service and speed. This can be a huge boost for us in the holiday season."
