New York, NY (PRWEB) February 08, 2013
Alongside the official opening of their eagerly anticipated Covent Garden Store on Thursday 14th February, The Cambridge Satchel Company has today announced plans to launch a US website http://www.cambridgesatchel.com. To coincide with New York Fashion week, the website will launch on Thursday 7th February. Offering free shipping for a limited time, the new US website will allow US customers to purchase the coveted ‘Brit it Bag’ in USD direct from the US site. It will also provide US customers with exclusive deals and offers.
“Our business has been built on the power of the internet”, said Julie Deane, founder of the Cambridge Satchel Company, “and we are excited to put this dedicated website in place to help meet the online needs of our existing and our new customers. In the last year, we have increased our portfolio of US retailers as well as expanded our range of specials and exclusives with our valued retailers including Bloomingdales, Henri Bendel, J Crew, Shopbop and Urban Outfitters. We are also proud to have announced our first US designer collaboration with the lovely Chris Benz, which received incredible positive response and interest. Our range of fluorescent, or neon, bags were first noticed at New York Fashion week just a few seasons ago – since then the US has really embraced The Cambridge Satchel Company even naming us the ‘Brit It Bag’. As we approach our fifth birthday it seems the perfect time to launch an online shop for our US customers, and what better timing than at the start of another New York Fashion Week?”
Later this month, The Cambridge Satchel Company will be releasing 4 exciting new colors as part of their Spring Summer Collection, as well as 2 new colors for 2013.
