Many customers no longer wait for after Thanksgiving to begin holiday shopping. With the popularity of online companies such as GoatMilkStuff.com, consumers tend to begin shopping earlier.
Scottsburg, Indiana (PRWEB) December 01, 2014
Holiday sales are running at a brisk rate at http://www.GoatMilkStuff.com, announced PJ Jonas, founder of the nationally-acclaimed maker and marketer of natural goat milk soaps and lotions who said Christmas-related sales began earlier this year as many shoppers sought bargains before Thanksgiving.
PJ said, “We are happy our goat milk soap and lotion products help so many people by moisturizing their skin and feel that the Gift Packs we have developed are becoming thoughtful Christmas presents for so many people.”
The mom of eight teamed with husband Jim six years ago to market natural soaps made with milk of goats on their Indiana dairy. Since then, sales of the family business grew dramatically each year. Each of the Jonas children, ages 7 to 17, help in age-appropriate ways from milking goats to assisting in the office. The children are also home-schooled by PJ, a former engineer, and Jim who was previously a business executive and a science teacher.
Jim Jonas, said, “Many customers no longer wait for after Thanksgiving to begin holiday shopping. For decades, the Friday after Thanksgiving was when many big retailers went into the black, or became profitable, as the Christmas selling season begain. With the internet and popularity of online companies such as GoatMilkStuff.com, consumers tend to begin shopping earlier.”
PJ and Jim have been widely recognized for their small business success as both received Indiana’s highest entrepreneurship awards. PJ this month received the 2014 Annual Southern Indiana Small Business Entrepreneur Award and last year was voted Leading Mom in Business in the 2013 national competition of StartupNation.com. This year, Mike Huckabee, host of the Huckabee Show, interviewed PJ and Jim about building their small business to prominence.
