As I write this we are nearing the end of day four with our lovely new website!! It is always an “interesting time” getting to know new systems etc. but it is going well so far. The response to the site has been terrific and also there has been great enthusiasm for the I phone version as well.
Jars and Bottles
The jam jars packs now include lids in a choice of pack sizes and customers are enjoying being able to try the different coloured lids on the jars. Just click the coloured swatch and see the jar change lids – its surprising how different the jar looks with each colour. The Bargain Packs are going very well and we intend to introduce Bottle Bargain Packs before long. We have generally introduced pack sizes to most of our jars and bottles now.
We have considerably expanded The Kitchen category and if you can spend some time browsing all the various categories you will find some lovely new kitchen ranges and far more in this area of the site than we have ever had before. As an example we have a wide range of Mason Cash mixing bowls now in all the styles and colours available.
Shipping Your Jars and Bottles
Our shipping charge has gone up by one pound to £5.95 UK mainland but this is still very reasonable and does include “no matter how much your order”. Bearing in mind the cost of packaging these days we believe that our customers will still be pleased with our delivery charges. Orders are sent out quickly (usually within 48 hours of receipt of order) and everything goes on an overnight delivery. Friday dispatch though does not get there until a Monday!! European delivery charges come up automatically on the site but worldwide we quote for separately upon receipt of order.
We would like to invite our customers to send in their favourite recipes for either preserving or baking which we will put on our recipes section. Any customer having a recipe published will be sent a £10 voucher to spend on the site!!!
Over the coming weeks as always at this time of year we will be sourcing new items for the site and will keep you informed through this blog.
So watch this space for the latest news on jars and bottles and much much more!!!
