Small Leather Goods Company, LeatherTree.com, Expects Good Christmas Sales Despite Poor Economic Conditions | Reuters
ISLAND LAKE, IL, Dec 02 (MARKET WIRE) --
While the outlook for Christmas sales is still dubious, LeatherTree.com, a
leading online supplier of leather briefcases and leather desk sets is
expecting to have a very good Christmas this year, despite the economy.
Six months ago, LeatherTree.com decided to take a new, proactive approach
to their leather sales. Rather than waiting around to bottom out, a fate
many similar small businesses find themselves in due to the poor economy,
LeatherTree.com began a sales campaign that incorporated outgoing sales
calls to existing and prospective customers pitching corporate gifts for
the holidays and corporate incentives for employees. The results were
"We were hoping to simply maintain sales, and not lose money, and we ended
up #426 in Internet Retailer Magazine's top 500 retailer list," said
Jacqueline Berger, president of LeatherTree.com. "Many of our corporate
customers have ordered entire leather desk sets and desk accessories for
all of their offices to spruce up their images and show their clients
they are a successful company."
Another top seller during the recent campaign has been leather binders,
with many companies ordering leather binders with their company names
debossed on them for their sales force to use while on sales calls.
"After all, carrying a high class leather briefcase with a personalized
leather binder exhibits professionalism, and shows prospective customers
and clients that they are dealing with a successful company," said Berger.
On the heels of their successful sales campaign, LeatherTree.com is
already geared up for the Christmas season with plenty of stock available
on all items. Some of the more popular choices are leather Christmas
gifts for mom such as leather journals and jewelry boxes. The biggest
selling Christmas gifts for him include Italian leather briefcases and
leather padfolios. Other great holiday gifts this year include wine
carriers, leather desk sets for executives and leather binders
personalized with initials.
