Rapidly Growing E-commerce Online Furniture Retailing Business Site Posts An Unprecedented Increase In The Last Twelve Months.
Online PR News – 25-February-2010 – – Minneapolis, MN – When it all started, Brent Gensler was trying to find a bargain-priced sofa set. But what he ended up with was, a rapidly growing e-commerce online furniture retailing business site, DefySupply.com.
The journey from sofa shopper to furniture entrepreneur has all the elements of a saga, including months in the library researching the complexity of the shipping channels and a few months more spent in Asia seeking manufacturers that offered both good quality and a willingness to build products one order at a time.
"It sounds crazy now, but it made perfect sense at the time," said Gensler. "I just didn't understand how much I didn't know."
Brent calculated what various carriers charged for overseas and on-land trucking. He discovered that packaging was critical, and that breaking a larger piece into two smaller packages could save a bundle. He figured out how to combine shipments for a minimum number of trucks from factory to seaport and from the West Coast to the customer.
He spent three months in Asia contacting 250 furniture manufacturers before selecting 50 companies in China.
As he navigated through this process, Brent learned the hard way that there can be frustrating and sometimes expensive glitches.
Because clients have complained to online consumer websites about lengthy delivery delays, damaged goods and furniture that did not match the color which customers thought they'd ordered, Brent replaced several transportation vendors and added color swatches to his website to pinpoint customer preferences and avoid disagreements. These efforts have paid off with a collection of favorable online reviews regarding the style and quality of DefySupply.com’s furniture.
And while the difficulties in today's economy have been a barrier for many retailers, the continued demand for discounted modern furniture has led customers to DefySupply, where prices are considered to be unbeatable in both the wholesale and individual sectors.
