New online farmer's market for wine, Naked Wines ( http://www.nakedwines.com ), which launched only 4 months ago, has recently welcomed its 10,000th customer on board. The heavily interactive retailer, set-up by Virgin Money and Virgin Wines' Founder Rowan Gormley, hit the milestone figure during the launch of their 'wines for a £1' auction service. The company, which is based in Norwich, delivers wine throughout the UK.
Online PR News – 02-April-2009 – – Online Farmer's Market for wine, Naked Wines, which launched in December 2008, has recently welcomed its 10,000th customer on board.
The Norwich-based company, which was set-up by former Virgin Wines founder and CEO Rowan Gormley, hit the milestone figure last week during the launch of their 'wines for a £1' auction service.
London-based Amelie Menier, who visited the Naked Wines' site to order a case for a Ghanean Charity event, was flagged as the lucky customer.
“We were chuffed to welcome Amelie as our 10,000th customer - an exciting day for us!” explained a Naked Wines employee. “A few sceptics thought we were mad to start a business during such tough times, but the response we've had from customers (as well as our winemakers) has been overwhelming. Staying in with a bottle of wine appears to be the new going out – roll on the next 10,000!”
Naked Wines have since refunded Amelie for the cost of the wines and will be auctioning off a second case to raise money for Raise the Roof, Amelie's chosen charity.
“I was really pleased to be named as Naked Wines' 10,000th customer! It's a fantastic, interactive site - and being able to talk to the winemakers themselves, it's quite unlike any other wine retailer I've come across. I'll definitely be spreading the Naked word and ordering from them again!”
