OMG following on from my coat thread I just need to say a MAHOOSIVE thankyou to Shop on the Beach!
Shop on the Beach, who have been reporting that their Merrell coats have been flying out the door [hmm, wonder why...? ] following my coat thread, have bloody well sent me a free pair of Merrell boots! And they fit beautifully! And I love them!
They are OFFICIALLY my lovely, wonderful people of choice. Moveover Mr Boden, Mumsnet has a new god...
[And by the way, I do NOT work for them, do not work in marketing/PR, and I asked MNHQ's permission before posting this thread...]
I'm having slight guilt heebie-jeebies now because it was a collective endeavour in the end. On the other hand, you can't SHARE the boots so you cannot, in fact, have them <barricades door>
And it isn't moral for me to do wilful marketing for them [I wasn't, I was just searching for coats, and I still haven't bought my own!]. So I hope they will embrace MN with an advertising deal if they do truly think we're a good place to sell.
Gosh don't feel bad! They were lucky that you collectively stumbled on them, you were lucky that they had the smarts (as my American cousin would say) to capitalise on the marketing opportunity that came their way. Enjoy the boots
"We're a very small company (only 4 members of staff) and we struggle to compete with the big retailers, so we try very hard to offer great service, with a more human element than the big shops can offer. The recession knocked the stuffing out of us a bit, so it's been a huge morale boost for us to hear people saying lovely things about us on Mumsnet. You've made our month, so we wanted to make your day in return.
Thanks from all of us here - Tina, Rob, Hannah and Nadine."
