We manufacture handmade products using locally grown cedar. Our local workforce is skilled in the manufacture of wood products. They need these jobs and we need your business.
By utilizing these local resources we protect our environment while keeping our manufacturing cost down. Isn't this what buying Oregon is about?
How did you earn your first sales? Which channels are now generating the most traffic and sales for you?
Though in business for 15+ years, we have recently developed our website to increase our sales directly to the consumer. Shopify allows us to promote our products in a cost effective manner. Gazebos are a game changer for us. They are a cost effective way to add beautiful living space at a very good value. We invest the increased revenue from the sale to serve the consumer. This includes manufacturing their custom gazebo to setting it up at their home. We offer arranging to have a licensed contractor set up your custom gazebo or do it yourself with our guidance.
Tell us about the back-end of your business. What tools and apps do you use to run your store? How do you handle shipping and fulfillment?
Our gazebo kits are handmade to order. We do use power tools and machinery to create the component parts. All assembly is by hand so every product has our finger prints on it. This is where our quality is checked several time over.
We use Shopify to market our products to the consumer and the wholesale customer. These customers are very different so we market through two sites. Shopify gives us the ability to serve these customers in a unique way. We have many plans to enhance our web presence including designing your custom gazebo on line.
