Attention Canadian Moms! We're now shipping to Canada ~ Beta Testing

Attention Canadian Moms! We are testing-the-waters, so to speak, with regard to Canadian orders.  We have many Canadian Moms who follow our blog and window-shop in our online store, but cannot order from us.  I get at least a few emails each week asking if we can make an acception to our 'Only Ship in the US policy.'  So for the benefit of our wonderful Canadian Mom followers, I have decided to give it a try.

So here is how the Beta Testing it is going to work...  If you are a Canadian Mom who would like to purchase any of the non-baby products in our store, please contact me via email or use the Live Chat link found at the bottom of every page in our online store.  The ordering process will be handled in a manual method while we are in the testing stage, so go ahead and browse around in the store, making a note of which product , sizes, colors, quantities, etc that you would like to order.  We will then gather those items and calculate the exact shipping rate for that order.  Once you approve the order & price details, we can arrange payment via credit card over the telephone or via online payment through Paypal.

There are some restrictions to orders being shipped to Canada, such as:

    ~ No baby or children's products will be allowed because there are just too many particular laws related to international shipments of childrens products for us to keep up with since we carry so many different childrens product brands.  

    ~ Most of our mother related products can be shipped to Canada (see the list below) so you will be able to order any of the items on our 'approved list' (below).   

    ~ There is a $5.00 (USD) processing fee added to all orders being shipped to Canada.  This fee covers shipping insurance, delivery confirmation, and the extra time it takes us to process the order because of the additional paperwork that is required here in the US when shipping to Canada.

    ~ All orders must ship via Priority Mail International.  Although orders may qualify for 1st Class shipping based on the weight, Priority Mail International is the lowest rate that offers track-ability, which is needed for packages to be insured.

    ~ The full purchase price of the order (less shipping & handling fee's) will be declared in the shipping documents and the customer is responsible for all duties fee's.

Our 'Approved List of Items' that we may ship to Canada are: (subject to change at any time)

Baby Be Mine
Prenatal Cradle
Earth Mama Angel Baby (limited items)
Coobie Bra's
DynaBelly / Zero2Nine Maternity & Nursing Items
SproutShell Infant Carrier Covers/Nursing Covers/Shopping Cart Covers
UnderCover Mama nursing tops
and other pregnancy, maternity, breastfeeding items on an item-by-item basis

If this works out well, we will eventually reconfigure our system to allow Canadian orders directly in our Online Store.  To place an order just gather a list of what you would like to order and either send me an email or try our Live Chat link at the bottom of every page.

Newest Arrival & Giveaway: New Zoobies Slumber Pets

The New Zoobies Slumber Pets arrived during our recent move and I was so surprised at how BIG they are!  I know that Zoobies said they were 'over-sized' but these are really huge!  Both of my grandkids could use one Slumber Pet as a pillow.  Another pleasant surprise that I discovered is that when the sleeping bag is removed from the doll, they are not flat!  They have lots of stuffing still inside so the pillow/doll is still fluffy and comfy.  If you have seen the regular size Zoobies dolls then you know they have really large blankets, and these slumber pets also have an impressively large zippered sleeping bag inside as well.

Watch this quick video to see just how great, and by that I also mean 'great sized' the New Zoobies Slumber Pets really are.

Let me introduce you to each of the New Zoobies Slumber Pets!

This is Gumdrop, he is a lovable Golden Retriever who is the perfect childhood companion.

This is Furbie the Feline, a calico cat that is sure to snuggle its way into your child's heart.

And here is Patch the Pinto, the softest, cuddliest pony this side of Texarkana, sure to trot its way into your child's arms for a long time to come.

WOW! 43" Long!  If your child is 43" or less from the neck down to their toes then they will fit just fine in these large, super-soft sleeping bags. Suggested for kids age 3+, but these Slumber Pets have been safely tested for use by children of all ages!

I am so Pooped! ~ We're Moving to our New Location...

I am so Pooped! For the last several days we have been moving to our new warehouse/shipping center.  That means that we are moving the contents of our 3200 square foot brick & mortar store to our 2400 square foot warehouse/shipping center!  It is not as cramped as it sounds, in the warehouse we can put things on our metal shelves that are over 6 feet high.  Plus we don't need all of the display area that we had to have in our brick & mortar store.

If you are new here, let me bring you up to speed...we opened our brick & mortar store in a small 1400 sq ft shop in February 2008.  After just one year we outgrew that space and moved to a larger 3200 sq ft store one block away.  In April of 2010 we added an online store to our business.  By August our online store had grown so rapidly that I was working my fanny off trying to keep up with two separate businesses.  We thought they would function as one business but it soon became obvious that each operation has it's own unique needs and the only thing they really shared was the inventory.  My small office had been taken over by my shipping supplies and I was going nuts. 

With the economy in our small town really taking a hit, the brick & mortar store appeared to have reached it's maximum potential, while the online store, which was open to customers across this great country was still growing and thriving beyond our expectations.  The day finally came in November 2010, after almost 3 years of being in business, to make a decision about what direction we wanted to take The Baby Store Plus. We decided to close the brick & mortar store and focus our attention on the online store.  Since we did not need the main street location for an online business, we started planning where we would set up our warehouse and shipping center.

That is how we got to this day, and the big move.  Through some strategic brainstorming we came up with a plan to make the primary move over a weekend, while keeping operations running smoothly without interruption.  I had my doubts that we could really pull that off, but so far we have.  I doubt that any of our customers were even aware of what was going on behind the scenes.  My office -slash- shipping hub, was disassembled on Friday afternoon and re-assembled in my new larger space by Friday evening.  We were even able to ship orders on Saturday (we don't normally ship on weekends) that came in on Friday evening.  I was anxious to give the new assembly-line style shipping center a test-drive.  It worked wonderfully...Whew!

The rest of Saturday and Sunday was spent moving inventory to the new warehouse.  I am so dog-tired now.  Tonight (Sunday) after we called it a day, I came home and soaked in a steaming hot tub.  I feel so happy about the move.  The new open space that is set up specifically for an online operation is going to make my work-life so much nicer.  We still have lots more to move, but most of this was already in our storeroom so it doesn't need to be packed, just moved to the new warehouse.

One neat thing about moving is that you find all kinds of hidden treasures.  In clearing out our storeroom I have already found several boxes of products that I didn't know we even had.  Somehow these things got tucked away in a dark corner and forgotten.  I will be digging them out and offering them as either fun giveaways or super discounted items...perhaps for our Thrifty Thursday deals. 

Another really cool thing about the move is that this was the perfect time to re-evaluate some things, such as our credit card processing system, our internet services, and our telephone system.  At our new location we were able to get a much faster internet connection, which means that I can get my online work done faster and we could also upgrade to a new online credit card processing service that offers seamlessly smooth credit card processing on a super secure server.  The change of these two things meant that we were not dependent on a traditional landline for our telephone service.  That meant that we were able to change to a cell phone for our business line.  That may not seem important on the surface, but with a cell phone I am able to take our business phone with me, and therefore provide personal customer service anytime, anywhere!  Now our customers who need assistance do not have to call during normal 'working' hours and take a chance on missing me when I've gone to lunch or to drop-off packages.  I can answer their call anytime and I can assist them right then.  I think that is pretty great! 

Well, that is all the energy I have for tonight.  Like I said in the opening of this post, "I am so Pooped!"  Thanks for taking the time to read our blog posts and for shopping in our store, we truly appreciate you.  You are the reason we are always working on our business, striving to offer you the best products and customer service that we can possibly give.  Thank you!
