There are a lot of changes over at Eight Cousins, both in our store and online. If you haven’t visited us recently you might not know that we reshuffled the sections this Fall. Most of the front of store is now dedicated to books for grown-ups. The fiction and non-fiction books refused to be confined so they now each have their own section. We still have a Mystery table and have also added a Science section, which we thought was pretty important for this area.
We always spend the first few days of each new year conducting inventory. We’ve counted every book, toy, puzzle, game, animal, card, and rock in the store. We dusted, shifted, organized, and spruced in the record time of 2 days! Thanks to all our holiday staff members who helped out!
We also have some big changes online. The website [www.eightcousins.com] has been completely restructured, redesigned, and recolored. We plan to add staff recommendation pages in the near future and are bouncing around other ideas. We’d love to know what you think of it so if you have any suggestions, feel free to add comments below!
Of course we’re on Facebook; we have occasional specials on Foursquare, Yelp, and Google Places; and we’re testing the waters over at Pinterest. We’ll be sending out a January newsletter detailing all these changes, which will also contain information about our upcoming events. We always have so many things happening in store that one of our resolutions is to send out a newsletter once a month. If you’d like to start receiving it, click here.
Happy New Year! We think that 2013 will be a great one!
