In the beginning of October, the Simmons family started our next venture into fun furniture. This time we took a much lower overhead approach when opening the B2 Bean Bags store online . It took me a while and although it is very simple at this time, it has gotten a lot of traffic! We have sold a total of 7 bean bags and have requests for more than 20 in just under a week.
With the holidays approaching we are anticipating more traffic so get your orders in early. Currently we have a coupon for $10.00 off (coupon code 10off) your purchase with free shipping on the website through the holidays. We are utilizing social medias Twitter/Facebook to really reach out and gain a presence leading up to the Holidays.
Sure we are out to make money, but we are using the business to teach our kids the importance of giving back as well. They have chosen the local Give a Kid a Chance through the Tampa YMCA for their charity. This allows underpriveleged children the opportunity to attend summer camps at the YMCA. A very noble idea, this has the kids excited to give the Y a check at the end of the year.
WHAT'S IN THE NAME B2 Bean Bags?
The name came from the kids request to include them in the name of the business. Since the name of my last furniture store was named Davani's after my wife and I, B2 is short for Boomer and Biggie, my online name for the kids and has shown to be pretty catchy so far.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT OUR BEAN BAGS?
Our bean bags are made with Big Time Quality in mind. A Marine grade vinyl which is thick and durable. Fade and stain resistant makes it stand out from the thin vinyl used by Target and Walmart. We use some heavy duty sewing machines to give it double stitched seams that last for years! Added some handles for hanging up or tying it down on your boat. Yes, these are great for boating. The filler is a premium styro bead that is made to last. These will not flatten out into a pancake like the others out there. Cleans up easy with windex or WD40 for stubborn ink stains. A heavy duty #5 Nylon zipper that will not rust and stand up to some serious use. Our primary market was the serious video gamer but has been picked up by avid boaters here in Florida.
