Myfridaygoodies.ch – Sell online, store with Zebrabox
In our first customer portrait we are delighted to introduce the online shop myfridaygoodies.ch, owned by Melanie Kohler de Marquez and Fatima Freitag, both from Bern. Since May 2013 the two enterprising businesswomen have been storing their online shop's entire stock with Zebrabox. However, our first contact with them came about through chance. Nonetheless the shop owners value Zebrabox's uncomplicated processes and safe and clean storage. Simple storage – for online traders too!
Myfridaygoodies GmbH is a Swiss company that runs an exclusive online shop selling stylish jewellery and in-demand fashion accessories. From discrete to garishly colourful, from elegant to dress-down; at myfridaygoodies.ch everyone can find their own highly personalised look. Its products are limited in number and are mostly hand-made and unique. Behind myfridaygoodies.ch are Melanie Kohler de Marquez and Fatima Freitag, two women with international roots.
“Because the core of our shop is online, we have no business premises in the classical sense,” say the two managing directors. “Storing our products with Zebrabox is therefore ideal, as existing and future employees have access equally.”
The first contact
They discovered the Zebrabox site in Bern by chance while driving past. Interested in what lay behind the zebra logo, they visited the Zebrabox website and contacted the Bern team via the online contact form. Their first visit was soon arranged.
“We were greeted by a really affable team whose members were always smiling. We were impressed by their good advice and the helpfulness of the Zebrabox team. Also, Zebrabox is very well equipped and offers a storage package that is perfectly matched to your needs. They even give us packing material!”
Deliver goods direct to Zebrabox
Because the accessories for myfridaygoodies.ch are purchased directly from manufacturers all over the world, the owners make use of a goods receipt service which Zebrabox offers to its business customers. The customer orders the goods to be delivered direct to Zebrabox. The goods are received there and placed in the customer's storage room. The customer receives notification of the delivery.
“We find that very valuable. Because we have 24 hour access we can process our orders whenever we have time, instead of being tied to the haulier's schedule.”
High value products must be stored appropriately
At myfridaygoodies.ch the focus is on enjoying a special experience both in the online shop and when unpacking the products, since these are packed with a lot of love and style. Sometimes the shop sells branded products whose authenticity is guaranteed. In addition, all the items on sale are selected with great care by the owners. “So we really need a dry and clean storage area. Zebrabox provides this, unlike most cellars or other storage rooms. And having a secure storage facility for our goods is enormously important. Zebrabox gives us this too. We know we don't need to worry about it.”
Myfridaygoodies.ch grows with Zebrabox
The Zebrabox team in Bern recently discovered the extent to which the two businesswomen's online shop has taken off and become a real success – when myfridaygoodies.ch increased its warehouse stock and changed from a 6 cubic metre to a 12 cubic metre storage room. “We appreciated the straightforward approach of the Zebrabox employees and the minimal paperwork. It lets us concentrate on our core business and growing myfridaygoodies.ch further.”
