Online sales grew by more than 30% in the fourth quarter, but store sales slid by 6.1% year over year.
The nearly 3-year-old company closed more than $1.3 million in sales in 2012.
ST. LOUIS, July 22, 2013 -- Cubicle.com revolutionized the way people purchase cubicles for their offices when it became the first online retailer of the product in 2010. Today, the leading online cubicle store, Cubicle.com, launches its new website to further streamline the buying process and enhance customer experience.
The nearly 3-year-old company closed more than $1.3 million in sales in 2012, and St. Louis Small Business Monthly recently honored Cubicle.com founders, Dan and Liz Lohman, as two of St. Louis's Top Young Entrepreneurs.
"Cubicle.com started with the idea that there had to be a better way to buy and sell cubicles," explains Cubicle.com President Liz Lohman. "We've since developed a proven system that combines the ease of online shopping with the customer service of a brick-and-mortar store. The new site not only provides our customers with additional features, but also greatly improves the backend functionality for managing orders."
One of the largest fundamental changes is moving the site to Wordpress, giving developers better control of the site and providing increased search optimization capabilities. For users, the new shopping cart includes a login feature where customers can find past purchases and receipts, check the status of a current order, and receive email notifications. Additionally, page load times are faster and the new payment gateway offers a secure option for customers to facilitate their office cubicle purchase directly on the site.
Customers accustomed to the four-step buying process can easily walk through the new steps, which resemble those of the older website but with organizational updates to highlight options like the shape, size and color of their cubicles, and product information.
"Our company has come a long way in a short period of time and while we have continually added new features to reflect its growth, this new site is another big step toward providing our customers with the best possible service," said Liz Lohman.
Cubicle.com also provides space planning services and custom orders, along with immediate customer assistance. Standard shipping is still free and, in most cases, the large and small cubicles ship directly to the customer in 10 business days.
