A Labor of Love…
Tacoma Wine Merchants Blog, Website, Online Store Launch!
Taking on the task of building a new website and a first ever Tacoma Wine Merchants online store led to many late nights. I will not complain about spending the extra time with my partner (and husband), however, neither Rob nor I knew what we were getting ourselves into….we soon found out!
Since taking over the shop in 2017 from long time owner Bill Bonnie, we have more than quadrupled Tacoma Wine Merchants inventory. Cataloguing, photographing and migrating over 1,500 items into a format that syncs between our brick-and-mortar location and new online shop has been no small feat.
But we are so thrilled that our customers will be able to access our full inventory any time and any place! They’ll also be able to see their complete order history to solve those frustrating moments of trying to remember past purchases—for instance, what Champagne was purchased to celebrate Mother’s Day or which wines were in last October’s wine club.
Speaking of wine clubs, we heard loud and clear that our customers wanted more options. We’ve expanded our wine club offerings and look forward to continuing to sharing the wines we’ve sipped and selected.
Another great joy in having the shop is connecting aficionados and amateurs who enjoy each others company and talking wine. We love building community one glass at a time. We hope the new website will help us connect with even more wine-lovers and bring them into the TWM fold.
It has been a labor of much love, and we are so excited to launch this new platform for our gritty city that we love so much. Cheers!
