Site Progress etc.

New store categories, free shipping, news feed.....and more
Posted by: Dave Cool

Hi Kids,

I have finished loading the "Track" category, based on past sales and taking account of your recent requests. (I've had problems with Peco due to a supplier closing up, but I think we're okay going forward.) If a range of items is not there you probably didn't ask for it. However, if I have missed a product range that you'd be interested in purchasing let me know in your comments.

I'm now working on "Vehicles", with Athearn, Atlas, Life-Like and Model Power covered so far. If you have requests in this category for particular lines please make a comment.

The next category will probably be either "Tools" or "Paints etc". What do you think? Which would you prefer first and what would you be looking to buy? Comments please.

Note that I've changed the structure of the above two categories to put the scale split at the top. This should help with browsing and will be done retroactively with the other categories in due course. Thanks to several clients for putting me right on that one.

I've spoilt you enough with the free shipping for a while - besides, I can't afford it. What did you think of the deal? Any suggestions for similar promotions in the future?

I've tried to keep a number of "Specials" active at any one time. There are currently 69 items on sale with some of them being very popular over the last couple of weeks.

"New Products" are primarily comprised of the above new categories and so are not really new products. However, many really new items have been added over the last couple of months. The most significant of these were covered by "Product News" items. Speaking of which, how is the RSS news feed working out for you? Are you getting notification in a timely manner?

How's the RSS blog feed working out, too? Well, if you're reading this on Friday the 19th it must be fine.

Have a great week-end,
