For some reason, we have precious few online bridal fashion outlets in Canada. So every new launch is great and welcoming news. More choices, more competition, affordability and no weird taxes, import duties and expensive shipping rates!
We just received a very upbeat and enthousiastic press release about the new TiaStar.com bridal boutique, "opening soon" (December 1st) at a computer near you! Loved the energy of it. Here are the main parts:
On December 1st Tia Star, a 28 year old entrepreneur, will be launching Canada's first online designer dress store, TiaStar.com. TiaStar.com will provide Canadian women with the latest trends, classic fashions, and accessories for all occasions. The site's diverse offerings will range from $50 to $300 per dress and offer brands such as Hype, Aidan Mattox and Maggy London. Women will be able to conveniently shop online without paying import fees, making returns easier and shopping more affordable.
Because I'm so excited, I am offering a free $10 gift certificate to my boutique that is redeemable for the month of December on your first purchase of $100 or more. To get the free gift certificate all you have to do is visit tiastar.com. This offer is for anyone and everyone that visits the site (limit one per customer) so feel free to pass this along to your friends. This offer is available until November 30th, 2009.
I also have a 30-day full refund policy (see details when site is launched), so it's easy to return an item if you decide it's not right for you! I will include a return shipping slip in each order, with a flat rate of $6 for shipping if you choose to use it.
We contacted Tia and she sent us a first list of the designers she will be carrying on her new online boutique:
