I was asked recently to do some back to school shopping online at Cookie’s Kids and I jumped at the chance! I adore shopping for my kidlets and finding great deals on clothes for them; Cookie’s Kids combines both of those into one awesome shopping experience!
Here’s some background on #CookiesKids:
In 1972, a young man named Cookie and his brother Marvin went into business together. They rented a 1600 square foot store in Jamaica, Queens, fixed it up, bought inventory and Summer and Fall, and opened a day after Thanksgiving with a full stock of holiday toys. The toys were a success and they put the extra money toward buying children’s clothing for the next season. When that did well, they bought more clothing. The business was on it’s way.
As the brothers Cookie, Marvin and Sonny, who had come in as a third partner in the business, began to open new stores in new locations, inventory expanded. Besides the latest fashions, our customers wanted shoes, toys, backpacks and accessories and we were prepared to deliver.
By the late 1990′s there were six superstores throughout the NYC area, and though they previously had different names, by that time they were all named Cookie’s Kids. Also in the late ’90s came an important addition to Cookie’s Kids’ inventory: school uniforms. It was the steady success in uniform sales that paved the way for founding CookiesKids.com in 2007, which originally sold uniforms and soon after the entire Cookie’s Kids Inventory.
I love a great business story!
If you’ve never heard of Cookie’s Kids, you’re missing out. Cookie’s Kids is dedicated to offering affordable quality kids’ clothing and it doesn’t disappoint. If you’d like to read all about my shopping experience, you can find it HERE. I loved the simple, clean lay out of the site and all of the extra navigational tools that it offers and let me tell you, you can’t beat the prices!
This is my cart right before I checked out. I ended up getting 4 shirts for Luke for just over $30 and that included shipping! Sweet deal, right?
Here are the shirts when they arrived. SO handsome! You’ll probably notice that there are only three shirts here and there are four on the screen shot of my order. As it turns out, one of the shirts that I had ordered wasn’t available after I had submitted my order. A customer service representative sent me a personal email letting me know of the situation. I also had my shipping refunded, plus I was given a $10 credit for the site (and that can go a long way!). Great customer service, in my opinion!
Can you see the price tag on the white shirt? This shirt originally retailed for $26.99 and I was able to get it for $5.99!
Luke is so thrilled with his new shirts and he can’t wait to show them off at school. Isn’t he just the handsomest guy you ever saw?
