You may or may not know that DollarDays has been working on creating a new website since last year. We are getting incredibly close to launching a beautiful new site that is visually appealing, easier to navigate, has a personality and is fun! Resound Agency in Tempe, Ariz has been the harbinger of our success and we could have never done this enormous feat without their amazing creative direction.
Below are a few snippets of the site so you can get an idea of what the new DollarDays site will look like. Our color theme throughout the site is orange, blue and green—with a lot of white space!! The navigation has been improved to help you find what you’re looking for must faster and easier. The products are displayed so that you can see more of them on one page and you can get a quick view of any product. Once you are logged in, depending on whether you are a consumer, business or non-profit, you can click on the correlating box and see the hottest products related to your customer type.
Pretty cool, right? We’re so excited about it. We expect to launch it to the public in early July. Meanwhile, our coders are working night and day to make it as user friendly and full of personality as they possibly can!
Feel free to leave a comment or suggestion! Pass it on!

Trying to save money shopping online can be exhausting. Entire industries have grown up online to help you save money, but you can spend so much time trying to figure out what to do that in the long run, it’s not even worth it to save a couple of dollars.

So Many Options!
For instance, there are several coupon sites you can go to that aggregate coupon codes from online merchants so you have one place to look. Sites like RetailMeNot.com, CouponCabin.com and BradsDeals.com pull together this information so you can take the codes to sites to help save money.
There are rebate sites like Ebates.com and FatWallet.com that give you cash back on all the purchases you make on their deal sites. There are daily deal sites like Groupon.com, LivingSocial.com, NoMoreRack.com and 1SaleDay.com that will inundate your email box with great deals every single day.
You start to add all this up with coupons, rebates, deal of the day sites, etc., and a serious shopper could be spending their entire morning bouncing back and forth trying to figure out where to save that extra dollar.
Now comparison shopping sites like PriceGrabber.com, Google Shopping, Shopping.com and Shopzilla.com have begun to streamline the exercise of shopping by letting you compare the same item on one page with prices from several different selling sites. This is progress for the hurried shopper.
But the hidden secret of the Internet is the emergence of warehouse club sites that take away all the fluff, and if you are willing to buy in a little bit larger quantities, they truly save you money.
Sure, it may look intimidating, but warehouse clubs can save you some serious money. (Photo credit: kenteegardin via photopin cc)
Go to Costco.com; they have thousands of items on their site that can not only be found in the warehouse club stores and bought online, but many new additional items can be bought just online from them. Look at their brand Kirkland baby wipes and baby diapers. What new family does not need a case of those to survive the week? Their pricing on this high-demand commodity item beats all the coupon sites, rebate sites and even the deal sites.
Go to BJ’s Wholesale Club Site and find supplies for your home office from recognized brand names like Hammermill Paper, which verifies the better pricing of this newer group of sites that actually do save you money.
DollarDays.com supplies over 300,000 general merchandise products at wholesale and closeout pricing that falls right in line with these wholesale club sites. Here, the consumer can find all the back-to-school products, health and beauty products and all the snacks they need to fill their pantries or the clothing needed to fill their closets.
Internet entrepreneurs try to figure out the most efficient way to get you the best deal. That is why lots of ideas are thrown against the wall and over time, with a few developing into winners. And this will be how Internet shopping sorts itself out to become the most efficient way save money on the products that you really need and want. Will the coupon sites be the winners, will the rebate sites prevail, or is it the deal sites that rise above the rest? Maybe all three will win; it just depends on what you are looking to buy.

Below is an email we received from a very special friend of DollarDays, second grade teacher Julie Ahern from Waukegan, IL, who we met through one of our Facebook merchandise giveaways where she was a winner, and we’ve stayed in touched ever since. We asked our fans to vote for her to win this award. We posted it on Facebook, Twitter and even our blog. We’re not sure how much of an impact we had, but were are so happy that she won this award AND her first trip to California!
It’s very rewarding to us that our fans took the time to help Julie win this award. A little kindness goes a long, long way!

We have a new VP of Merchandising, Steve Walker, who comes from a successful background in merchandising, with the majority of his tenure at Safeway and SuperValu stores.
Steve has just completed his first week at DollarDays with flying colors! He is excited about his new position and is already making plans to “move the needle” in our merchandising department. Steve’s commitment is the value he places on relationships. He believes that “moving the needle” includes the entire team, which is why he values all relationships.
Steve’s plans for the next few weeks include calling all of our vendors to introduce himself and learn how he can best serve them as a DollarDays vendor. For those of you who would like to call Steve, feel free to phone him at 480.922.8155 ext 109 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a big change for all of us—you, DollarDays and Steve. It’s an opportunity for you to voice ideas you believe will enhance the relationship, and ultimately help you sell more products. And it’s an opportunity for DollarDays to create the environment that is a catalyst for sales growth, which is great news for all of us.
A little about Steve (in case you were wondering)—he is a progressive and broadly experienced leader with a solid track record of success in merchandising. His experience in dealing with suppliers and in every facet of the retail and wholesale industry helps ensure that the DollarDays site continues to have a robust assortment of products to offer its customers. Steve is collaborative, resourceful, and innovative in driving positive impact with our vendors. Walker graduated summa cum laude with a BS in Accounting from the University of Tulsa and an MS in Management from University of St. Thomas, summa cum laude as well.
