Guild Membership now includes access to Wool Inn online discounts
Some retailers offer discounts to Knitters' Guild members, however, for many it means travelling some distance to visit the retailer who may not have enough stock at the time of your visit or spending time on the phone trying to locate a retailer with the product/shade in stock.
Anita Borcherdt, the owner of The Wool Inn at Penrith, has just launched an online store to help address the issues.
When we spoke to Anita she said "We have loaded the most popular products into our online store and we show the quantity available. The store is updated from the system in our retail shop nightly.
Traditionally we have used mail order to service members geographically displaced from our shop. The member had to trawl through online websites and then phone or email the shop to confirm we had stock of that product/shade. The new online shop allows the member to shop at any time, knowing what products/shades we have in stock. Members can pay using direct deposit, a credit card using Paypal or by posting a cheque/money order and we ship using Australia Post - same day for orders placed before 3:00pm that using Paypal as the payment method."
The Wool Inn has provided the Knitters' Guild with coupon codes that members can use to redeem their discount as they use the online checkout process. Your regular newsletter will contain the coupon code to use when shopping at http://the-wool-inn.com/shop/
