We have all been there, trawling the internet when you are meant to be hard at work, rushing frantically down the high street, calling customer services daily like a stalking nutcase, all to get your hands on an item you saw in a magazine and figured you NEED in your life. Already so much planning has gone into it to where you would wear it, with what shoes, colour lipstick, how you can justify the money spent, that in your mind you already have it hanging safely in the compounds of your wardrobe.
So imagine the disappointment when yet again, devastation occurs. You cannot find the item anywhere, shop assistants have never heard of it, customer services keep repeating they need a product number, the website acts like it never existed… what is going on? Were you in a parallel universe when you saw it in print that day, a wonderfully simple world where you see an item you like and buy it? Surely not too much to ask, surely….
Then we must introduce you to We Like Shopping, the website that has picked up on such desperate needs and acted swiftly upon it. Having launched just in time for the London Olympics, We Like Shopping is a platform that allows customers at any given point to know what sales, deals and new collections are taking place at different fashion stores around London.
By subscribing to a brand, you will be notified straight away when new stock, exciting news and upcoming events are about to launch, meaning never again will you be the last one to know. “Having identified the problem, we believe we have come up with an original and sustainable solution of keeping shoppers informed” states Marketing Director, Mika Vinokurov. Hallelujah!
Brands that have signed up so far include, Beyond Retro, Boudi, The Kooples and Irregular Choice with many more established names in the pipeline. Our favourite part of the website is the ‘Explore’ section where you can discover blogs, trends, collages, hot looks and general up to date news within the shopping world.
Having only just launched, you must check it out now. Never again will the hot flush of misery descend upon you, like it did on that tiring Thursday evening down Oxford Street.
