Toronto, Canada (July 11, 2011) â€“ Lorpen (www.lorpen.com), a leading designer and manufacturer of high performance socks for outdoor and sport enthusiasts, is partnering with Shopatron (www.shopatron.com) to offer customers an enhanced shopping experience with the ability to directly buy online. Lorpen customers are now able to browse, select and purchase their favorite socks directly and easily through the new e-commerce site, www.Lorpen.com.
â€œFor years, our customers have been asking how they can get Lorpen socks if they don’t have a local retailer who carries the brand and we can finally appease those customers with the help of Shopatron,â€ says, Bruce Burrows, North American Sales Manager at Lorpen North America. â€œWe chose Shopatron to continue our strong relationship with our retailers, as they will be the ones fulfilling the online orders through our site. It really is a win, win for our customers, our retailers and Lorpen.â€
Shopatron allows customers to order directly on Lorpen.com and when the orders are processed they are fulfilled by the closest retailer that carries Lorpen socks. Conveniently, Lorpen customers are able to either pick up their order at the closest brick and mortar store or have their socks shipped to them directly.
â€œWe will continue to put a great deal of energy into providing enhanced technology and online tools to meet the needs of our customers and retailers,â€ says Colin Sanders, VP of sales and marketing at Lorpen North America. â€œWe want our online experience to be at the same level of quality that we strive for in our products.â€
