Wesley Nicks of Placer County Environmental Health Department also made a statement revealing the work already completed in removing the harmful bacteria from the four affected wells has already proven successful. Three of the four affected wells have already been reported to show no signs of E. Coli and lowered levels of Coliform. Despite this success Squaw Valley reassures its visitors that no contaminated water was ever offered to visitors and has employed independent water experts to aid in the return of the water quality to safe levels that will ensure the safety of all visitors. As work continues to restore safe water supplies to areas including Gold Coast and High Camp the ski slopes have remained open with complimentary bottled water available for visitors skiing the slopes of Upper Mountain.

Fabletics Adopts Innovative Selling Techniques To Appeal To Customers

With the evolution of fashion, brands are always trying to find new techniques to sell their products and appeal to their customers. When Kate Hudson decided to give Fabletics to the world, the company too was stumped trying to figure out a way to appeal to clients and make a name for themselves. Currently, for an individual company to succeed in the fashion industry is a hard feat in itself, not to mention the fact that Amazon now controls most of the customer base. Fabletics had to be creative with their approach if they wanted to make a place for themselves in people’s hearts, and shopping bags!

 

Fabletics decided to initially launch themselves as an online store, to test the waters and see how to would respond to their products. Based on customer reviews, people have been extremely pleased with the brand and what it has to offer them. Fabletics realized that the customers they were appealing to lead a fast and active lifestyle and might very rarely have time to fit shopping for workout clothes into their schedule. Keeping this in mind, the brand decided to offer their customers a monthly subscription through which the latest activewear trends would be delivered to their doorstep. Going out as often as once a month to buy an outfit might be too time-consuming for some, but with Fabletics, customers get access to new clothes every month without much effort.

 

Since establishing their business a few years ago, the brand has leaped to an extremely prominent position in the activewear department, standing among the top sportswear competitors. Last year, Fabletics decided to expand themselves even further and decided to open physical stores in locations across America. This allowed branding to become available to people who would choose to go on about making their shopping purchases physically rather than online. This helped the company expand further, appealing to a larger audience.

 

But shops are plentiful, and businesses need to find a way to make customers come over to their shops as opposed to the one across the street. This means that Fabletics had to find yet another innovative technique to market themselves and set themselves apart. Keeping this in mind, Fabletics adopted the reverse showrooming technique to appeal to customers. Customers can view the brand’s products online and then come to the stores and try them on. The store acts as a large trial room, rather than a place for purchases. Even though customers mostly go home and by the clothes in their own time, customers who want the clothing there and there can also make a purchase just like an average store. People who are adverse to the idea of buying clothes online have the option to try on the clothes and see for themselves if they are happy with the quality of clothes they will be receiving. The brand also always makes sure that all the products which are shown online are always available in stock in the physical stores.
