The Perfect Registry by Dana Williams June 10, 2013 by Geoff Bevington Leave a Comment A successful gift registry program is a very important component in the success of any great kitchen and tabletop store. The gift registry at Marcel’s launched shortly after our opening in September 2011. Since then, many couples have come in, walked the floor with one of our staff and item by item, created the registry of their dreams. In the ensuing months, before their big event, family and friends stop in to select gifts for the registrants and we all love not only helping them pick out the perfect thing, but getting to know them as well! Recently, our son Max and his partner Rob were married in northern Michigan. It was a small “destination” wedding, and their Marcel’s registry was busy busy busy!! My family and many friends live in Michigan and so do Rob’s. As the celebration neared, the phone was ringing and we were faxing and emailing copies of their registry, helping people shop over the phone and then wrapping and shipping their gifts. As Marcel’s retail manager, you can imagine my delight at seeing all those beautifully wrapped Marcel’s boxes waiting for them at the reception! And now for some very exciting news!! With the launch of our new and improved website, gift registries at Marcel’s are now available to view on line! Simply “click”, “search” and voila!! Whether you stop in and see us, give us a call or visit us online, we’re here to help you shop for a gift your registrant will cherish!
