What a ‘Present’ Surprise!

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6AtOuoF8DI?hd=1&w=600&h=368]

In mid-November, a few of our employees took to the streets of the Pittsburgh area, where the ModCloth fulfillment center is located, and surprised customers by hand-delivering their packages. Not only that, but each of these customers was presented with two $50 gift certificates – one for them to keep, and one to give to someone else!

As you can see in this video, not every delivery attempt was successful, but the ones that were confirmed what we’ve always known: ModCloth has the best customers ever!

This excellent adventure was part of our on-going Spread the Cheer event, and we want to keep the festiveness flowing with a giveaway. From now through 12/25, purchase a gift certificate of $50 or more, and you’ll automatically be entered in a daily drawing to win a $50 gift certificate! Whether you decide to keep it for yourself or pay your good fortune forward is totally up to you.

Before you head off to buy a gift certificate, be sure to check out all the fun photos from Spread the Cheer delivery day, and our winners’ experiences continuing the chain of cheer, on Facebook.

Happy holidays!

      I love it, too! In my opinion, it truly is one of the most overlooked/underrated cities in the country! Need to schedule a trip back there soon.

    I recently placed my first ModCloth order (well, 2 orders within a few days of each other actually – ha ha!) and it got here overnight! I was so shocked I had to look and see where you’re located and when I saw Pittsburgh it made my day — I’m just “up the road” in Erie! 🙂 That’s so fun that you got to meet some of your customers in person like that. You’re welcome at my place any time! 😉 Ha ha
