Pine Tree Candles Update

It's been a long time since I have posted anything and for that I apologize.

I have recently started to make some significant changes to the shopping cart we use. I will be adding some functionality and removing some of the less used features. This is all taking place off site so there will be no disruptions to the current operations.

I haven't decided if I'm going to redesign the layout of Pine Tree Candles yet. It really depends on time. I haven't had any complaints yet on the design aspect of it as far as ease of use and access to information and so forth. I have had good positive feedback on what features you like and don't like so I will be taking that into account on this site update.

Since I'm just starting it and also trying to get the spring scent collection going, it will most likely be middle of spring before it's complete. I will make another post when I have the spring collection ready to release and all the fall/winter scents will go on sale.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Fall/Winter Scents Debut

We will be debuting our fall/winter scents over the next couple weeks. We are introducing some new scents and brining back some of the more popular ones from last year.

Just made available today in Tarts:

  • Banana Nut Bread
  • Cinnamon
  • Pumpkin Bread
  • Jack Frost
  • Twigs & Berries
  • Sugar Cookie
  • Mulled Cider

We will be adding a few more and making all the above available for containers over the next couple weeks. Be sure to stop in and check them out.

I would like to thank all those who came to the Octoberfest this past weekend in Lowell, OH to see us. It was a very successful festival, but very hot. We were forced to close early both days because of the heat.

Thanks for reading and I will make another post when more scents are released.

Pine Tree Candles Update

It's been awhile since my last update so let me catch everyone up with what has been going on.

We have been very busy this past weeks with overhauling the website (again). Since our customers are our top priority, I decided to rebuild the site completely. I added some features and removed some others. The same theme is still in use.

List of changes:

  • Added Link Exchange area.
  • Added Gift Certificates.
  • Added Customer Loyalty Discount Program (see FAQs for details).
  • Added Events Calendar to Store front.
  • Added Catalog RSS Feed.
  • Added Candle Information Links to store front.
  • Added Clearance Category (all items 40 - 75 percent off).
  • Added Estimated Shipping link to shopping cart.
  • Added Package Tracking for UPS, USPS, FEDEX, and DHL for anyone.
  • Removed Forums.
  • Removed Customer Reward Points program.

Some other notable changes:

  • Changed the Product Information page to show more information such as Strength of Scent rating & Quantity of item in stock.
  • All shipping is now done through either UPS or USPS with a Local Delivery option for our local customers.
  • All orders receive 10% off their shipping total on every purchase.
  • We now have quantity discounts for certain items.
  • Our Newsletter no longer requires site registration.

Still in the works is an Affiliate program and our Wholesale/Fundraiser customers will be getting their own store front.

As you can see we have been very busy behind the scenes. We are also getting ready for our Fall/Winter collection and are really excited about this years choices of scents.

Be sure to stop by Pine Tree Candles and checkout the changes for yourself and let us know how we are doing.
