NEW YORK, October 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Hammacher Schlemmer, America's most distinguished retail catalog company, has issued its renowned catalog for the first time to clients in the United Kingdom.
Since 1848 Hammacher Schlemmer has been the first to offer products like the pop-up toaster, the kitchen blender, and recent innovations like The Slide And Negative to Digital Picture Converter. Their steadfast adherence to finding transformative technologies, developing products that solve problems, and providing superior customer service has earned customers' trust for 163 years.
"For the past several years we've achieved strong growth and we are determined to continue our upward trajectory, making this an opportune time to offer our catalog and unique products to customers in the United Kingdom," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns.
The Hammacher Schlemmer United Kingdom catalog will offer many of the same unique products as the North American catalog, continuing the company's tradition of selling items that are the first of their kind or that solve a common problem. The product selection includes The Stainless Steel Wallet, a billfold woven from flexible stainless steel fabric, The Light Cycle, a motorcycle inspired by the cycle from the film Tron: Legacy, and The GPS Homing Device, a gadget that attaches to a keychain and locates your parked car or a hotel in an unfamiliar city.
The United Kingdom catalog will also include products that have earned The Best designation from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute, a non-profit consumer advocacy organization that researches, tests, and rates consumer products to determine which models are superior.
To extend their superior customer service overseas, Hammacher Schlemmer recently launched a version of its website in the United Kingdom-http://www.Hammacher.co.uk-so clients can easily shop, learn more about Hammacher Schlemmer, order a catalog, and sign-up to receive emails.
Customer service representatives are available 24 hours per day, seven day per week to answer questions via telephone at 0800-107-3090 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Shipping rates are only pounds Sterling 5.95 and if customers are unhappy with a purchase, they can return products within the United Kingdom.
"Our customers in the United Kingdom will have the same access to our merchandise and customer service that our North American clientele enjoys," explained Mr. Berns. "This includes The Hammacher Schlemmer Lifetime Guarantee, which allows customers to return a product for any reason and at any time."
With its dedication to quality, innovation, and customer service, Hammacher Schlemmer is poised to continue its impressive growth in North America and overseas, providing customers with products that are truly the Best, the Only, and the Unexpected.
