At AG, we love online shopping. We do it all the time ourselves for everything from vitamins to camping gear and find it easier and more convenient than going to a store, especially since we are in a rural area where access to malls and shopping centers is limited. Shopping online allows us to find a much wider selection of whatever we’re looking for than most brick-and-mortar stores could ever offer, plus we can compare prices and read reviews before we buy. As with most things, though, the convenience of online purchasing has its trade-offs.
One of the challenges of virtual buying is not being able to touch and really see exactly what you’re getting and how it is packaged, making it hard to know how it will look when it arrives on your doorstep. This is especially troublesome if you’re sending a vegan, organic, fair-trade gift and want to ensure an elegant first impression. Luckily, you don’t have to worry about this when ordering from us since everything we ship gets elegantly gift boxed, unless it’s one of our vegan gift baskets that have their own signature packaging.
To be sure that your gift is appropriately abundant but not over-stuffed, we offer several pre-set gift-giving options, elegant Gift Sets and gourmet Samplers, as well as the above mentioned vegan gift baskets, that are quick and easy to order and were designed specifically to look elegant and taste delicious straight out of the box. You are, of course, welcome to mix-and-match your own gift selection if you prefer (more on that next week).
We’ve very proud of the tantalizing photos we’ve taken of all of our products, and, if you peruse our site thouroughly, you’ll also find photos of our gift boxes, baskets, and even shipping boxes that we include purposefully so you can see exactly what you’ll be recieving.
Finally, we’re always here to help! Our friendly and knowledgeable customer service staff is available by phone and via the Contact Us page on our website. Write to us! I guarantee it’ll be a real personal (usually me) answering your questions and helping you in any way we can.
