I'm helping my dad move his business online. He sells imprinted sportswear, the good stuff, and he's spent the better part of the last forty years, traveling the roads of the Carolinas (and Virginia, too).
If you're in that part of the country, and you've bought a t-shirt to show your support for one of the local college teams, the odds are pretty good that my dad had something to do with getting that shirt in the store for you.
Though I can selfishly admit that back in 1983, when N.C. State won the NCAA Championship, those Official Brickyard Survivor shirts were my idea!
Anyway, the same is true if you bought a nice souvenir shirt from your vacation at the coast (from the Outer Banks to Hilton Head) or in the beautiful North Carolina mountains!
I'm hoping that I can help him get off the road, at least to a degree. It's good for business, since he'll be able to let his customers view his wares online, at their convenience. This will be especially helpful when he has something new, and can let them know with a phone call or an email, allowing them to stay up-to-date as never before.
Of course, as you know, there are already a couple people online selling t-shirts and the like. Maybe more than a couple.
He's not looking to take over the world, and has no allusions that this will become something like winning the lottery. But it would be pretty cool if this could help him get off the road a bit, and maybe take a trip out west to see one of his favorite kids (that would be ME)!
Not much on the website just yet, but you can check it out HERE (particularly if you're interested in getting a St. Patrick's Day shirt)! And even if you don't want to buy anything today, I'd appreciate it if you'd check it out and let me know what you think! Is there something missing? Something I should fix or change?
I'll keep you updated on the progress, and everyone's invited over when he and my mom come out to visit!
