I just want to thank you for such great service! I purchased Quiet® Reusable 26dB earlier this week and was very impressed with the price for 5 pairs, and relieved you don’t charge ridiculous prices for postage!
The earplugs are much better than any i have tried before, and I have just had the best night’s sleep I have had in months! Fantastic service, many thanks.
So, what was in that DHL delivery which we hinted at yesterday?
Firstly, more of our everyday products to keep us – and you – going well into 2010 so there’s no danger of those horrible “out of stock” notices you see on less well-run websites.
Secondly, a couple of old favourites which we’re pleased to have back on the Snorestore shelves:
Mack's Shut-Eye Shade
1. Mack’s Shut-Eye Shade – a shiny satiny sleep eye mask with adjustable straps. Lightweight and light-blocking, you can take one of these with you on your travels, or just keep it by your bedside for those occasions when your partner’s intent on reading into the wee small hours and you just want some kip.
Click here to buy the Mack’s Shut-Eye Shade from Snorestore for just £7.50.
Mack's Ear Seals
2. Mack’s Ear Seals – a pair of reusable and washable earplugs with a removable cord which you can use either for cutting down incoming noise, or keeping out incoming water. Yes, they’re dual use and therefore suitable for watersports, bathing, showering, DIY, concerts, factory noise etc etc.
Click here to buy a set of Mack’s Ear Seals for £5.00.
True to their word, DHL today delivered us a further huge shipment from the USA, less than 48 hours after we placed the order with one of our suppliers over there. This is a fantastic feat of logistics on the part of the brilliant folk at McKeon’s, the DHL co-ordinator who called yesterday to say the shipment was on a plane over the Atlantic at that moment, and the DHL driver who brought the towering stacks of boxes to our warehouse this lunchtime. A belated thanksgiving thanks to everyone involved.
As we head into the frantically busy period that is December, we’re taking the time not just to review our stock levels, but also the products which make up that stock.
Obviously, some products sell better than others, and our best seller lists, visible at the bottom of our home page, are updated on a regular basis so everyone can see what’s popular right now.
But some products never make it onto the best seller chart. It’s not that these products are no good, it’s just that they are (usually) earplugs for more specialist applications, such as for musicians, or for keeping little ears warm and dry. These sorts of products are just as important to us as our best sellers and we’ve no plans to stop stocking them.
There are though, a handful of products which we’re going to say goodbye to. We’ve kind of come to the end of the line with them and frankly, if the feedback doesn’t cut the mustard, they don’t deserve space on our shelves.
Uvex Hi-Com Earplugs
Instead, we’re actively researching brand new products to fill the gaps. One of them, Uvex Hi-Com, came online just yesterday. You can find this fluorescent little beauty here.
We’re also revisiting some old favourites, products which we used to stock but which through sheer laziness we allowed to slip off the list. More on those, hopefully, tomorrow, if DHL live up to their promise on the phone this morning
Sometimes we get compliments without even knowing it. This arrived in our inbox courtesy of the Royal National Institute for the Deaf’s tinnitus forum:
Q. “Can any fellow sufferers recommend some ear protection/plugs which will protect me at concerts/gigs.
Don’t really know where to start.”
A. “You get what you pay for really. The best gig plugs run to about £120 and offer the best ear protection, but obviously are intended for professional use at that kind of price. Most plugs offer between 15-40 dB supression. The one’s I have used over the years came from http://www.snorestore.co.uk and set me back around £15… if I recall they offer around 22 dB noise reduction, which is usually enough for gigs and clubs. Have a look at the following link:
In my view, if you want cheap foam earplugs with high rated noise reduction, the above two companies are the best in the UK. They will both sell a trial sample over the phone if you wish.”
Well isn’t that nice! Thanks guys.
