May 2012 - Press Release
One Shop For You (1shop4u) was started in the beautiful Methow Valley in North Central Washington, in the North Cascade Mountains, in April 1996 with the original corporate name of JJ&D, Inc.. The name was changed in year 2000 to more closely match our web domain name of 14ushop.com - thus it is now 1shop4u, Inc. You can also use 1shop4u.com as both domain names will reach our web site.
1shop4u.com is a member of BBBOnline, where you can check up on us through an independent organization. We are located at 506 Twisp Avenue West in Twisp, Washington with a mail address of PO Box 728, Twisp, WA 98856-0728.
The originator of this online store, Jim Haverlock, has over 45 years of furniture industry background, having started at age twenty, owning and operating 4 stores within 12 years. After 28 years operating these stores, he then became a furniture representative selling to other stores in N.Dak., S.Dak., Montana, North Carolina and South Carolina for the next several years. Yes, five states, spread apart by hundreds of miles, was an extremely interesting territory, however he managed to call on every store in those locations every 6 - 8 weeks honoring his word to do so.
The concept, or "mission statement", for this store has, and will be, one of "personalized service" and "customer is first". This has enabled our online store to grow each year that it has been in service. Repeat satisfied customers, who also refer us to friends, family and neighbors, have enabled this growth. This type of growth is exactly the way it should be - good quality products, good customer service and satisfied, happy people.
Further growth is planned for the future with more factory lines being added and the original ones being constantly updated. Updating of the web site has also been a never ending process. Since the original inception, the site has changed many times over in the way it looks, the way you can navigate through it, but always with you in mind. We offer complete factory collections, not just select items. This affords you the opportunity to make better choices and often you can have items custom manufactured to fit your decor and needs. With this endless choice availability comes constant updating by our web designers. 1shop4u.com is also working on bringing "GREEN" (ECO friendly) products to our store, to serve you and our planet.
A very unique and complex "shopping cart" was added in late fall of 2003 and has continued to be updated almost daily - with products, ease of navigation and always the ability to view categories or complete factory choices - with pages for both.
Operations Manager, Pam Purtell , is also a corporate officer and director for the company. Pam is most efficient in handling her duties, extremely cordial and friendly with each and every person she comes in contact with and all who do love her instantly. Pam is computer literate and understands the workings of each factory, knows the products offered within the store, and wants each of you to be satisfied and happy, and to return again in the future as well as to tell your friends and family how you received personalized, caring service - at an ' online store '.
An exciting extra is - the start of a non-profit organization called "Compassion Care Foundation" - whose web site address is www.compassion-care.org. Jim has helped those less fortunate and for years dreamt of a larger way of providing aid to the 80% of the world's population who live on less then $1.00 per day. 1shop4u.com contributes a percentage of sales to the Charity of your Choice through Charity World. Making purchases through Compassion Care will provide more help, so you can help, too.
