Online Kite Store Gets Off to Flying Start
July 18, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports NewsCelebration, Florida – Three years ago, Britons Adrian Tennant and Nigel Pitts were at a trade show in Central Florida, looking for the latest kites and air toys to sell on their UK based website.
Today, their British kite empire extends half way around the world with the launch of The Kite Store the company’s new website for US customers, KiteStore.net (http://www.kitestore.net).
“Kites are a big piece of Americana thanks to American historical icons like Benjamin Franklin who discovered electricity as a result of flying a kite during a thunderstorm and the Wright Brothers whose first airplane actually evolved from a 5-foot kite they had flown a year before that first flight in North Carolina,” says Nigel Pitts, The Kite Store’s International Sales Manager.
Based in Celebration near Orlando, Florida, the online Kite Store offers U.S. customers a wide range of kites from throughout Europe, the Americas and Australasia.
“Kite flying is a wonderful way for families to get outdoors and spend quality time together. It’s a wonderful activity that can bring neighbors outdoors and socializing. In a world where we are constantly berated by so much stress and negativity it’s almost impossible not to feel happy watching a colorful kite sail through the skies,” says Pitts.
With a strong commitment to overall customer satisfaction, Pitts and the Kite Store management team have incorporated many shopper-friendly features based on extensive customer testing and feedback, Features such as real-time online chat with customer service representatives, multiple shipping options, real-time online tracking, and encrypted secure ordering make as stress free to buy kites online as it is to fly them.
