Part Three of this review is where your buck stops in Texas: You have plenty of options for online shopping and you know you’re in the right place. Halloween, after all, is not about getting the most scare out of online scams. It’s scaring the hell out of your friends!
It is no wonder that when I googled “Texas Halloween store”, Frankel’s Costume came up as the top result on the page. I visited the website and came up with the conclusion that web merchants can learn a lesson or two from Frankel’s. More than half a century of being in the business, Frankel’s even dominates the online locality of Texas. They are truly a shop to contend with.
To be the best in this business, you have to know how to update your store’s content so that customers seeking products online (in this case, Halloween costumes and related stuff) will find you. Do Frankel’s hire people to get them to the top of the results page? Probably. But this is not the whole point. Instead, to an online customer, this is an appealing place to shop for products they need.
This prominent Texas Halloween online store located in downtown Houston possesses all the elements necessary to sell online. Easy product navigation, social bookmarking, newsletter subscription (for repeat purchase) advanced search capability, great shipping options, awesome prices, secure and standard checkout transactions. If you have problems, however, you can only contact customer service during office hours. Of course, you can always read the FAQs or return policy section for answers to questions many online shoppers usually ask before or after purchase.
Although I didn’t find my Gogo Ren outfit here, I did find one that matches by typing “school girl” in the search box. Prep School Delinquent costume for Halloween. Hmmm, not a bad choice.
All International Fun-Shop’s Halloween items seem to be on sale.
For a Wednesday morning, their Live Support is offline, but you can leave a message as another option to reach them. It’s very easy to navigate around this Texas Halloween online store. The catalog is very extensive — theatrics accessories including makeup, lighting, decorations, music, and props. Their shipping options are even more phenomenal: They offer same-day shipping to merchandise on stock, as well as shipping for orders outside of the US. Who would have thought Seabrook, Texas has a gem of an online store for costume buyers? And yet they have been serving the Southeast Texas region for 30 years now.
It helps a lot that they have a customer testimonials page so as an online shopper, you know what type of feedback they’re getting even from buyers outside of Texas. Fun-shop.com has great elements of ecommerce support for online shoppers: map, newsletters, social bookmarking. I have a feeling that satisfied customers will return for Christmas costume shopping.
Over the Top Costumes
The yellow and orange graphics theme may not be a favorite for many people, but this Texas Halloween online store strives to provide an updated online catalog. Upon purchase, you have the option to not register, which is rare among many online merchants. We give a plus point to Over the Top Costumes for this feature. Navigating the store is very simple.
A few suggestions that apply to Overthetopcostumes.com as well as all other online store owners: it is always best to put your contact information and must-read data such as FAQs, return policy, and shipping on prominent areas of the web page, preferably in the main navigation menu. This way, online customers will not run around in circles or keep bugging you with calls asking about answers to questions you have already tackled in your website. Overall, this Texas Halloween online store may not be the ultimate destination for Halloween shopping this year, but it may be one great stopover for fun, ghoulish costumes you won’t find elsewhere in Texas.
