BasketsGalore's sister website is called Irish Gourmet and is our dedicated food hamper division. Many of the products we use in our hampers are from smaller, artisan, Irish suppliers and are great taste award winners so the name made perfect sense. Food hampers are so popular, it made sense to showcase them with their very own store.
After BasketsGalore had it's recent makeover, our IT & Design departments were on to their next task of updating our Irish Gourmet sites in time for Christmas. We find our corporate clients particularly like the Irish Gourmet brand and are drawn towards it's richness, particularly for Christmas hampers. We decided to keep certain elements of the design, but to modernise it slightly & narrow the categories up a bit. The images have also been rejuvenated and the shopping cart will also be upgraded to the one step checkout we previously blogged about.
We are busily adding all the products and hampers to the new store and we hope to launch it today! Here is a sneak peak of how it will look. Wish us luck, and we hope you like the new Irish Gourmet.
