Freshpair the next to go?
Just in time for the holiday. Frank from Freshpair commented below to let us know they have changed ownership and are in the process of bringing in new merchandise. So keep an eye on what they’ll be adding to their inventory.
Thought I’d do another update on them even though nothing as changed much. Still not much in the way of their selection especially if you are a bikini or thong wearer. Basically what they are carrying you can probably find at a local store. I thought if they were restructuring or changing things up that there would be some sort of change by now. They’re probably getting to a point where their old customer base is going to becoming loyal to other online retailers. Guess we’ll keep waiting and see what happens.
Just checked out Freshpair today and they no longer have their 50% off sale, so looks like they could be just changing up stock or reorganizing things. At the moment doesn’t look like they are carrying as much in their bikini and thong categories like they were. Will still be keeping watch and see what changes there.
This is just speculation based on what I have seen over the last few weeks. Freshpair has been running a 35% off sale saying it’s their biggest sale ever. Today I visited the site to see if it was over and now it is their biggest sale ever at 50% off. So it seems that they could be following in the footsteps of Undergear. I mean if you compare how Undergear went out of business to Freshpair, it is a similar pattern with their sale. They started with a pretty good discount and then went to 50% off everything and nothing new coming in. It also says all sales are final. Unfortunately not much left to choose from at 50% off that I have found. It seems to be hush hush like Undergear where I don’t see anything about them going out of business. At least I haven’t found any news about Freshpair as of yet, but I’ll be keeping my eye on them. I guess on the plus side for me is I did get some good deals when they were having 35% off. More on those pairs coming soon.
Freshpair started back in 2000 at the University of Maryland as an on-campus underwear delivery service before becoming an ecommerce retailer based in New York. They say they are the largest online retailer of men’s underwear and a leading retailer in women’s. Is the competition from the little guys starting to take down the big guns? I have noticed that Freshpair seemed to be a little more expensive than other retailers, but they also offered free shipping on all US orders. I know some people will pay a little more if service is better too. Anyone out there with any insight on this? What do you think? Is this the end of Freshpair?
