This weekend, OnTrac will be supporting Newegg Inc. in their efforts to launch their first ever pop-up store August 16-18 in The Oaks shopping center in Thousand Oaks, California.
Newegg’s pop up store will be open on August 16-17 from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. PDT and on August 18 from 11a.m. – 7 p.m. PDT at 350 West Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks, CA 91360. All merchandise purchased in the store will be eligible for free next-day shipping from Newegg’s regional shipping carrier OnTrac.
“We are very excited to be a part of Newegg’s first ever pop up store event,” said OnTrac Vice President of Marketing Laura Peterson. “As a regional carrier, OnTrac is able to support Newegg’s efforts to maintain a high level of customer satisfaction because we are able to deliver to customers in every part of California overnight. That way, customers are able to enjoy their purchase faster, at no extra cost.”
Newegg will also offer limited-time deals and discounts to customers, including a chance to win up to 30 percent off purchases made in-store. For the early bird shoppers, the first 100 customers to come by the store on each day will receive a free gift.
OnTrac became one of Newegg’s shipping carriers in fall 2012 and has since worked to help provide more efficient shipping and faster transit time for Newegg’s customers.
“Newegg has always looked for better ways to serve our customers,” reports Kunal Thakkar, VP of Operations for Newegg Inc. “One of the biggest reasons to select OnTrac as our regional carrier partner was because it helped us reduce our shipping costs, which we are able to pass on to our customers.”
The Newegg shopping experience is unique in that they rely not only on the expertise of their employees, but also the expertise of their online community with a significant online presence including 2.6 million product reviews. Newegg Inc. has invested a lot of resources into not only maintaining, but being innovative with their technology and platform.
It is the high demand for the products Newegg sells that makes their method of delivery so important. OnTrac’s regional hub-and-spoke model enables us to deliver in less time with less cost to the customer.
“Having a diverse shipping portfolio enables companies to save money by allowing them to be strategic with their deliveries,” Laura Peterson, Vice President of Marketing said. “In the West, OnTrac is able to save companies time in transit, which decreases cost and increases customer satisfaction.”
From Los Angeles, OnTrac is able to deliver to every ZIP Code in California and the major metropolitan areas of Arizona and Nevada overnight, with two-day shipping to the rest of our service area.
“OnTrac has met the needs of our company by giving us flexibility, by providing a reliable service—a fast service, to our customers,” Thakkar said. “They’ve met both of the biggest purposes of eCommerce shipping: lower cost and faster time-in-transit. OnTrac has gone that extra mile—they’ve made our customers happier and they’ve exceeded our expectations.”
Since the partnership began, OnTrac has been able to significantly reduce Newegg’s transportation expenses while simultaneously giving them faster time in transit at Ground Rates. OnTrac looks forward to its continued partnership with Newegg and the opportunity to provide the company with faster delivery times at lower prices.
