L-D Center's Rejuvenated Web Store


Recommended Posts

I hope they're still adding things to the store, or else they are shockingly understocked. What's the scoop, Jamestownites?

 

I mean, they have no Lucy biographies for sale even though they have a picture of Love, Lucy and only a few seasons of ILL, ONE of HL, and ZERO for TLS. Weird...

They have all 6 seasons of ILL for sale as well as the Comedy Hours (though that set has its own section).

 

The other thing I find very strange is each product page lists 6 items, four on the top row and two on the bottom. Why not 8 products per page or (if they stick with 6 products) three on the top row and three on the bottom?

 

I also think its weird they have Long, Long Trailer and Forever Darling for sale but no Too Many Girls or Lucy and Desi boxed set.

I dun't thin it's weird, i thin it's stupid, just another example of that place never being run right!

Well, in all fairness, getting a site off the ground is an epic task. I'm sure they're working kinks out but there are some odd things going on, some of which I would think they'd want resolved before opening the new store. But I also know, from working with a GoDaddy domain name, that sometimes you'll have everything in place, make one change and suddenly a bunch of things have changed/messed up. Hopefully they'll have it all cleaned up soon.

When was the new gift shop site launched? If it's pretty recent, then I think it could be a good chance that they're still getting the kinks worked out as already mentioned.

 

When I was in Jamestown last month, some of the items (e.g.) books were in lower supply and they are re-ordering stuff I think. Plus, I heard some things may be out of print.

Maybe they just hired a bunch of Lucy Carmichaels to set up the website?

The new store replaced the old one within the last week, so its very new. Hopefully they'll get everything straightened out soon!
