Hello Everybody... "Hi Mike Of The Asylum'"
(My inner Simpsons monologue cries),
A wholehearted good to see you to all who have been
following us for a while, and a massive welcome to
all of who are joining us for the first time!
I must first of all apologise for my lack of updates/news.
There has been plenty going on at The Asylum,
so much in fact that this is the first time I've had a chance
to properly address everything. So let's have a recap....
We kicked off November with a shiny new
Delivery and Shipping pricing structure...
Not the most exciting news in the world and it still requires a few tweaks.
None the less, we worked on this for the benefit of you, our patrons,
and will continue to refine it until it is perfect.
That being said. We're currently running a promotion for
Free UK Domestic Delivery on all orders over £15.00.
Simply use Promo Code 'FS15' during checkout.
This revelation was followed up by a full site relaunch...
After having lost over 300 products from our online inventory
(Over 3/4 of the listings at the time!) they were painstakingly re-uploaded.
This gave us an opportunity to change/clean up the website and,
in our opinion, make the entire experience a lot more user friendly
on desktop and better mobile optimization.
We also introduced Live Chat last month. Available 10am-6pm, Mon-Sat.
That way if you have any burning questions I am personally available
to answer them there and then. We even added a return to top button
on our Desktop site (Very exciting) and will continue to work on/improve
functionality as time goes on.
We hope you agree that the changes made have only been for the best.
On the topic of inventory....
There is currently over 1,000 products listed, on site and ready to ship.
This was in part due to our good friends at Scorch! Comics who
graciously host the Comic Book portion of the site
(Find out more about Scorch! by clicking HERE).
With over 430 unique vintage, retro and current Toys available.
Over 540 back issue Comic Books. More than 40 miscellaneous pieces
from statues to video games and more being added all the time.
We have focused on significantly increasing our range to cover a
larger variety of collectibles for all. That way it shouldn't be
hard to find that piece to fill that hole in your collection
or something to satisfy your craving for nostalgia
(Although, we'll always pick up anything Ninja Turtle related if we see it).
We have now joined the world of Snapchat.
Not much to be said on this one, just be sure to throw us an +Add.
We try to snap behind the scenes of The Asylum as often as we can.
Our user name is 'CollectorAsylum'.
The only Gift Voucher that's not a cop out....
Gift Vouchers for The Asylum are now on sale.
You can purchase any denomination Between £5.00 - £100.00
(In £5.00 increments) and they are available in Physical or Digital form.
For more information on these click HERE.
Being December 2nd, we are well and truly in to the holiday season
and we love Christmas here at The Asylum.
Be sure to keep an eye out for our exclusive Promo Toy Photography
on Social Media. We had loads of fun getting our toys out and
running rampant with a camera!
To celebrate the season we're offering discounts across selected lines,
over 300 in fact, so make sure you grab a bargain by clicking HERE.
All discounted items can also take advantage of Free UK Domestic Delivery
as mentioned earlier.
I think that's everything for the Recap.
So what does the future hold at The Asylum?
The future of the The Asylum is bright and we have a lot in the pipeline.
We will however leave the details for a future blog installment.
In the meantime, please enjoy your stay. Check out all we have to offer and
let us know what you like about the recent developments and changes.
Let us know what you don't like, and let us know how you'd do things better.
At the end of it all, this is Your Asylum, help us make it
the best we can for you. That's exactly what the comments are for...
I've been Mike Of The Asylum. Thank you for joining me.
See you in The Asylum soon.....
