Corporate Santas can fill their employees' Xmas stockings at Kazoo & Company
It’s hard enough for most people to figure out how to satisfy their own kids when it comes to holiday toys, much less to know how to delight the children of their employees and their best customers.
But the elves at Denver’s distinctive Kazoo & Company toy emporium, located in Cherry Creek, have just the service to make every company CEO and senior executive a hugely popular Santa. It’s a one-stop, personalized corporate-buying service that makes holiday gift-giving a no-brainer.
Oh yes, it’s also quite affordable, providing corporate purchasers a 20% discount and free gift-wrapping.
Diana Nelson, the dynamic owner of Kazoo & Company, discussed her innovate Christmas corporate gift service with the new 710 KNUS AM business-to-business radio newsmagazine, Business Unconventional. B. Unconventional airs each Sunday at 8 a.m. Denver time.
Nelson explained to B. Unconventional hosts David Biondo and Dean Rotbart that business executives can drop by her store, which offers free parking, and work quickly and efficiently with a dedicated and expert Kazoo & Company customer service expert to select appropriate toys for all the children on their corporate holiday lists.
Many companies have discovered that purchasing holiday gifts for the children of their employees and best clients is a wise investment in relationship building. In fact, adults are frequently more grateful to receive a carefully selected present that delights their children than they would be to receive some cookie-cutter, logo-imprinted corporate gift for themselves.
Unlike the sales staff at big, impersonal stores, such as Target and Walmart, the friendly staff at Kazoo & Company participates in continual training to ensure they are knowledgeable about all of the toys, games and crafts sold in their store, which carries 60,000-plus items.
Many of Nelson’s colleagues have worked with her for more than a decade and often know customers and their children on a first-name basis. (Who at Walmart recognizes you and your children and has advised you on purchasing the right educational toys for them year-in and year-out?)
More importantly, the quality and value of items at Kazoo & Company far surpass those of mass-marketed toys and games. Nelson and her team labor year-round to identify merchandise that is fun, educational and built to last – often for generations. Much of the store’s inventory can’t be found at any other Colorado retailers.
Nelson has owned Kazoo & Company since 1998 and now enjoys a nationwide customer fan base and a reputation for excellence. Kazoo & Company already has a franchise at Denver International Airport. Now Nelson is in the process of reviewing applicants to authorize additional out-of-state franchises as the popularity of her concept has attracted interest from many regions of the country.
“Value and great customer service are the recipe for success in any economy,” notes Biondo, a veteran financial advisor and the B. Unconventional co-host. “Nelson and Kazoo & Company demonstrate that it is possible to successfully compete with major national chains by outthinking and outperforming them each and every day.”
Kazoo & Company’s corporate buying service is available year-round, not just at Christmas. Executives often use the service to track and fulfill gift-giving obligations for birthdays and special occasions, too. The store also offers gift certificates, which allow employees to select their own gifts for their children.
For more information, contact Nelson by phone at 303-322-0973, or drop in anytime to consult with her and her helpful staff. The store is located at 2930 East Second Avenue in Denver. You can also “window shop” at www.kazootoys.com.
The holiday season is bearing down on us, so now is the perfect time to cross gift-buying off your holiday to-do lists.
Hand the toy-buying responsibilities off to Nelson and her crew. They’ll not only take responsibility for your list, they’ll even check it twice – just to be sure.
