|The market trend dubbed retailpocalypse is transpiring at an alarming rate as we head in to May 2018, and the retail casualties are piling up. Meahwhile, interest in meditation and yoga is still growing rapidly. The inspiring, stylish design details that adorn the places where people go to chill out—like meditation and yoga studios, are adorning living rooms, and are as poplular as ever in fashion. According to Wikipedia, the main factor cited in the closing of retail stores in the retail apocalypse is the shift in consumer habits towards online commerce. While the retail trend shifts from brick-and-mortar shops to online sales, not all types of shops are closing. While Toy’s R Us just closed all 735 of its U.S. stores, Build-A-Bear Workshop remained as the only major toy retailer surviving the retail apocalypse. Could it be that shops that offer more tailored, customized products are in a better positon to thrive? We believe that this is a time for differentiation and standing out in the market if there ever was one. Are you taking steps to set yourself apart?
At Great Eastern Imports, we’re here to help with a solution: Custom products that we can deliver to you with low MOQ’s, and quick turn-around times.

If you don’t see what you’re looking for in our catalog, and you’d like to make something special, we can create custom rings, earrings, pendants, amulets, or cuff links for your design! All you have to do is send us your artwork or graphic files, and we’ll create a new mold, model and master (prototype) for your piece, which we can use to produce them whenever you want to (re)order. The set-up charges for making them is fairly minimal, so you don’t have to worry about spending a fortune to test out your designs. And, the minimum quantity order for the production of your pieces is also reasonable. For rings, we require a minimum of 5 pieces per size, and for earrings, pendants, etc., you can order with a minimum of just 10 pieces total per design.
