A Halfway House for Online Shopping Addicts

Hi, my name is Kelly and I am an online shopping addict. (Hi KELLY!) What’s funny about this is it’s actually Meg writing this MUHHAHAH! But really, Kelly is addicted… Online shopping is here to stay – but I think we can all agree it leaves something to be desired. I compare online shopping to reading a book on a Kindle – it will never beat a book from the library. You just don’t get that literary smell (smelling an electronic device makes you a really weird dude) or ink on your fingers from a tablet. BUT it has its place!

Luckily, we were introduced to an online/brick and mortar hybrid that serves as somewhat of a halfway house for virtual shopping cart fiends – Bonobos (say “bu-NO-bos”) Guideshop. How does this work, you ask?


Bonobos Buckhead Guideshop Launch Party

Step One: Make an appointment (usually an hour.) Try on anything you like and have a cold craft beer from the fridge (well, if you insist.)

Step Two: A knowledgeable Bonobos guide (bonus – they tend to be very fun to look at) will walk you through the entire Bonobos line and help you find your perfect fit.

Step Three: Walk out, no bags. A Guide will place your order and it will be shipped directly to your home or office. No baggage necessary. Easy peasy. 


Clearly, the idea of what’s convenient is changing – and Bonobos is banking on the fact that a great fit and shopping experience is more important to their customer than instant gratification (taking home a shopping bag.)

Does it work? Well, I left the store and ordered Stripes a pair of chinos for a holiday party – and they were on the steps a couple days later. It most likely had nothing to do with the amazing Moscow Mules they were serving at their opening party…
