CatchOfTheDay is Number 1 – It’s Official!

We just got some GREAT news:

“Congratulations! Experian Hitwise is pleased to announce that http://www.catchoftheday.com.au is an Experian Hitwise Number 1 Award winner for January – June 2010.

During this period, http://www.catchoftheday.com.au ranked No. 1 based on market share of visits among all Australian websites in the HitwiseShopping and Classifieds – Department Stores industry.”

When we started CatchOfTheDay three and a half years ago who could have imagined we would reach this level? Using such a humble concept – one product a day – to beat all the majors including Target, K-Mart, Myer and Big W and be officially named Australia’s Number 1 Online Department store.

We are dumbfounded, stupefied, amazed, dazzled, blown-away, humbled, proud – but most of all we are grateful. It’s no secret that this success story was built on the support, loyalty, word of mouth and participation of YOU. Our members.

Throughout the years you’ve guided us when we were headed in the wrong direction and shown such wild support when we were headed in the right direction. Who could ask for more.

While we recognise this achievement, areas we need to further develop are also painfully obvious. Expect to see us make major strides in server capacity, delivery times and product variety. Everyday our team of buyers focuses on one thing alone – how do we delight, surprise and excite our members today?

The vision going forward is simple – give every Australian a reason to join the CatchOfTheDay family. Whether you are interested in sneakers, fashion, furniture or interior design. We will be breaking price barriers in every area and category. Expect to be dazzled!

Thanks again for your incredible support, the best is truly yet to come.
