This Article Brought To You By:
This week, InParisTexas will be turning its focus onto Have A Blast, a company that is owned and run by Steve Gordon. If his products interest you, please call (903)517-6637 to find out about prices.
How long have you been in business?
HAB has been in business since June 2012, started as a hobby then I realized there was interest by the public in the products.
What products or services do you offer Paris, Texas?
The first thing I offer is an option to purchase a product that can be custom ordered and designed to meet the customers needs. I offer personalized and customized sandblasted glass products such as different size mugs, wineglasses, coffee cups vases, candle holders, lit glass blocks, framed art and more…basically if it’s glass it can be sandblasted or etched.
Do you have any new services or products that you will be offering soon?
We have been very involved with meeting local business owners and creating ways to help them market their own business. Making products with business logos to present to clients help brand their own business and serves as a way to say thank you.. Wedding season is coming up and the need to have etched stemware is something I am excited to be a part of. HAB also has a retail presence in Creative Candy Designs in downtown Paris. The owners have been very helpful and gracious in allowing me to do that. My goal is to keep around 100 pre-made items for purchase at all time, and if it needs to be personalized we can do that too.
Any upcoming special events in-store? This could be contests, open house, special sales or offers, etc..
HAB plans on being an outdoor vendor at any and all functions where it is allowed to help expose what we do to the public, and meet more great people in Paris. In the past, the events we have done allowed us to make relationships that exist to this day. Also, Paris Blues Society members can receive a 20 % discount when ordering and also Pick your prize on PLOM every Wed night…
What makes your business stand out from businesses that offer similar things to the public?
My business is 100% about customer satisfaction. I am dedicated to making the buying process as easy and fluid as possible. The sandblasting is done here in Paris, not sent off, and I take extra step to make sure what the customer wants is what the customer gets. Local delivers are made at no charge and gift wrapping when appropriate. HAB has a quick turn around on finished products and when local no shipping costs also. To my knowledge, HAB is the only business doing what we do, I am very thankful to everyone that has helped HAB get off the ground (especially including InParisTexas.com and PLOM), meeting so many nice people in our community thru the Facebook page and in person has been the best thing…As long as there is a need for a personalized one of a kind gift, HAB is going to do the best to fill that need.
Is there anything else you would like to make Paris, Texas aware of?
Only that we look forward to meeting more great people in 2013 and are proud to give another shopping and buying option with a customized and personalized gift whether in person or thru the FB page. Have A Blast is proud to be a part of the small business community in Paris, Texas.
