Have you ever googled for a luggage shop near your home in order to find a place to buy a new suitcase or cabin bag? I know that I certainly have, but then I realised – we all have a ‘luggage shop near us’ when we shop for luggage bags online. I don’t know why I had never considered buying a suitcase online in the past, but it makes so much sense when you think about it.
Buying luggage bags online is easy, convenient, and so much cheaper than going to a luggage store, where all of the bags have been marked up to pay for rent and salesperson commissions.
We here at Flight Knight love selling suitcases online – for us, it’s the only way to do business. Here are just a few of the reasons why you should buy your next suitcase
- Say goodbye to overpriced mark-ups – Retail space costs a lot of money in rent, utilities, and staff labour. Those costs then get added to the price that you pay at the cash desk. That means that the cabin bag that costs £30 online would cost upwards of £50 when you buy it on the High Street or in a shopping mall. I know which one I prefer!
- Shop from the comfort of your home – You probably already do the majority of your clothing and beauty shopping online, so why not buy your luggage bags online? There is certainly something quite liberating about shopping for your next suitcase when you’re in your pants and in front of the telly!
- You won’t face pressure from commission salesclerks – Have you ever been shopping in a department store or upscale mall and experienced salespeople hovering around you? I know that I have spent too much on something I’m not fully keen on because I felt pressured by a salesperson. That’s why I much prefer shopping for suitcases online instead of in person.
- It makes consumer research a lot easier – Before I buy anything, I like to look for reviews and do my consumer research. That makes sure that my hard-earned money gets spent on high quality products that have excellent reviews. It’s really hard to do this in person while tapping away on your phone, so I always prefer to buy luggage bags online.
- You can search for discount codes and sales a lot easier – Before I go through the checkout process, I like to look for discount codes and sales. This is much easier to do when shopping online than when you are in the shop. Who doesn’t want to save a little bit of money?
