What happened in 2015? And what are our goals for 2016?
Even if we are a little late, we decided to make a brief summary of our 2015 and give you a preview of our ideas and our plans for 2016.
In March 2015, Gleni suffered a great loss.
After a long battle with cancer, the founder and owner of Gleni passed away, leaving behind a great legacy and a great love for his dream.
Following this moment, we passed an even more complicated period, dictated by bureaucracy. Gleni had to change the company name, abandoning forever the title “Gleni of Arben Qoku” and becoming “Gleni Srl”.
We, however, did not get discouraged by the events and in August, we renovated our Boutique in San Benedetto del Tronto (in Via Risorgimento n ° 43 for those interested!), the operational base of all our ideas.
We changed the color, the layout and, in a sense, also the basic concept.
More spacious and “open” to the public, now Gleni Boutique, in San Benedetto del Tronto, has decidedly a look far more luxurious and refined, with sophisticated and elegant details,
fit for welcoming princes and princesses of the world.
To this topic we would like to dedicate a separate post, so let us know if you are interested!
We take this opportunity to thank all of those who stayed there beside us in our “dark” time: thank you, you have been an important help, without which we would not have ever made it.
But what plans do we have regarding 2016?
More determined than ever to carry on the dream of our founder, we have several projects in the works.
First of all, we have decided to work solely in retail, thus improving our brand name. Our wholesale customers, should take advantage of these last few months to make an order as the production to third parties will be discontinued soon.
Precisely because we are seeking to improve, we are developing new collections.
As always, we are committed in the search of the most special leather, but we will not stop at this: we will improve even more our attention to details, from the packaging, through the metal fittings and ending with the finishing of bags and accessories.
To make room for new collections, therefore, we have launched a period of all-out clearance. On our online Boutique www.gleniboutique.com , you can find items discounted up to 70% and accessories with a discount of 25%. Take advantage now as many of the models available on the site will no longer be reproduced.
Also, we will not produce more shoes. It was a difficult decision to make, but we believe it is necessary in order to enhance the quality of the bags and accessories. We will likely resume production of shoes in the future, even adding a women’s collection… but for now we cannot yet confirm anything!
Take advantage of the 30% discount for buying the last models remaining.
Last, but not least, the improvement of our sites. Perhaps in the course of a few months you will see changes in both the online Boutique www.gleniboutique.com as well as the brand site www.gleni.it. These changes are necessary to be up with the times, but above all for improving your shopping experience!
Finally, we would like to thank you for always being by our side and for your ever so warm support. Without you, who provide us reviews and compliment our work and our products, the passion and the dream that enliven our daily work would not make sense.
We want to thank you by improving even more our performance and the quality of our products.
Thank you and happy new year!
The Gleni team.
