Hey there, 

I've been getting some questions from subscribers about how the UberRUSH integration has been working out for some of our existing high-volume merchants. 

So we had a chat with Austin Scotti from KITH, a contemporary menswear brand from New York. KITH was one of the first merchants to try out this UberRUSH partnership.

In this quick interview, Austin shares his early experiences using UberRUSH and how his customers reacted to the launch.

[Case Study] How Lauren James Co. Used Shopify Plus to Rapidly Grow Brand Awareness & Sales

Ever wonder what happens when technology gets out of the way?

In 2013 Lauren and Lance Stokes were using Lauren's parent's basement as a distribution centre, her mom pitching in to help pack a surprise influx of orders .

“It was all hands on deck. We were designing and manufacturing and going to market ourselves...we were growing so fast that, overnight, we just couldn’t pack the boxes fast enough,” says Lauren.

That was the moment they realized they would have to hire employees and find a real warehouse in order to maintain and grow their business.

Fast forward to today, Lauren James Co. now ships their products out of an 80,000 square foot warehouse – with 35 employees and counting.

“We’ve been growing right there with Shopify the whole time,” says Lance. “Our biggest challenge now is adapting and trying to scale with our growth.”

[Case Study] How Chubbies is Conquering The Men's Shorts Business on Shopify Plus

"Hey dude!"

That's how Tom Montgomery, co-founder of Vintage shorts retailer Chubbies greeted me when I hopped on a call to discuss his passion for "liberating the thigh" and bringing back the short shorts our fathers and uncles used to wear during backyard barbeques.

Quickly though, I realized the shorts are symbolic of something much bigger for Montgomery; the demise of the weekend.

You've probably felt it yourself; longer work weeks that creep into the weekend and steal some of the fun, relaxation, and memories weekends are supposed to create. Montgomery actually believes the weekend is endangered and is on a quest to save it.
