Hello Fellow Travel Friends!
Although 2020 greatly disrupted the travel industry worldwide, it actually gave us here at Embark an opportunity to revaluate some of our stock and suppliers. After six months of being closed for some winter maintenance and spring cleaning, we are delighted to be reopening our online doors once again! We're also excited to announce a few little changes here on the website.
NEW MENU BAR
One of the first changes we've made is on our menu tab. Because we wanted to make it easier for you to shop around on the site, we've now divided our collections into two categories: Catalog (like Travel Accessories, Wanderlust Apparel, Travel Coffee Mugs, etc.) and Seasonal Collection Series. We're very excited about showcasing a variety of themed destination pieces under the Seasonal Collection Series! Here you'll find key categories including Embark Travel Lifestyle, The Americas, Islands & Coastlands, Europe, Africa, and Asia. No matter where your travels take you, you'll discover something unique and relevant to your adventures!
With this new layout, you'll be able to discover items by catalog type (such as luggage, travel fashion, or global trends), or by destination and color theme (our Signature Collection Series). We hope this new layout and organization will make your shopping more practical and inspirational.
NEW PARTNERS AND BETTER SHIPPING TIMES
Secondly, we're partnering with several new suppliers which gives us a whole new set of product to bring to you. This also changes our shipping operations, which means that shipping times are much quicker! We know you are excited about that as much as we are! No more waiting around for a few weeks for your product -- most of your orders will now arrive within a week.
This new shipping change does limit some of our availability to customers outside the US, so if you're shopping from a different country, please note if that particular product is available to you. Product available to only US customers is noted in the product description.
Third, we are adding all kinds of new product! This may take us a little while to get everything updated in our system, so please come back and visit us all throughout the summer and fall to see what's new. We're adding products almost daily to our website!
Fourth, we have so many new fun collections for you to enjoy. The time offline gave us some more opportunity to dream and plan, and so we are excited to showcase some of our inspiration to you! Just to give you a little preview of what we're adding, here are a few of our new traditional collections rolling out this summer:
- Travel Photography
- Travel Games
- Passport Holders, Luggage Tags, and Travel Wallets.
We're also adding several new curated collections in the Signature Collection Series such as:
- Colors of the Caribbean
- In Flight
- Salt & Air
- Adventure Awaits
- America the Beautiful
- From Paris With Love
And just to help you shop a little better for luggage, we've broken down our luggage collection into three easy categories: Luggage, Luggage Sets, and Weekend Luggage & Bags.
CONSTRUCTION & SURPRISES
Finally, as we are adding the new product and new categories to our store, you may see a little "construction" on our website. So if you hop on a collection page and there's no product listed yet, come back in a few weeks--there will be a surprise waiting for you!
Thank you all for your patience with us as we rode out the storm in 2020. We appreciate all of you who have supported us since we began the Embark journey in 2018. We look forward to seeing you again in our store this summer!
