Cardinal Hayes High School has been working diligently to enhance our online presence – last year we initiated a new Alumni website located at http://alumni.cardinalhayes.org and we also increased our visibility on several Social Media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. And now in 2012, in response to the countless requests to have an online store for Hayes, we’ve pushed ahead and it’s finally here!
Through BIG BEAR NY, a subsidy of Algonquin Services in Buffalo NY and their more than 60 years of experience in the garment decoration business, we are ensured of quality and consistency for the entire Hayes Family. Located at https://alumni.cardinalhayes.org/shophayes . SHOP NOW!
What this means for Hayes:
For anyone involved with Cardinal Hayes High School, the HAYES SHOP allows them to buy merchandise in support of their favorite teams and/or the school by simply logging-on and creating a username and password for secure and express checkout. Since the site is secure, credit card information can be stored after your first purchase so you can shop freely the next time you visit us. No more carrying cash to Hayes functions looking to buy sweatshirt and hats only. We have expanded and will continue to do so until we have a well round assortment of Hayes items we can all be proud of.
Offering top of the line apparel like NIKE and ADIDAS was not cost efficient for the school. We would only keep limited supplies on hand and have to turn away customers because of sizing issues. Now we carry every size from XS-4XL.
What will Hayes’ online store provide?
Other than the typical sweatshirt, t-shirt and hats, Hayes will be able to provide: sports pullovers, down vests, fleeces, sweatpants, shorts, athletic jerseys and varsity jackets. We will also provide hard goods like: bags, branded mugs, notebooks, pens, mouse pads and umbrellas, just to name a few. Most importantly, the HAYES SHOP will provide you with the ability to purchase Hayes gear in any quantity and any sizes you’d like…24/7.
How does this benefit Hayes?
All orders are submitted directly to BIG BEAR NY. Once ordered, your selected item(s) will be packed and prepped for delivery… shipping will be arranged by BIG BEAR NY and mailed to you directly via UPS. In the past the school would order merchandise, select sizes and art work, and ship the order from Hayes. Often times whatever sizes were left over weren’t sold. The time and energy spent on ordering, shipping, housing and counting inventory can now be put to more efficient use. The HAYES SHOP will also provide various seasonal items that will be more appealing to the masses.
All proceeds generated from the online store will benefit the students of Hayes directly.
