Here’s a fun Ask Tug success story! A reader wrote in recently looking for some Lanesboro Undershirts and I was able to connect her up with an eBay seller who was able to locate some and put them up for sale:
hey my bf used to have lanesboro undershirts and loved them. he has broad shoulders so i guess thats why he likes them. do you know where i could buy some? ebay doesnt have them in medium. just small. or if you dont know can you recommend another kind that are similar to those?
Well, I sent a bunch of emails out to different folks, one of which was a seller on eBay and I heard back from the seller pretty quickly. She wrote:
Thanks for the offer! I currently carry Lanesboro Crew neck undershirts, v-neck undershirts and A-shirts. The medium size crews can be found here:
My store link is www.FindsAndTreasures.com
Good luck with your blog –
Let’s see if I hear back from some other folks who can help the reader out with her request!
Update 8/06/09: Well, to my surprise I actually heard back from the investor relations department of the parent company, BJs! No new news to share, but I’m really impressed that folks at corporate headquarters were nice enough to email me back. Here’s the email I received:
Lanesboro is our brand and is only sold at BJ’s Wholesale clubs. The reader can visit our website www.bjs.com or call 1-800-BJS-CLUB for our locations to locate the undershirts.
