Online Shopping for Baby Boomers

Here’s a new online retailer focused on the needs and lifestyles of Baby Boomers. The boomshop strives to make the lives of Boomers easier, healthier and more active.

 
While online shopping offers great convenience, it can be a hassle finding online stores that offer products that fit your needs. You can use keywords that narrow the search but you still have to delve through a mass amount of inventory in order to find what you want.

As Boomers, we generally get lumped in with the generic term “adults”. Of course, we know that 25 year old adults have very different tastes and needs than 60+ adults.

Here’s a new online retailer focused on the needs and lifestyles of Baby Boomers. The boomshop strives to make the lives of Boomers easier, healthier, more active, and simply more fulfilling by offering products that they’ve personally tested and selected with them in mind.

The first thing I look for, if I’m considering buying anything online, is the “security information”. I want to be sure that my personal information is not compromised and I’m dealing with a legitimate business. The boomshop has this covered plus a telephone number you can call if you have any questions.

As I navigated around the site, all of the categories were at my finger tips, just one click away. This made it easy to zero-in on items that interested me.

Their product line is varied and includes items used in the home to health and wellness. I checked out all the product pages on the site and from what I can gather, everything appears to be top quality. Perhaps because it’s a relatively new site, sadly I found the selection limited in many categories.

Cost is crucial to many shoppers and this online retailer has items at a fair price. However, I was hoping to find  more products in the “On Sale” category.

My overall impression is that boomshop has many nice features and as it grows, I look forward to shopping from a selection of carefully selected items. I’m a boomer and I want my  shopping experience to be easy.

Editor’s Note: We at Not Just the Kitchen don’t usually post reviews but made an exception because we thought the boomshop might be of interest to our baby boomer visitors.

Last week, I ordered some steak knives and three days later, they were in my cutlery drawer. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and attractiveness of the knives.
