It's exciting day here at the magic shop. The Merchant of Magic just shipped our 100,000th order online.
It's a really great feeling to know that the magic shop has helped so many magicians build their magic acts and discover new tricks. I would like to say a huge thank you to all our customers for their support and friendship over the years. The team at the Merchant of Magic are all working magicians that live in breath performing magic. So every day we feel really lucky to be part of a team to reach out to so many other magicians that feel the same way.
I have a small confession to make.
I was planning to run a competition for the 100,000th order. I was going to make a really big thing about it, and hype up the fact that we were about to hit that milestone. We sat in a planning meeting to discuss ways to use that milestone to push more orders through the magic shop. But we all decided that that would not be fair for a very good reason:
We value, need, and respect every single order that we receive at the magic shop. From the budding new magicians that purchase just a deck of playing cards, the professional magicians that use our services to help adapt and expand their acts, right through to the TV magicians and studios that come to us to develop new magic tricks for the TV shows. Every single order allows us to keep our doors open, create content that can help new magicians starting out, and provide support and advice on how to use any of the magic which magicians order from us.
Having said that, we do want to mark the occasion, and the reward the customer that placed 100,000th order. Congratulations to Richard Cant from Newark. We have refunded your complete order so you get it free of charge.
