Is this page really an advertisement? Should it be deleted? Albatross2147 11:08, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
- I wasn't the one who started the page but have added a bit to it. I also work for the company during holiday "peak" seasons, so take that as a disclaimer or however you like to. I don't see this as being an advertisement any more than IBM, GE, or Apple. They're advertised on Howard Stern, Bill O'Reilly, and several other major radio shows across the U.S. so they are becoming a household name. As such, the number of people who come across this article because they want to know where the company came from and it's history would, in my mind, heavily outweigh the number who feel that it's "just an ad". Granted, I work there because I like the work and the company but it's also interesting to me that it started, literally, from a guy with a cart. Dismas 12:24, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
2 T's or 1
Vermont Teddy Bear Company has recently placed a permanent redirect on vermontteddybear.com (2 t's) and is currently directing all traffic to vermonteddybear.com (1 t). Requesting that you please revert back to this address. I attempted to change once but it was reverted by 'dismas'. thank you.
- I've worked there for some time now and we've always told people that it had two T's. The one T thing is new. I'll change it back even though I'd say it's silly of the company to have done that seeing as how Vermont and Teddy would make two T's. Dismas 19:32, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)
- Thanks for making the url fix to VTBC, dismas. I was not aware you are currently employed with VTBC. Currently, we are not at liberty to discuss in further detail on a public discussion forum. I would like to request that you contact the VTBC corporate webmaster for further information. We also have a few questions regarding wikipedia that you may be able to answer. Thanks so much.
Whats next.. these guys are amazing marketers.. now they have thought up a "Barefoot and Pregnant" to honor mothers day (2nd biggest sales event in the company's year) They must be doing this for the TV coverage.
