"We cater to the geek and kid inside all of us -- at home, work, or on the road," said President Lee Gersten. "At work, where stress levels have continued to rise in recent years, more companies are embracing office toys and personal decor to help reenergize their workforce, ignite creativity and fuel teamwork."

Driven to record sales this year by a slate of new bestsellers and exclusive goodies, Christophe Monette, CEO of Kleargear parent Descoteaux Boutiques, has been pleasantly surprised by the dramatic shift in product mix and in-house product development as the direct result of customer feedback during the first two years under the DBS banner.

"When we put the customer in the driver seat a year and a half ago," Monette shared, "we didn't know where they would take us.  Their collective genius, and Kleargear's responsive team, helped us build a more innovative and collaborative culture at Kleargear and a delightfully renewed sense of fun."

Customer feedback also drove new store improvements including pre-order and back-order capabilities, enhanced order communication, simplified navigation and returns processes, and inspired more detailed product information.  "We sell fun," said Gersten, "and we're removing obstacles in the path of delivering it."

"Today it's easier than ever before to lose oneself in the demands of work and school that so many adults have simply forgotten how to have fun," added Monette.  "At Kleargear, we can rediscover that lost part of ourselves.  George Bernard Shaw said it best: 'We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.'"

Kleargear's most popular desktop distractions this season include:

Melting Snowman

Cthulhu Ski Mask

USB Heated Gloves

Finger Hockey

Headcase Desktop Nap Pillow

Kleargear is donating 2% of net sales between November 17th and December 17th to The American Red Cross in support of our friends and neighbors affected by Sunday's devastating tornado outbreak across the Midwest.
