Harry & David & You
[youtube id=”w_fW28dUad4″] by: Sophie Gayot There are many ways to buy products from Harry & David, the 75-year-old gourmet gift company. They have a website, a 24/7 call center (1-877-322-1200), catalogues and 126 retail stores throughout the country, making it one of the largest in the US. But this is a big country, so to make our lives even easier, they have decided to open 16 pop-up stores for the holidays to get closer to you. Two weeks ago was the opening party of L.A.’s “The Orchard” (as Harry & David like to call their temporary stores) located at 105 N. Robertson Boulevard. Actors Billy Baldwin and Taryn Manning were among the celebrities to stroll around confections, famous Moose Munch popcorn, fruitcakes, fruit preserves, and fresh Royal Riviera pears grown in the company’s own orchard in Rogue Valley, Oregon. Watch my exclusive video interview with Gail Simon, VP of Brand Marketing & Communications, to learn more about this American institution. For more gift ideas, visit GAYOT.com gift section.
