[Case Study] How Lauren James Co. Used Shopify Plus to Rapidly Grow Brand Awareness & Sales

Ever wonder what happens when technology gets out of the way?

In 2013 Lauren and Lance Stokes were using Lauren's parent's basement as a distribution centre, her mom pitching in to help pack a surprise influx of orders .

“It was all hands on deck. We were designing and manufacturing and going to market ourselves...we were growing so fast that, overnight, we just couldn’t pack the boxes fast enough,” says Lauren.

That was the moment they realized they would have to hire employees and find a real warehouse in order to maintain and grow their business.

Fast forward to today, Lauren James Co. now ships their products out of an 80,000 square foot warehouse – with 35 employees and counting.

“We’ve been growing right there with Shopify the whole time,” says Lance. “Our biggest challenge now is adapting and trying to scale with our growth.”
