Boston Proper Coupons & Info
Boston Proper had a modest start in the fashion industry. Originally, the company started as a catalog that offered women’s clothing at competitive prices, however, Boston Proper quickly grew. Many women were very interested in the clothing that Boston Proper had to offer, which included tops, denim wear, pants, swimwear and much, much more.
Boston Proper was introduced in Boca Raton, Florida in 1951 as the Mark Group, Inc. The name was changed in 2004 to have a more broad appeal, and Chico’s FAS Inc. purchased Boston Proper in 2011. This was a large acquisition for Chico’s (NYSE: CHS) – which operates nearly 600 stores of their own. With the addition of Boston Proper to their company, overall sales for Chico’s have climbed drastically over the past three years.
The online shopping experience with Boston Proper
The Boston Proper web store is one of the most beautifully designed online retailers that I’ve ever seen. The design is minimal and unobtrusive, making your shopping experience an enjoyable one. The site is also clever to automatically determine the location from which you’re browsing and will automatically switch to the geographically appropriate one. Boston Proper ships to nearly every country in the world, and also gives the customer an option to view all prices in their local currency – super convenient!
The layout and categories are familiar, options ranging from: tops & bottoms, dresses & skirts to jackets & outerwear, are displayed along the top navigation bar. The New Arrivals section is also here, featuring additional categories with the latest from women’s fashion.
On the right hand side you will notice a small slide show of Trending items. This section is where the retailer will display their most popular items. The selection here is always updating, so make sure to check regularly if you want to stay up to date with the latest trends.
Coupons through Boston Proper
Boston Proper has a coupon policy that is fairly standard. While they do accept coupons both online and in stores, there are certain restrictions. It can be a bit of a guessing game as to which coupons can be combined, but the good news is that many of them indeed can be! Generally a good rule of thumb is that a “free shipping” coupon can easily be combined with a “percentage-off” coupon, but two “percentage-off” coupons cannot be stacked.
Competitor coupons and prices are not matched traditionally through Boston Proper. However, if you do find an item that was available at another retail store or online shop at a much lower price that was advertised on Boston Proper, you can claim a price adjustment as a one-time courteously. This adjustment must be made in the form of a phone call to the Boston Proper customer service department within 14 days of the initial purchase of the product.
