“Following a successful 10 years in business, our special retail shop needed re-energizing and repositioning online. Although the Bend Bungalow name has served us well over the last decade, demand online and outside of Bend moved us to expand into the Lone Crow brand with the help of The Savy Agency in Bend. Although we have a new look and presence, we are proud to keep the same great staff and service we’ve always been known for,” says Karen Letourneau, founder and sole owner.
Lone Crow's American crow mascot,“Bo”, represents a curious, clever, and intelligent creature attributes that reflect not only the shop's products but its customers as well. “We aim to inspire our customers with unique and hard-to-find items that are often American handcrafted and one-of-a-kind. With a name that stands for our home and source of inspiration Bend, Oregon our playful crow keeps us guessing and gives voice to the collective whims of our staff,” says Letourneau.
The new website (lonecrowbungalow.com) reflects the shop's foundation in Bungalow Style and features an updated design and streamlined customer experience, including an enhanced shopping area for customers looking for unique decor items and gifts. Online shoppers can use the site's new Favorites section to return later to review and purchase.
