ONLINE RAZOR BLADE RETAILER PROVIDES FREE SHIPPING AND DISCOUNTED PRICES TO TROOPS SERVING OVERSEAS
RazorsDirect.com Brings the Conveniences of Home to Men and Women in Combat
Orlando, FL -- Feb 26, 2008 --


Clermont, FL (February 26, 2008) -- RazorsDirect.com, an online retailer of shaving products, is working with military families and charitable organizations to provide razors and refill blades at heavily discounted prices to American soldiers and Marines serving overseas. The company is also offering free shipping of these products as a way to give back to U.S. Troops and provide them with a taste of the conveniences back home.



“We constantly hear from military families that our soldiers and Marines serving overseas often cannot get the exact razor blade refills they use here in the states,” says Mary Hagglund, co-founder of RazorsDirect.com.  “Consequently, this becomes one of the key items requested from their families back home. We are happy to help them send these comforts to our troops.”



Razors Direct (www.RazorsDirect.com) specializes in bulk sales of razor blades and shaving products. Through buying these products in bulk and eliminating the cost of shipping overseas, military families and organizations have been saving up to 35% on each purchase.



Marine Vietnam Veteran, Tom Sowell, created the Iraq Fund nearly four years ago to begin sending supplies to U.S. Marines stationed in Fallujah.  As a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1799, he and his colleagues have essentially adopted the U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence Battalion.  He stumbled across Razors Direct on the internet and has been consistently working with the company every few months to provide the Marines with refill blades.



“I asked the Marines what they needed and razor blades kept popping up,” says Sowell.  “I went to Sam’s Club and a few other retailers but found that these stores couldn’t provide me with the quantity I needed and for a reasonable price.  So I got on the internet and found Razors Direct and there was no comparison.  Razors Direct sells me the refill blades for a fraction of what I’d pay anywhere else.  Plus, the company can handle the bulk sales that I need to supply the entire Battalion with razor blades.” 



Razors Direct is, says Walter J., "my only way to receive the type of razors I use while serving in Iraq."



Some of the other groups involved in the effort include Soldiers Angels, the Marine Corps Family Support Community, Lions Club branches, local churches, and local business people. Razors Direct ships blades to these groups, who then include the products in care packages sent to soldiers. Additionally, Razors Direct ships directly to APO / FPO addresses at no extra charge. These packages take between one to two weeks to reach Iraq.



"We have really been impressed by the lengths some charitable groups go to in order to provide our troops the luxuries they are used to at home," says Hagglund. "We like to think that we play a role in this effort and are proud to assist our troops, even if in a small way."



Since July 2003, Razors Direct has been selling a wide range of shaving products online and has grown steadily in the process. The company has sold more than 500,000 razors across the U.S. and shipped thousands of blades overseas to our troops. Based in Clermont, Fl., Razors Direct combines low prices with excellent service and a free shipping option. For more information, please visit http://www.razorsdirect.com.
