MyRegistry.com was founded by Oded Berkowitz in 2005. It was a new and unique concept of a Universal Gift Registry that enables you to shop for any item in any store worldwide. It took some time to establish itself and had to educate customers, used to traditional store registries, how a universal registry can simplify their lives. There is no need to select a particular retailer or a group of them to cover a wedding, a birthday, an anniversary or any such event. MyRegistry.com makes it possible for gift givers to buy the most desirable goods directly from the stores that carry it.
The company now offers in house solutions to make life easier for you. Baby Store, Kitchen & Housewares, Bridesmaid Gifts, Groomsmen Gifts, Baby Bump and One Fine Wedding are some of company blogs that cater specifically to these occasions. They have an assortment of online stores to back up their suggestions. Over the years the site has made its services more and more convenient. Now even some charities and nonprofit organizations make use of it to generate suggestion lists for needed supplies and other items.
Oded Berkowitz had started this business with 12 years of Wall Street experience behind him and has used all his business acumen to create a new industry from scratch. They now deal with requests ranging from a private island to a diamond encrusted pacifier. The site also gives you a good understanding of the trends in the market. For example, new brides seem to be focusing on their homes, not just the kitchen but the rest of the home with items like furniture, rugs and items for other rooms in the house. With a universal gift registry around you are never in a position where you do not know what to get someone.
