This week, WebUndies.com donated over 500 pairs of pajamas to a wonderful organization, Pajama Program. Two of the WebUndies.com owners, Gene and Ruth Marino made the trip to Red bank, New Jersey with a car full of boxes! They are pictured above with Gerri & Denise, of the New Jersey chapter of the Pajama Program.
WebUndies.com has experienced fantastic growth over the last 14 years and we are in the process of expanding our warehouse & fulfillment space (again). Rather than relocate all of our products, our partners pored over the list of products and selected items for donation. The big question was who should be on the receiving end. Terri Hunsinger, also a partner at WebUndies.com, had been following the Pajama Program’s efforts for several years and felt the organization was a great fit.
According to the official Pajama Program purpose, Pajama Program provides new pajamas and new books to children in need, many who are waiting and hoping to be adopted. These children live in various situations including group homes, shelters and temporary housing facilities and are shufﬂed often from one place to another. Many of them have been abandoned, abused or neglected. Most of these children have never enjoyed the simple comfort of having a mother or father tuck them in at bedtime with warm, clean pajamas and a bedtime story. How could we resist?

In our last blog post, we posted a link to all of the fun Superman underwear we carry for men. But what about the ladies? The kids? Anyone who has browsed our site knows that WebUndies has a big selection of products for every member of your household, and superhero stuff is no different.
WebUndies.com Superman & SuperGirl pajamas & Undies
Using the link above, you can see all 40+ products we have that feature the Man of Steel and his lady counterpart. Use our fantastic search to narrow down the choices by item type, size, gender and more. Just want girls’ pajamas or underwear for boys? No problem… it’s just a click away. Not just in blue and red, girls and ladies have pink, purple and black to choose from as well. our personal favorite for woman? SuperGirl panties- no one knows it, but you can feel like a superhero all day!
Since we opened our web site for business in 1999, we have been selling Superman underwear to men around the world. What man could resist the feeling of being the Man of Steel? Underoos were popular way back when and we are all kids at heart when it comes to undies.
Over the years, we have added Superman briefs and boxer briefs, for the non-boxer guys, as well as some really comfy lounge pants. DC Comics is great at merchandising and the selection is fantastic! The biggest superhero seller in 2012? Our Superman footed pajama for adults- complete with a cape! They are out of stock right now, but we are getting them in soon! Stay tuned- aside from pajamas, they make a great Halloween costume. Finally, for the ultimate lounger, we have Superman robes for men. Plush or fleece, you just cannot go wrong. They wash well, don’t fade and send the message that you think he is Super!
The one thing you can always count on from WebUndies.com is our quality. Every Superman item we sell (all of our products, actually) are officially licensed items. No cheap knockoffs here! Our products are also handled with care and inspected before they are shipped- not like buying it in a store when it has been handled by who-knows-how-many shoppers.

As a small, family-run business, WebUndies.com does a great job at exceeding customer expectations and treating everyone we deal with fairly, from vendors to customers and employees. Now, we are part of a group of businesses that feel we are on the verge of some very unfair treatment.
As large retailers like Amazon expand their businesses and open more warehouses, they are subject to collect sales tax in states where they are located. This was not an issue before they got to be so big and they delightedly sold products all over without collecting tax. Now that they need to start collecting tax, they seem to have “seen the light” and think it is fair for everyone to collect tax. After all, why should small businesses have any advantage?
We can tell you why! Sales tax codes vary not only state-to-state, but also from county to county and sometimes town to town. On top of that, the items that are taxed vary. For example, we sell clothing, which is not a taxable item in New Jersey, but is taxable in neighboring New York, though at different tax rates depending on where in NY you shop and live. Can you imagine the immense burden on small businesses like ours and many others?
We would need to hire an outside company just to manage tax collection and payment. That extra expense would mean we have less money to hire more staff or invest in our business. We would be happy to collect tax if it was simplified- why doesn’t our government consider that before placing the burden on the small businesses that support local economies? Shame on our elected officials for catering, yet again, to the voices of big business and the money they give to campaigns and lobbyists!
