Best Children’s Boutique
Pampered Tot – More than pampering even themselves, South Bay residents like to take care of their kids and voted Pampered Tot the best store to help them do it. Store owners originally opened the online store to “fill a void in the marketplace for online retailers with the service levels of a local boutique.” With a recently-opened Hermosa Beach location, the store now offers the best of both virtual and live shopping worlds.
Sure, Pampered Tot carries the latest and greatest in strollers, baby carriages, diaper bags, car seats, accessories, cribs, changing tables, rockers, sheets, blankets, decor and toys, with top brands including Baby Bjorn, California Baby, Burt’s Bees, The Peanut Shell.
But the store’s top priority is customer service and satisfaction. Employees are happy to help parents, whether first-time or not, figure out everything from what they do and don’t need to how to get their baby to sleep. Parents can even fill out an online form with questions and one of Pampered Tot’s experts will call back an answer within 10 minutes during normal business hours.
All items available for purchase on its website site are in stock. Orders are shipped out on the same day if ordered before noon and free shipping is included on all domestic orders over $100.
