Saying Farewell to an Old Website/Goodbye to our Old Digs!

Saying Farewell to an Old Website/Goodbye to our Old Digs!

Hello friends!

Hey there. It's been a hot minute since I've blogged on Danna Banana's blogging platform. Let's begin by saying Happy Autumnal Equinox on this first day of fall!

I've been reminiscing about when Danna Bananas' present but old site was launched. It was 2008 when we were told by our Web Developer that there is a new open source ecommerce platform called Magento. We took his advice and migrated to this new platform. It was a great solution for our small business.

"Magento can create engaging, shoppable experiences with Adobe Commerce. See how our next-generation technology, global partner ecosystem, and extensions marketplace can breathe life into your business."

As Magento offered so many new features, we were glad we chose this ecommerce platform. It helped us bring Danna Bananas to the surface and grow. For these qualities and more, we loved you as we had some great times together.

It was fifteen years ago today that the Danna Bananas journey began!  Before we transition into our new chapter, just want to say So Long, it's been a blast Magento and thanks for your shelter!

Let's go down memory lane with our very first blog entry.

Introducing...Danna Bananas' Brand New Website!

Wowza ready for some Big News! We are so excited to officially announce the launch of our new website - dannabananas.com! It has the same name but different look...introducing the new Danna Bananas 2021!

🎈🎉But first let's give a round of a applause to our first love. Danna Bananas 2008 is unforgettable. Yes, we’re moving onto pastures new but we know we wouldn’t be who we are today without you. We will think of you from time to time, and we’ll smile to ourselves and remember the good old days.

A website should be updated to take advantage of changing technology and design best practices. You gave us a solid and lucky thirteen years. For that, we are forever grateful for all the Magento Developers who kept it running and secure.

With the launch of our visually appealing website, we’d like to say goodbye to Danna Bananas' Magento version...so farewell and thank you for your years of service. We will miss you!

Over the past 14 months, we have been building a new website with copious amounts of updated features and a modern innovative design. 

Danna Bananas' user-friendly website is packed with today's online shopping features(responsive website, customer reviews, free shipping, safe and secure online payment system).

Woo hoo we are ecstatic it is finally completed and happening despite the delays!

During this transition, there may be temporary interruptions to our site, and we appreciate your patience. ⁠

Head on over to our new and improved website at https://dannabananas.com/ and have a look around as we created this site to showcase our fun and unique gifts!⁠
