Sears.com Unveils Marketplace At Sears.com - Offering More Than 10 Million Items Online
New Marketplace at Sears.com makes shopping online easier than ever and
provides customers millions of products to shop from all in one convenient
HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Jan. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- To help
customers find what they need, when they need it, Sears.com formally
announces the launch of Marketplace at Sears.com, which the retailer has
been operating since July 2009. Marketplace at Sears.com opens the Sears
platform to third-party sellers, providing shoppers with even more shopping
choices. As a result, customers now have access to over 10 million products
"We are excited to provide our customers with the ability to shop
millions of new and exciting products," said Imran Jooma, senior vice
president for Online at Sears Holdings. "Customers can now easily find the
products they are seeking all in one convenient location from the comfort
of their own home computer."
From furniture to art, beauty to clothing, appliances to electronics,
sporting goods to shoes, customers can now get everything they need.
Sears.com is committed to providing an unparalleled online shopping
experience each and every day.
Sears.com recently launched additional browsing and shopping features
such as Quick View, Save for Later and Wish Lists coupled with a much
improved search platform that provides quick and easy access to the
millions of products. Customers also have the ability to distribute the
experience to social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, by
leveraging new share features.
Unique among multi-channel retailers' marketplaces, Sears.com has
created an open marketplace, in which not only new items have been added,
but multiple sellers of the same item are included on the site, regardless
of whether Sears sells a similar item. For instance, if a customer is
looking to find the best deal on a particular item, they can search for it
at Marketplace at Sears.com which will provide price quotes for that item
from a variety of sellers that may, or may not include Sears.
"We believe that by providing customers with more products to choose
from, along with the ability to compare offers for the same item across
other sellers, our customers will be better informed to make the best
decision for themselves," added Jooma. "We understand our customers are
time-starved and value-focused and we believe Marketplace at Sears.com
addresses those everyday concerns."
Sears is unveiling Marketplace at Sears.com on the heels of another new
program, ShopYourWay(TM) which provides customers with the ability to shop
how they want, when they want. From the new Online Layaway option that
allows customers to purchase items and pay for them over time to the
innovative Personal Shopper program, customer shopping options are endless
"Sears.com is so committed to providing an exceptional shopping
experience that we will personally help you find the exact product you are
looking for," said Jooma. "Simply send in your request to our personal
shopper via email or chat or our new mobile app, and we will do the rest of
the work for you."
