It has been an honor that we have been asked to participate with MonsterCommerce and Google, to make the online shopping experience better for our customers. Having a relationship with MonsterCommerce and Google and having them ask us for ideas and feedback and being a part of that process, has been exciting—we’re all in favor of making shopping online easier for everyone involved.”
