We are constantly looking for ways to build eCampus.com as the preferred destination for today’s student, and this move toward licensed collegiate apparel puts us firmly top of mind.
Lexington, KY (PRWEB) November 09, 2011
Best known for its easy, fast, and cheap way for students to rent, buy, and sell textbooks, eCampus.com has added a new chapter to its offerings by introducing upscale collegiate apparel to its inventory, including licensed items for more than 430 different colleges and a recently-released line of women’s apparel called “Touch by Alyssa Milano.”
Priding itself on its convenience and service, the site (http://www.ecampus.com ) will act as a virtual full service bookstore for students, as well as for friends and family looking to rock a loved one’s college gear proudly. Now when students click “add to cart” on their textbook order, they can throw in a new college sweatshirt for that week’s tailgate as well.
To kick-off fan excitement, eCampus will be hosting a weekly “Shore of Jerseys” giveaway on their Facebook page where lucky winners will receive a NCAA football jersey. The contest will launch on November 10 and run thru the first week of January for the BCS National Championship game.
“We are very excited for the official launch of collegiate apparel on the site,” said Matt Montgomery, CEO of eCampus.com. “We are constantly looking for ways to build eCampus.com as the preferred destination for today’s student, and this move toward licensed collegiate apparel puts us firmly top-of-mind.”
The initial offerings will include more than 300 items for the University of Texas, over 470 items for the University of Alabama and over 600 items for the University of Michigan. A total of 431 major colleges and universities will be represented in all, spanning more than 67,000 diverse apparel items.
“We anticipate our top sellers to be the University of Texas apparel considering that Texas students make up about 10% of our site traffic,” Montgomery said. “We are happy to now provide long-time fans of our site with even more items they will love.”
eCampus.com will now carry popular brands such as Under Armour, Adidas, Comfy Feet, New Era, and more. Customers can easily shop by team name, gender, item type, or event category. Some of the larger inventory items include: jerseys - 606 of them at prices ranging from $21.99 to $199.99 for authentic game jerseys; sweatshirts - over 6,700 of them available for 395 teams ranging in price from $20.00 to $90.00; and t-shirts - over 7,700 available at prices ranging from $5.99 for a single shirt to $39.99 for multipacks.
The “Touch by Alyssa Milano” line was specifically designed to make it easier for women to look stylish while cheering on their favorite teams. eCampus will be offering items such as long-sleeve shirts, pants, t-shirts, sweaters and sweatshirts under this women-only line, and, more specifically, it will include the fan-favorite NCAA logo denim.
