AdoptAShelter.com Adds PETCO, Lillian Vernon, eHarmony And 20 More Merchants To Mall
Cyber Monday 2011 was a lucrative day for online retailers, as sales reached $1.25 billion, up from $1.03 billion last year. Overall 10 million people shopped online, an 11% increase, and they spent 9% more than in 2010. The term “Cyber Monday” was coined in 2005 to offer Web sales on the Monday following Thanksgiving.
Having just launched in late August, AdoptAShelter.com has seen traffic to its site double every month, culminating with many animal lovers shopping at its 400 + top-name online stores over the Black Friday to Cyber Monday period. “More and more people are shopping online and that trend is expected to continue for years to come”, says Chris Ruben, founder and CEO. “We are very busy reminding animal lovers to do all of their online shopping through AdoptAShelter.com. They can buy just about anything and earn a donation for the animal shelter or rescue organization of their choice. All without registering, logging in or remembering a password.

AdoptAShelter.com is pleased to announce that it has added PETCO, Lilian Vernon, eHarmony and twenty more online merchants to it's shopping mall. “We welcome our new merchants as they provide additional choices for our user-base”, says Ruben. “We will continue to add merchants of all kinds to better meet the needs of animal lovers who want to shop online and donate a portion of every purchase to their favorite animal welfare organizations.”
