ShopNow helps market a retailer’s expanded and late night holiday hours
San Carlos, CA (PRWEB) December 12, 2011
With twelve days to Christmas to find the perfect gift, ShopNow LLC today announced availability of holiday shopping hours in its free iPhone® app for local store information -- ShopNow®. With the inclusion of holiday hours, ShopNow is unique among local directories or shopping apps in its ability to aggregate and present timely and real-time information about which stores nearby are open early or late for holiday shopping.
"Stores such as Toys"R"Us, Best Buy, and Kohl's are already featuring late-night shopping hours, and the majority of department stores and large Malls move to expanded hours the week of December 15th -- if they haven't already," said Mike Sawyer, publisher of ShopNow. "Retailers are making it convenient for those with packed and busy schedules to shop locally to get what they need -- we're adding to that convenience with our free iPhone app ShopNow that helps market a retailer’s expanded and late night holiday hours."
ShopNow is an iPhone app focused on having the most up to date listings of store locations and store hours. Desired stores can be found via traditional search or one-click key categories. Results are shown with store hours and a visual highlight of all local stores open at that moment, including special holiday or sale hours for stores that offer them. A new Twitter view of store listings makes it easy to browse the most recent tweets and promotions of stores nearby.
ShopNow publishes a curated directory of local retailers spanning over 500,000 U.S. chain and independent stores in more than 22,000 US cities and 1,100 malls and shopping centers. Store listings and hours are gathered directly from retailers, as well as through community-sourcing from mobile ShopNow app users.
The ShopNow iPhone app is free and available now via the App Store.
