Avenue, a premier plus size brand in the portfolio of Redcats USA, and one of the world’s top online retailers, is pleased to announce the recent launch of its iPhone application, which provides fashionable shoppers with easy mobile access to a streamlined version of Avenue.com, our convenient and style-savvy plus size clothing website.
To extend its reach beyond the brand's recent Smart Phone application debut, Avenue realized that the iPhone was yet another state-of-the-art communications opportunity to better serve its loyal customers.

They can also browse new arrivals, search for specific items, take advantage of Avenue’s great promotions and deals, make purchases with just a few clicks, and find the closest Avenue retail store within a matter of seconds.
