BY Dan Berthiaume

West Bridgewater, Mass. — Shaw’s plans to close six stores operating under its namesake banner by Aug. 3. The locations targeted for shuttering include four stores in the Massachusetts towns of Fall River, Fairhaven, Stoughton, and Taunton and two stores in the Rhode Island towns of Westerly and Woonsocket.

“The stores identified have not been profitable for quite some time, and despite the best efforts of the company and our associates, we have not been able to reposition them to better compete in the marketplace and don’t anticipate being able to change this trend,” stated a Shaw’s press release.

Shaw’s operates 155 Shaw’s stores and 14 Star Market stores in New England.

Glasses.com releases 3D app

BY Dan Berthiaume

Draper, Utah — Online eyewear retailer Glasses.com is releasing a 3D app for the iPad platform that allows customers to virtually try on glasses using a 180-degree 3D representation of their face. Proprietary facial modeling technology allows users to reproduce their face on an iPad screen and reposition glasses, as well as compare different glasses in a side-by-side view. A built-in “share” feature lets customers send virtual views to family and friends and receive tallied votes on their opinions.

The app is available for free download in the iTunes store and Glasses.com plans future releases on other mobile platforms and also for the web.

"Up until now, augmented reality was something of a parlor trick," said Jonathan Coon, CEO of Glasses.com. "It was fun but just not accurate or easy enough to be useful. Our hope is that the glasses.com app will be to augmented-reality shopping what ‘Toy Story’ was for computer-generated animated films, it’s just the beginning."
