Domino’s launches new iPad ordering app
Ann Arbor, Mich. – Domino’s Pizza is releasing its ordering app for iPad. Domino’s new app will offer users access to the full national menu, coupon search and location-based store locator, like in its current iPhone, Android, Windows Phone 8 and Kindle Fire ordering apps.
The app will also allow direct access to track an order using Domino’s Tracker, the company’s digital order tracker, and Pizza Profiles, which allows customers the ability to save information and reorder in as little as five clicks, or about 30 seconds.
"We couldn’t be more thrilled about bringing our Domino’s Pizza ordering app to iPad," said Russell Weiner, Domino’s Pizza chief marketing officer. "This new app enhances our commitment of offering convenience to our customers wherever they are – and it looks so good, customers will get hungrier just looking at it."

GameStop to close 120-130 stores; open 300-400 tech stores under new banners
Grapevine, Texas — GameStop Corp. will close 120-130 of its 6,457 stores worldwide in 2014 and add 300 to 400 new tech stores under three different banners: Spring Mobile, Cricket and Simply Mac. The closures and openings are part of the company’s new “GameStop3.0” repositioning. The new strategy emphasizes mobile-gaming.
“The opportunities that have presented themselves we see as unique,” said GameStop CEO Paul Raines during an investor meeting last week.
In the current fiscal year, GameStop expects to open between 200 and 250 Spring Mobile stores. Simply Mac will see another 20-25 stores added in markets underserved by Apple’s own retail chain. GameStop is expecting to add another 100 to 150 Cricket locations to the 31 it was running at the end of its last fiscal year.
Apple and AT&T will contribute to the cost of opening the new stores. GameStop thinks each of its three new technology brands can individually become a $1 billion business.
