Catalog Spree adds brands to mobile shopping app

BY Dan Berthiaume

Los Altos, Calif. – Catalog Spree, which promotes itself as a “digital mall” providing online access to retail catalogs, has added several brands to its mobile shopping app. Retailers — including Forever 21, JC Penney, Kohl’s, Target, Toms Shoes, Torrid and Urban Outfitters — now have Catalog Spree “lookbooks” that provide online browsing of catalog-style product selections. Catalog Spree also has added a price watch feature that sends users automatic notifications when prices on desired goods drop to a certain point.

"Fashion retailers have long faced a challenge in delivering highly-engaging content to mobile devices, especially tablets," said Joaquin Ruiz, CEO of Catalog Spree. "The traditional utilitarian online shopping mentality of ‘search-find-buy’ does not offer the same enjoyment and satisfaction that teens and young women get when discovering new fashion, trends or inspiration through a very visual and lifestyle medium — such as a lookbook or a catalog. By creating exclusive lookbooks for these popular brands, and many more to come, Catalog Spree delivers that desired visual experience."

Lumber Liquidators formaldehyde claims investigated

BY Dan Berthiaume

Toano, Va. – Boston-based class action law firm Block & Leviton said it is investigating claims that Lumber Liquidators Holdings sold floors to consumers with illegal levels of formaldehyde. Independent testing conducted at two different IAS-certified laboratories has reportedly revealed formaldehyde levels as high 0.17 ppm, three-and-a-half times the government mandated maximum emission level, in Mayflower flooring.

The investigation seeks to determine if Lumber Liquidators sold products to consumers in violation of federal and state laws. Consumers who purchased Mayflower brand flooring or other Chinese-sourced flooring products at Lumber Liquidators can contact the firm.

Lumber Liquidators has not publicly commented on these claims or on Brock & Leviton’s investigation.
