Tile Shop opens third Boston-area store
Plymouth, Minn. – The Tile Shop is launching its third retail store in the Boston metropolitan area. The new 15,805-sq.-ft. store will be located in the Worcester suburb of Shrewsbury, Mass.
The new store will join The Tile Shop’s other Boston area stores in Natick and Avon, Mass.
“The Tile Shop and Shrewsbury are a great fit for each other,” said Carl Randazzo, senior VP of retail for The Tile Shop. “Our new store will offer a wide range of tile and stone products that will go well with the architectural styles of the homes located in and around Shrewsbury, many of which were built between the 1960s and the early 2000s, in keeping with the suburb’s population growth.”
Bulletin releases new dealfinder app
San Diego – Mobile messaging provider Bulletin has released DealSiftr, a mobile dealfinder app for iOS devices. With DealSiftr, users fill out a personal profile to tell the app exactly what they’re looking for, and then DealSiftr will serve up the most relevant daily deals straight to the user’s mobile device.
DealSiftr provides offers from Yelp, Restaurant.com, Amazon Local, and other location-based social networks. The app integrates with iPhone’s GPS to sift through mobile coupons and only present local offers that fit the users’ personal profile. DealSiftr is now available as a free download worldwide in the iTunes App Store.
"We built DealSiftr because we were getting frustrated with the huge crop of coupon apps that just mindlessly spam users with daily deals,” said Michael Messner, spokesperson for Bulletin.”I don’t want to have to wade through coupons for manicures and bumper repair when I’m looking for a coupon for Thai food."
