Von Maur to expand e-commerce fulfillment center

BY Staff Writer

Davenport, Iowa — Department store retailer Von Maur said Thursday it has begun construction on an expansion of its e-commerce fulfillment center to support continued growth in its web presence.

Projected for completion in October 2012, the expansion will add an additional 73,000 sq. ft. to the company’s current 46,000-sq.-ft. center in Davenport, Iowa.

The expansion, said the retailer, reflects the company’s successful online business at vonmaur.com, which has seen triple-digit percentage sales increases every year since 2008. Having already outgrown its original 46,000-sq.-ft. facility built in 2010, the new 119,000-sq.-ft. center will further enable Von Maur to serve a nationwide online customer base and grow its presence beyond its established Midwestern roots.

"E-commerce will continue to be a key driver of growth, helping us further extend the one-of-a-kind Von Maur brand and offering to customers across the country," said Jim von Maur, president of Von Maur Department Store.

In addition to growing its online presence, Von Maur is expanding its national footprint with plans to add three new stores to its current 27 stores. A second Atlanta retail location is scheduled to open in fall 2012, and locations in Alabama and New York are scheduled to open in fall 2013.

CVS takes personalization to next level with new CVS.com site

BY Antoinette Alexander

Woonsocket, R.I. — CVS/pharmacy officially unveiled on Thursday a new personalized digital experience on CVS.com, which features extensive health information and resources in addition to customized deals and savings information.

“It is one step of many that is focused on creating the most personalized and accessible shopping experience. … After 14 years of ExtraCare’s track record, we are uniquely positioned to make sure that the logic and the thinking and the insights that we have really pay off for the customer, both in terms of their health objectives and their savings objectives,” Rob Price, senior VP and CMO for CVS/pharmacy, said.

One of the key highlights of the revamped site is the pharmacy page, which is designed for easy management of health information so shoppers can not only remember to refill and pick up prescriptions but also gather the information they need about what’s in their medicine cabinet. Visitors also have access to a Drug Information Center to check for drug interactions and identify pills by shape, color and imprint.

The new site also features a hub for ExtraCare members to help them manage their savings and deals. ExtraCare members can view their ExtraSavings and ExtraBucks Rewards and send ExtraBucks Rewards and select coupons directly to their card via the "Send to Card" digital savings option. In addition, shoppers can turn toward the new deals hub for even more exclusive offers including "Deal of the Day" flash sales.

As part of its digital commerce initiative, CVS has also developed the Endless Aisle, which features those items available only online or offers a deeper product assortment than what might be available in the store.

“We are going to be looking at a number of categories where we have the credibility and the trust from our customers to add to our assortment online, and there will be more to come on that in the coming months,” Price said.
