Shipping Cut-Offs and the Anxiety Around Apparel Gift-Giving No Longer Barriers For Shoppers Trying to Buy for Others
Canton, MA (PRWEB) - Destination XL Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:DXLG), the leading retailer of men’s XL apparel, announced today that it has partnered with Loop Commerce to launch GiftNow, the leading digital gifting service in time for last-minute shoppers this holiday season. Through the partnership, DXL has integrated Loop Commerce’s GiftNow platform and service, enabling its shoppers to buy and digitally deliver any product from their website as a thoughtful gift just in time for last-minute holiday gift-giving.
“Clothing is one of the most requested gift ideas, and we wanted to make the selection process easier for gift givers,” said Sahal Laher, Chief Digital & Information Officer at DXL. “GiftNow eliminates the need for the gift giver to choose the perfect size and color. Plus, with instant digital delivery, shoppers can buy from our site right up until the day of the holiday – guaranteeing it will be delivered on time. Digitally gifting products is very different and more personalized than giving a gift card, and we wanted to provide the best possible experience for our shoppers. This is why we’ve partnered with the pioneer and proven leader of the category, Loop Commerce. With the holidays upon us, it’s the perfect option for last-minute gift-giving, completely eliminating shipping cut-off dates and making it possible to give a thoughtful gift anytime, even on December 25th and afterwards for those belated holiday gifts.”
Through the partnership, DXL will enable those shopping for others to easily and instantly send any product digitally by using “GiftNow” on the destinationXL.com site’s product pages. Recipients receive their gift notification through email, text, social channels, or a printout. They are presented with the gift, which they can personalize to suit their preference in size, style, or color; they even have the option of exchanging it before having it shipped to the address of their choice.
DXL joins a network of world-class retailers and brands such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Banana Republic, Athleta, Michael Kors, Coach, Vera Bradley, and others that have already embraced Loop’s innovative digital gifting solution. GiftNow offers considerable value with collective consumer education, deep insights and best practices that significantly support the success and growth of their gifting strategy. They can now capture new sales by tapping into the emerging Gift-Commerce category, which is estimated to represent $200-300 billion in sales annually.
“We are excited about the opportunity for DXL to make their assortment more easily gifted for the holidays and everyday life events,” said Roy Erez, CEO and Co-Founder of Loop Commerce. “In an era of digital experiences and instant gratification, GiftNow will help DXL to drive incremental sales by giving customers an innovative way to buy thoughtful, yet stress-free gifts, and to attract new customers who are looking for a better way to shop for the man who’s hard to buy apparel for.”
