WebLinc would like to congratulate our clients Free People and LightsOnline.com on their inclusion in Internet Retailer’s 2011 Hot 100 list. This year’s list is a celebration of the best retail web sites featuring 100 outstanding retailers in eleven categories.
Free People currently has 40 stores and is carried in more than 1,000 boutiques and department stores nationwide. As the youngest sister of the Urban Outfitters family of brands, they are dedicated to staying on the cutting edge – both in terms of fashion and eCommerce. WebLinc has worked with Free People since 2004, providing them with the platform they needed for growth through eCommerce, their wholesale site, and most recently with mobile commerce.
Progressive Lighting is one of the largest and most trusted residential lighting chains in the south, with several showrooms in Georgia, and stores in North Carolina and Texas under the Lee Lighting name. Progressive Lighting’s eCommerce site LightsOnline.com relaunched on WebLinc Direct in April 2010, and since then, net sales have nearly doubled while the retailer’s conversion rates have increased a staggering 91%.
