Express Inc., a specialty apparel retailer targeting men and women age 20 to 30, is shipping products to more than 60 countries, and is mailing its first-ever catalog this month.
Express, No. 124 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide, is now shipping products ordered on its e-commerce site to countries across the Americas, Europe and Asia. Specific destinations include Argentina, Australia, France, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal and South Africa. All products available for global shipping are listed and sold in U.S. dollars at current domestic pricing. Express.com can be accessed via the web, through the Express mobile app and through a Shop Express tab on Facebook.
“International shipping allows Express to build upon our customer base and meet the requests we hear from our international customers who come to the U.S., shop in our stores and fall in love with our fashion,” says Lisa Gavales, chief marketing officer.
The company also just published and mailed its first-ever printed catalog. The Express Fall 2011 catalog is slated to arrive in shoppers’ mailboxes in late August and will include exclusive coupons and offers for online and in-store shopping. The catalog promotes Express’ fall men’s and women’s fashions, including casual clothes, premium denim, work wear and party attire.
“The September catalog articulates our fall fashion point of view to our customer with a level of richness we had yet to achieve in the past,” Gavales says. The 48-page catalog is being mailed to more than 8 million consumers, the company says.
On Sept. 5, consumers who “like” Express on Facebook can preview the Express fall 2011 TV commercial.
