of individual stores while leveraging their massive merchandising, sales and marketing capabilities. With the new website,
each store benefits from localized e–commerce while harnessing the power of the Carpet One Floor & Home brand.
"Blueport Commerce's unmatched experience with considered commerce has enabled us to offer our customers a seamless online
shopping experience," said Dean Marcarelli, chief marketing officer for CCA Global Partners, parent company of Carpet One
Floor & Home.
"By partnering with Blueport, we can provide our customers with localized e–commerce that connects customers with
their local stores, so they can benefit from specific services and promotions as part of their online purchase process."
Developing an effective e–commerce offering can be challenging for retailers with business models like Carpet One
Floor & Home – where the brand, product offerings and distribution are controlled locally by independent dealers.
The Carpet One Floor & Home sites reflect each store's unique offering, generating leads as well as sample,
do–it–yourself, and installed flooring orders fulfilled by these local dealers.
