WEBWIRE

Specialty work apparel retailer WorkingPerson.com was again named to Internet Retailer’s definitive ranking of America’s 500 largest e-retailers.

The Working Person’s Store’s CEO, Eric Deniger, attributed the continued success of WorkingPerson.com to its expanded product selection and compelling value proposition backed up by a well trained, knowledgeable support team. He also noted a favorable trend in repeat customers. “We work every day to deliver the best customer experience possible online and off to earn their business, and we appreciate their loyalty- serving well is what really got us here.” Deniger said.

“We’re proud to be recognized again as one of the 500 largest online retailers in America and we are working hard on new initiatives so we can earn a place on this list next year. New brands and product categories will be introduced this year and we’re working with our technology partner, AVID Commerce, to add exciting new site features and functions to keep improving the online experience,” Deniger added.

“The WorkingPerson.com site gets the majority of its traffic from organic search and converts visitors to buyers at better than average rates,” said Stephen Antisdel of AVID Commerce. “Based on our experience in other market segments, we believe the next generation WorkingPerson.com site will further enhance their online search engine visibility and drive their sales conversion,” Antisdel concluded.

WorkingPerson.com is the online division of Working Person’s Store, a leading multi-channel, work focused apparel and footwear retailer founded in Lakeville, Indiana in 1995.
