BOSTON, MA, and PITTSBURGH, PA, May 1, 2013 - Brixy, a trade association uniting independent juvenile stores to promote and preserve the specialty channel, and SnapRetail, a technology company that provides an innovative online marketing and sales solution to help local store owners increase store traffic and grow sales, have partnered to provide SnapRetail's solution to Brixy members.
The two organizations joined forces because they share a common goal - to help independent retailers in the juvenile market thrive. Together they will be providing specialized email marketing and social media content and educational programs for children's store owners. In addition, Brixy members will receive special pricing and other exclusive benefits.
Brixy launched in January 2013 to provide a single unified organization of juvenile retailers. It has the full support of NINFRA, USABaby, JPMA and Baby News. All Baby and Child (ABC) provided initial funding for Brixy, which now has over 150 stores in their network.
SnapRetail was founded in early 2010 to help independent retailers complete with national chain stores by providing an affordable, easy-to-use solution for online marketing and sales. With thousands of customers throughout North America, SnapRetail is fast becoming the solution of choice for local retailers.
