Bentonville, Ark. (July 30, 2009) – I.O. Metro Furniture today launched its new website, www.io-metro.com, which features a tool to create a products wish list and the new Hello Metro blog.
Customers can browse I.O. Metro’s entire collection of furniture, art, lighting and home accessories, choosing items to put on their
“Wish List.” This list details pricing and can be printed and taken to an I.O. Metro store for easy shopping. The updated website also features a new blog, “Hello Metro,” which features posts on home decorating tips from the retailer’s in-house designers and new
products and furniture lines.
“We’ve created a new site where people will want to come, cruise around and come back for more,” said Jay Howard, chief executive officer of I.O. Metro. “Viewers can check out new arrivals, add items to their wish list, join our Facebook fan club, view our Twitter feed or read our daily blog!”
Visitors can also find information about I.O. Metro’s Custom Metro line and free design service and sign up to receive email
notification on new arrivals and special offers.
In addition to updating the overall appearance, the site makes it easy for visitors to connect to I.O. Metro via its social networks,
such as Facebook, Twitter and Flickr. The retailer plans to launch the e-commerce arm of its site in Fall 2009. This will allow customers from anywhere in the world to purchase I.O. Metro’s unique furniture pieces and accessories.
