BOULDER, Colo., Aug 1, 2008 - Wakefern Food Corp., the marketing and distribution arm for ShopRite, announced today that it has launched a new online imaging service provided by LifePics, offering ShopRite customers more print sizes, photo products, order fulfillment options, and customer service than ShopRite's previous online imaging service. ShopRite customers can now store, share, and order prints and hundreds of other photo products online and pick up their orders at their local ShopRite store or have the orders sent directly to their home.
"The new LifePics solution is a wonderful addition to our products and services offering," said Karen Meleta, spokeswoman for Wakefern. "The transition to LifePics has been seamless, and LifePics' expanded offering of fun and creative photo products is certain to appeal to our customers."
With the new LifePics service, ShopRite customers can order from hundreds of print sizes and customized photo products, including calendars (single and multi-page), photo books (several sizes and styles), greeting cards, mouse pads, sports memorabilia, kitchenware, clothing, enlargements, canvas prints, toys, and much more. The orders can be shipped to the consumer's home or picked up at the ShopRite location that is most convenient to the consumer. There are currently over 200 ShopRite locations throughout New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Delaware.
"ShopRite is one of the most reputable grocery businesses in the country, and we are thrilled to partner with them in their online imaging service," said Vahe Christianian, Vice President of Sales and Business Development at LifePics.
"Our solution facilitates order volume growth by establishing a personal connection between ShopRite stores and consumers, providing a wide range of products, and offering convenient order fulfillment options. ShopRite is dedicated to excellent customer service and product value, and with the LifePics online imaging solution in place, they are poised to become one of the leading photofinishers on the East coast."
