NEW YORK, March 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sears, a leading integrated retailer focused on making shopping easier for its customers and Shop Your Way members, announced today the launch of Now + Here, a fast fashion shop available in Sears stores across the country, on Sears.com and shopyourway.com. The Now + Here shops offer a compelling new shop environment with monthly deliveries of the latest trends to keep members and customers on the pulse of fashion at affordable prices. The fully integrated retail experience extends online with access to exclusive content, including behind the scenes videos and fashion tips.
"Fast fashion for Sears means an accelerated timeline for trends at an affordable price. The new Now + Here shop provides an experience that transcends the store, leveraging our integrated retail capabilities to give our customers and Shop Your Way members a 360 degree fashion experience," said Sheila Field, chief marketing officer, Sears Apparel.
To celebrate the launch of Now + Here, Sears will host a first of its kind virtual event, followed by a live fashion chat with celebrity Brooke Burke-Charvet at searsspringfashion.com on April 14 at 9 pm EDT.

"Today's fashionista lives a digital lifestyle that is part of everything she does, including how she shops," said Field. "Launching the Now + Here shop with a virtual fashion event not only gives her a front row seat to the launch, it takes her inside to experience and purchase the product in a whole new way.
