PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ShopRunner, which brings together a network of retailers to deliver powerful shopping services, today announced that it has added a number of new retail partners to its growing ecosystem, including Brooks Brothers, MacMall and Claire's. Apart from being popular consumer destinations, these retailers provide greater consumer choice in the two largest online shopping categories – apparel and accessories, and consumer electronics.
In the apparel category, the iconic American brand Brooks Brothers will launch after the new year and will join ShopRunner's already robust offerings including American Eagle Outfitters, Lord and Taylor, Timberland, and Calvin Klein, among others.
ShopRunner also continues to launch new partners in the consumer electronics category. MacMall, the leading direct reseller of Apple products, joins other top electronics retailers NewEgg and RadioShack. The launch of popular jewelry and accessories store Claire's along with other retailers, highlights ShopRunner's commitment to growth across the entire retail spectrum, with recent additions like Franklin Covey, ReadingGlasses.com, Fathead and more. Other top brands already in the network include Toys"R"Us, GNC, Sports Authority and PetSmart.

In advance of the holiday season, we are excited to be able to offer these new retailers as a part of our growing network," said Scott Thompson, CEO, ShopRunner. "ShopRunner remains committed to providing value not only to our retail partners but also to our members.
