INDIANAPOLIS, April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Compendium, a software that makes it easy for marketers to publish content to blogs, landing pages, Facebook, and Twitter is excited to announce its newest partnership with The RoomPlace.
The RoomPlace Chicago opened in 1912. The brand has since expanded and owns 23 furniture stores throughout the greater Chicagoland area, Rockford, Illinois, Indianapolis, Mishawaka and Merrillville, Indiana. The RoomPlace offers a wide selection of professionally designed living room furniture, bedroom furniture, dining room furniture and kids furniture. The company also offers name brand lines such as Cindy Crawford furniture.
With emphasis on building the Ecommerce side of their furniture business, The RoomPlace made a strategic decision to hire an expert, Katie Kerrigan, to help increase revenue from this channel.
