April 27, 2010 - General Release - Ruby Plaza Launches Into Success
Within the first four hours of its launch on April 19, 2010, Ruby Plaza had more than 300 shops requesting to open. With over 400 shops just a week later, Ruby Plaza is poised to become a leader among its counterparts.
"The initial response to Ruby Plaza has exceeded our exceptions," says Palmer Pekarek, Director of Communications and New Business Development at Ruby Lane. "It took us several years of research, design, programming, and testing to prepare Ruby Plaza for launch - it is great to see it off to such a great start."
Designed to offer a wider selection of items than does its sister site, Ruby Lane - Ruby Plaza offers a new way to shop. Now buyers can find a complete variety of home decor items ranging from furniture and accessories to lighting, bedding and window coverings - all in one category. Other categories include new and vintage fashion and accessories, and jewelry. The collectible category allows for both new and vintage collectibles. And, the handcrafted category welcomes bath and beauty products, candles, handcrafted dolls, needlecraft, woodworking, toys, and supplies, to name just a few. New items in all categories, as well as reproductions, and handcrafted items of all types are welcomed on the new site.
When asked how Ruby Plaza differs from its sister site Ruby Lane, Pekarek says, although there will be a small amount of crossover of items listed on both Ruby Lane and Ruby Plaza, the new site not only reach a different audience of both buyers and sellers, but offers newer items than on Ruby Lane.
With several value packages to choose from, including a Flagship promotion for new sellers to the Ruby Lane family of sites, still available, Ruby Plaza offers a user-friendly sophisticated platform that has Ruby Lane's 12 year history of excellence powering it.
"Buyers are able to wander through a great selection of unique items offered by hundreds of shops from around the world," says Pekarek. "Weather you are in the market to buy or sell, checkout www.rubyplaza.com."
