The brand with 60 stores across the country will launch a new Lovesac.com on the Blueport Platform in Q2 of 2017.
“Blueport’s ecommerce platform is optimized for big-ticket, omnichannel furniture out of the box. Leveraging that infrastructure, we can focus our efforts on building a bespoke Lovesac.com that takes our brand, our unique furniture and our stores to the next level.”
