Pier 1 Imports is the original global importer of decorative home furnishings and gifts. Its merchandise is displayed in more than 1,000 Pier 1 Imports stores across the U.S. and Canada in a unique, visually appealing setting. The new Pier 1 Imports digital commerce sites convey the same brand experience found in its stores. Products are displayed in a way that maintains the company’s renowned “treasure hunt” feel, where customers can find long-time favorites, as well as something new with every visit.

“Our goal at Pier 1 Imports is to provide our customers with the best shopping experience possible, and this includes making it easy for them to find the Pier 1 Imports products they love, no matter where or how they shop,” said Laura Coffey, Senior Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Planning for Pier 1 Imports. “With Demandware, we have an omni-channel digital commerce platform that will allow us to continue to delight and inspire our customers across all channels and devices and provide a consistent brand experience.”

Pier 1 Imports’ current omni-channel operations include several Demandware-powered cross-channel shopping experiences, such as:

  • Ecommerce Site-to-Store – Consumers purchase products online and pick them up at the U.S. Pier 1 Imports store of their choice without incurring shipping charges.
  • Ecommerce Direct Shipping – Consumers purchase products online, have them shipped directly to their location of choice within the continental U.S., and can return online purchases to any Pier 1 Imports store.
  • Endless Aisle – While shopping in a Pier 1 Imports store, consumers can browse and purchase merchandise from the company’s broader selection available online, enhancing the customer’s overall shopping experience.

“From the outset of our relationship, Pier 1 Imports stressed that omni-channel operations and time-to-market are critical to its growth strategy,” said Jamus Driscoll, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Demandware. “The flexible, scalable, omni-channel capabilities included in Demandware Commerce make it the perfect fit for Pier 1 Imports. We’re delighted to add them to our client roster and look forward to working with them to further turn their vision into reality.”
