It's great to see Sears

It's great to see Sears Canada is opening a new store. Last week, we made a list of the top 5 Canadian retailers based on executives' background in growth and innovation. Sears was in our top 5 list. We are a Canadian egift card solution provider (name: VirtualNext) for Canadian retailers so you can imagine that we are interested in meeting retailer executives that believe in ecommerce, innovation, and growth.
