ONLINE CULTURAL COMMERCE, LLC, ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF NEW MUSEUM STORE WEBSITE, MUSEUMSHOPPERS.COM
12/10/2011

In this challenging economic environment, MuseumShoppers.com offers museums & specialty vendors another distribution channel and nationwide exposure to their artistic and cultural offerings. Participating museums and galleries receive links to their websites so visitors can easily access exhibition and membership information, and MuseumShoppers.com offers online consumers a stunning array of artist-inspired, unique gifts at great prices.

Online PR News – 10-December-2011 – – New York, NY, December 7, 2011. Online Cultural Commerce, LLC was created to support museums and galleries across the United States, the great majority of which rely on individual contributions to enrich their communities through exhibitions, education and outreach. Many of these art and cultural institutions create and/or market stunning examples of the artists’ works and cultures they represent, but are in no position to market these products to the larger and more diverse populations outside their immediate communities, but available on the Internet. MuseumShoppers.com seeks to provide just such a marketplace alternative, and in so doing, hopefully create new visitors to, and supporters of, these essential cultural venues and the art and culture they showcase.

Mr. Chris Gioia, Founder of Online Cultural Commerce, LLC, stated: “I hope that by exposing online visitors to the exquisite and challenging artistic expression on display at museums and galleries around the country, that these same visitors will find a way to support these institutions not only through purchases on MuseumShoppers.com, but also in their own towns and cities, and by including visits to these venues when planning their business and holiday travels.”

Toward this end, in addition to providing them income from the sale of their museum store offerings, MuseumShoppers.com provides participating museums and galleries with an onsite description and link to each museum’s website, so that visitors can explore current exhibitions, membership opportunities, and get visitor’s information to the museums themselves.

Mr. Gioia stated further: “I anticipate that many arts institutions and the vendors that develop art inspired products will find it beneficial to be a part of MuseumShoppers.com, and all interested parties are invited to make contact, and discover the ways in which this ecommerce platform can assist both their retail and greater outreach efforts.”
