Brandsmart USA

Brandsmart USA - BrandsMart USA (www.BrandsMartUSA.com), one of the largest per-store-volume retailers in the United States, is now expanding its cross-border online shopping capability to customers in Latin America and the Caribbean. The service is made possible through a strategic partnership with PuntoMio (www.PuntoMio.com), the international shopping facilitator that gives non-U.S. residents a U.S. address which they can use to place online orders from U.S. retailers.

With this new service, consumers accessing www.BrandsMartUSA.com from Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Peru, Bahamas, Puerto Rico, and other countries are directed to the BrandsMart USA international website, through integration with PuntoMio. Customers will see products displayed in local currency and the purchase price will include transportation to their country, duties, taxes, and delivery within 5 to 8 days of purchase.

"We observe a large amount of Latin American and Caribbean shoppers in our stores every day. Relying on PuntoMio's expertise to reach out to those customers in their own country is a valuable advantage that we believe will translate into a significant increase in online sales for us," stated Bobby Johnson, Executive Vice-President of BrandsMart USA.
E-commerce in LATAM experienced a nearly 40% growth last year, and is expected to increase another 27% in 2010, according to AmericaEconomia Intelligence. "With this partnership we reach out to a growing market and further extend PuntoMio's visibility among potential customers throughout Latin America and the Caribbean," said Patricia Voigt, General Manager of PuntoMio. "We offered BrandsMart USA a truly integrated and easy to implement platform that eliminated their challenges with international e-Commerce. With our private delivery network we were able to offer them much lower and more accurate costs compared to other international checkout solutions that depend on the major express carriers."

www.PuntoMio.com provides complete information on how to subscribe to the service and obtain a U.S. address for general shopping from more than 1.7 million other online stores and catalogues in the U.S.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
