Glass is a software platform that promotes the discovery of clothing, accessories and shoes across the long tail of US retail stores. 97% of the approximately 300,000 fashion stores in the US are single location boutiques, and are too small to publish product data on e-commerce platforms. However, they do use social media actively to market their deals and inventory. We've built a product discovery layer on top of the social graph that gathers & categorizes product data from small boutiques and large national chains alike. This data is then distributed to consumers in a user friendly and location aware manner via our mobile app and website.
Consumers can use Glass to keep track of new arrivals at their favorite stores, or find new stores, products and deals around them. Glass makes money when consumers redeem offers or make purchases via our platform.
Glass is available as a mobile app for iPhone and on the web at www.shopglass.com
