e-Commerce Program Components:
Online Exclusives (Curated Boxes)
How It Works
The Curated Box program is designed to provide brands with exposure through an online-only, discovery-oriented mix of products that represent a strong theme or story or solution. These boxes can be multi-brand and all categories are able to participate.
While partners have the option to include value-adds in the curated box, value-adds are not the offer "story" – the solution/theme of the box is the story.
