Sears Canada Celebrates 60th Anniversary With 2012 Wish Book iPad App

Sears Canada, a multi-channel retailer with a network that includes 196 corporate stores and over 1,700 catalogue merchandise pick-up locations across the country, introduced Wish Book last year, Canada’s first shoppable iPad catalogue application. Today, the company is celebrating its 60th anniversary by announcing a permanent Sears iPad Catalogue App in the form of 2012 Wish Book (via CNW).

Sears promises to various content throughout any given year to the new iPad Catalogue App, offering its customers another exciting way to shop for all their Holiday gifts. The 2012 app features a smart, responsive pinch and zoom function, as well as a simple, intuitive navigation and browsing experience.

Calvin McDonald, President and CEO Sears Canada said:

“It’s fun, interactive and filled with convenient advantages that make Christmas shopping easier than ever and a lot of fun!  The app solidifies Sears as a leader when it comes to innovative approaches to Holiday season gift shopping, a place it has held in the hearts and minds of Canadians for six decades.”

Below are some great holiday gifting solutions included in the app:
