CANTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Destination XL Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: DXLG), the leading retailer of men’s XL apparel, today announced the launch of its first mobile app, created in alliance with mobile commerce leader, PredictSpring. Designed to assist both on-the-go and in-store shoppers, the app boasts visual appeal and ease of use.
“At DXL Men’s Apparel, we are a lifestyle destination – the one-stop shop for clothing and accessories catering to the many styles and occasions of our ‘guy’,” said Sahal Laher, Chief Digital Officer and CIO of Destination XL Group, Inc. “DXL stores have everything available under one roof to make guys look and feel great. Now, through PredictSpring’s mobile platform, we are able to deliver the products consumers want, when and where they want it, while also creating an enhanced in-store experience.”
Additional highlights and features of DXL’s new mobile app include:
