Epicurious provides information about food and cookery. The Epicurious Recipes & Shopping List app is among the most popular on the App Store in both the Food & Drink, and Lifestyle categories. Today's announcement didn't indicate which stores with Swirl beacons would be sending notifications to Epicurious app users. However, it probably isn't too hard to figure this out. Last month, Swirl beacons began greeting customers at Hudson’s Bay and Lord & Taylor stores across Canada and the United States. Its other retail customers include Alex and Ani, Timberland, and Kenneth Cole. The Epicurious Recipes & Shopping List app is available to download by following this link.
Starting this week, the in-store digital experiences will be available to users of the Epicurious iPhone app who have opted-in to receiving local content. These in-store experiences are being piloted in select markets, where Epicurious mobile app users will receive culinary and lifestyle content and offers while they shop… Lifestyle brands like Epicurious have the ability to leverage Swirl’s growing network of retail partners to extend their brand experiences with highly relevant content, services and offers that are delivered seamlessly to consumers where and when it is most valuable.
