Carson City, NV & Hong Kong, July 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 12 ReTech Corporation (OTCQB: RETC) announced today that its Lexi-Luu Dancewear fashion brand will be featured on the zulily.com e-commerce portal beginning on July 26th, 2018!
In addition, the Lexi-Luu brand began its email marketing and Facebook Ad campaigns for its children’s dancewear on July 16, 2018 which is driving immediate sales through its proprietary e-commerce site at www.lexiludancewear.com.
Lexi-Luu Dancewear is one of the micro brands that 12 ReTech acquired on May 1st, 2018 as part of its Emotion Apparel acquisition. Emotion Apparel’s production facilities were just migrated from Los Angeles California to Salt Lake City Utah, to take advantage of the lower Utah manufacturing costs for its “Made In The USA” apparel products. Recently, Utah was ranked third by CNBC in their ‘America’s Top States for Business 2018’ scorecard which is part of the reason for the move. Now that the move has been completed, the Company has re-launched its Lexi-Luu website and is carrying out wholesale and direct to consumer marketing on a level never before attempted by Lexi-Luu.

Hub Blanchett, Emotion Apparel’s CEO commented, “The support that I have received since joining the 12 ReTech family has been incredible! From marketing expertise to operating expertise, capital and much more. It has greatly increased the speed in which we were able to redeploy our factory and get back in front of consumers.”
Angelo Ponzetta, 12 ReTech’s CEO stated, “Lexi-Luu is a timeless brand of kid’s dancewear that is well recognized in the “dance world”. That our products are “Made In The USA” has been well received by families with young children. Hub’s team has worked closely with us and because of that, we are now ready, ahead of schedule to grow our sales and extend our brand awareness into worldwide consumer markets.”
Hub Blanchett continued, “We chose to re-launch Lexi-Luu now, as the seasonal busy Back to School is right around the corner for children’s dancewear. Because we have good brand recognition we have captured instant sales. Also, I’ve had a relationship with zulily.com for years and they were pleased to bring Lexi-Luu back to their e-commerce platform. By teaming up with zulily.com, we will be exposed to new potential Lexi-Luu customers due to the many shoppers that shop on zulily.com as well as the many new shoppers they routinely garner through their large advertising efforts. “Back to School” is one of their busiest times of the year and by being featured beginning on the 26th of July we will be right there at the beginning of the new sales season. In addition, we have already arranged for another featured promotion with zulily.com in August 2018 as well.”
Hub concluded, “With our reduced manufacturing costs in Utah I believe that we can compete on price and quality with almost any brand anywhere in the world. We are also exploring opportunities to sell our “Made In The USA” Lexi-Luu products in international markets.”
