CHANDLER, Ariz., Nov. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for the holiday season, Ross-Simons, the largest value-priced retailer of luxury merchandise, has brought their successful catalog business to the Internet with the help of Evergreen Internet, the world's leading provider of Internet commerce Web sites. In addition to their chain of retail stores and print catalogs, Ross-Simons now offers a selection of fine jewelry, tableware and collectibles directly from their new Web site ( This online catalog features easy browsing through categories of merchandise, and with the secure ordering capabilities provided by Evergreen, customers can place orders directly from the Web site with ease and confidence. In addition to the selection of products currently available, future plans for the Web site include offering additional categories and a full spectrum of Ross-Simons fine merchandise.

The Ross-Simons Web site features the ability to browse and choose from a variety of luxury merchandise, which will include crystal, sterling, china, fine jewelry and collectibles from brand name manufacturers. The site also features its own Bridal Registry, which allows online ordering of gifts from Ross-Simons' Bridal Registry program and the ability to purchase gifts from the registry directly from the Web site. With leading edge Web commerce technology, Ross-Simons' existing Bridal Registry database is seamlessly integrated with the new Web site. Ross-Simons also plans to add online gift registration to the Bridal Registry in the near future.

In addition to their specific Bridal Registry, Ross-Simons is also a charter participant in Evergreen Internet's new All-The-Best! Gift Registry, which provides gift registration on the Internet and ordering from multiple online retailers for anniversaries, weddings, engagements, bridal and baby showers, and more.

A key component of the Ross-Simons online catalog is the Internet commerce capability. With their proprietary CyberCat application, Evergreen provides state-of-the-art secure transaction capabilities that are accessible through nearly all Internet browsers. The system features a digital keypad which randomly encrypts financial data and removes it from the Internet to complete the order off-line, assuring secure tracking and protection of information. It also offers integrated database capabilities between a company's Web site and their existing databases, for powerful data management, tracking and reporting. These features and more provide Ross-Simons with the ability to offer their customers the convenience of online shopping and the safety of secure transaction processing.

"We chose Evergreen Internet to implement the online commerce capabilities of our Web site because of their expertise in secure online transactions and their ability to integrate the online ordering with our existing databases and systems," stated Peter Howard, vice president of marketing for Ross-Simons. "Our new Web site now offers our customers a new and powerful resource that is available 24 hours a day."
