The SafeToSleep system can also track total sleep time and generate sleep quality reports, providing parents with new information that can help them better understand and care for the wellness of their babies.
“This product is designed for all babies and newborns. With a SafeToSleep monitor, parents can monitor every single breath of their sleeping babies with hospital accuracy and be instantly notified if their baby needs them,” said Dr. Ryan Santangelo, SafeToSleep Co-Founder.

With a SafeToSleep monitor, parents now have a monitor that can not only watch their baby’s breathing, but can but also tell them how long their baby has slept and how well their baby has slept. Our mission is to not only protect the wellness of those sleeping babies, but to also bring some well-deserved peace of mind to the moms and dads responsible for their safety and care.”

MONTGOMERY, Ala., Jan. 17, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — After over 15 years in business, Kudzu Blossom Quilt Shop, Montgomery’s premier quilting supply and fabric store, is closing its doors forever. A huge “Quitting Business Sale” will begin immediately to liquidate every single item of merchandise, fixture and equipment in the store; to include fabrics, sundries, notions, supplies, books, patterns and more. Featuring famous name brands such as: Moda, Timeless Treasures, Michael Miller, Robert Kaufman and many more.
Located at 51 N.

“This sale is initiated only after careful consideration, and is our way of thanking our dear loyal friends for their business and friendship. We look forward to seeing all our friends during this retirement sale over the next few weeks and take advantage of incredible deals,” said Jarrett.

HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa., Jan. 4, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Multi-Flow Industries, a fountain-beverage manufacturer and distributor for over 75 years, recently introduced one of its best-selling brands – Re-Fuel™ – in a 16 ounce can. This product launch represents the premier introduction of a ready-to-drink beverage from the company that helped to revolutionize energy drinks available for nightclubs and bars in a bag-in-box package.
Acquired by CMS Private Equity in 2008, Multi-Flow has been producing Re-Fuel Energy Drink in bag-in-box (fountain-dispensed) for nearly a decade.
Mark Stephens, CEO, says that “Our Re-Fuel brand has been a value-added God-send to Nightclubs and Bars throughout the country. Our newest product launch, Re-Fuel 16 ounce cans, answers our customers’ requests. This represents our first offering that is ready-to-drink. We’re also anticipating many new customer opportunities in this package.”
Those opportunities refer to convenience store cold vaults, club stores, and other venues that don’t require a fountain-dispenser in order to serve.
Brett Rosenbloom, Director of Wholesale at Multi-Flow, said that “The pre-sales on Re-Fuel 16 ounce cans have been unbelievable. Our customers are looking for a great-tasting energy drink at an affordable cost, and that’s what we’re offering. It’s a win-win for everyone: our customers, and their consumers.”
Multi-Flow Industries, based in Huntingdon Valley, Pa., produces branded and private label concentrated Iced Teas, Juices, Carbonated Soft Drinks, Energy Drinks and Fortified Functional Water in Bag-in-the-Box packages. In addition to the recent “Excellent” rating from Silliker, Multi-Flow Industries has been an OSHA VPP Star Site since 2005.
Nearly half of Multi-Flow Industries’ revenue is derived from private label partnerships with convenience store chains, foodservice operators, and branded bottle and can manufacturers. The balance of Multi-Flow Industries’ revenue is generated from route delivery sales out of their 12 warehouses along the East Coast. The company was established in 1937 by U.S. Navy Veteran Sam Gottlieb.

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich., Nov. 27, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The busiest buying season of the year is here and businesses are seeking ways to cash in. Dynamic Media can help. It offers targeted music for business, music on hold, restaurant music, office music and on-hold messaging.
“This is one of the best times of years to implement music for business,” Ryan Santangelo, president, says. “Music influences behavior and affects mood and allows retailers and restaurant managers to set the most appropriate environment for its customers. Happy customers buy and come back for more.”
In addition to music for business and restaurant music, on-hold messaging and office music are also powerful tools. For example, 60 percent of all callers will be placed on hold and it’s important to make the best use of that time.
On-hold messaging provides callers with customized on-hold messages that are designed to give specific information about the business’ products, services and current promotions. This on-hold messaging service creates sales opportunities, reduces callers perceived wait time, and more.
Sirius Radio for business is another ideal way to entertain and engage customers. This licensed in-store music service provides 69 commercial-free channels made available to nearly all American businesses located in the United States. This service can also be used for music on hold.
“Currently, we are the nation’s largest provider of Sirius music for business,” Santangelo says. “Sirius music for business provides the most up-to-date, dynamic background music programming that satellite radio has to offer. It allows businesses to give customers the same Sirius programming that they may already enjoy in their cars or homes while establishing a mutual connection the moment they walk through the door.”
The fact is that a happy environment drives bigger sales. And which tool is used all depends on the business’ specific needs. If a business wants to promote and reinforce its brand while shoppers are making purchasing decisions, in-store messaging may be the way to go. If a restaurant wants customers to linger at the bar, restaurant music may be the answer.
“What all services have in common is that they all work to maximize time with customers to increase a business’ bottom line,” Santangelo says.
About Dynamic Media:
In business for more than 10 years, Dynamic Media is the nation’s leader in music for business, music on hold, in-store messaging, and on-hold messaging. Its award-winning service has led to 20,000 plus businesses that have already signed up.

The Quail & Olive Hosts Grand Opening – New olive oil tasting room in the Carmel Valley Village specializes in California products
CARMEL VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 8, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The Quail & Olive will host a grand opening event from 2 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 13 at 3 Pilot Road, Carmel Valley, CA 93924. The event will feature olive oil and balsamic vinegar tastings, skin health product demonstrations and local a capella act, The Valley Boys. Gourmet food catered by Paradise Catering and local wines as well as non-alcoholic beverages will be served. This is a no-cost celebration open to the community.
The Quail & Olive is owned by Stephen Brabeck, M.D., local cardiologist and resident. As a noninvasive cardiologist, he promotes healthy lifestyles to prevent cardiovascular disease. “I have long appreciated the unique vascular protective properties of quality extra virgin olive oils,” he said. “The Quail & Olive is a result of my love of food and the role it can play in our health. Eat right, be healthy, live well and enjoy life is our mission.”
The team includes Deb Monnastes, who manages the daily operations of the tasting room as well as designer and merchandiser, Agnieska (Aga) Simpson whose credits also include Anthropologie, Carmel and Stonecreek Kitchens in Monterey.
Visitors at the tasting room may select from 15 varieties of California extra virgin olive oil and ten varieties of balsamic vinegar. Additionally, The Quail & Olive also features health-conscious skin cosmetics, including olive oil and shea butter based skin preparations, bottled olive goods (olives and tapenades), dry pastas and spices. There will also be a section of books available relating to olive oil, cooking with olive oil, and healthy eating.
“Olive oil and wine are gifts from the Mediterranean,” Dr. Brabeck said. “But olive oil, unlike wine, does not improve with age. Our extra virgin olive oils are sourced from reputable California growers and mills that ensure an optimal origin to market time.”
The Quail & Olive team personally monitors grove-to-mill-to market quality. Dr. Brabeck’s use of air-tight fusti, topped off at regular intervals with inert nitrogen gas, minimizes the effects of light and oxygen degradation of the oils.
The tasting room is now open Thursday through Monday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. 831-659-4288; 855-255-OILS (toll free); http://www.quailandolive.com/ .

CLIVE, Iowa, Sept. 25, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Scale Faster of Des Moines, Iowa has reinvented the customer experience in one of the most draining issues for business owners – I.T. With the launch of its new retail studio at 2035 100th St. in Clive, Scale Faster has created an environment where customers can get comfortable, ask questions, and learn how to shed the pain of I.T. forever.
The Scale Faster concept was developed from a deep desire to create a customer experience uncluttered by confusing technical jargon and a tired sales process. By designing a complete solution “from the ground to the cloud,” the Scale Faster team’s prime directive is to listen.
“We’re in the business of pain relief and the psychological well being of business owners,” said Doug Mitchell, CEO of Scale Faster. “In our target sector of customers from 1 to 100 employees, owners want to focus on value creation and growing their businesses and could care less about networks, storage, and backups. We give owners a way to never think about I.T. again.”
The retail space is designed with exploration and visual learning in mind. White boards line the walls and a 6 foot x 3 foot, high-topped table with butcher paper ensure plenty of surfaces to visualize a company’s present and its future without the burden of I.T.
To help execute on the “Scale Faster Experience,” Mitchell assembled a team led by Michael C. Wagner, CEO of White Rabbit Group. Wagner is a nationally known speaker and consultant on creating amazing customer experience. “The customer experience begins with empathy,” said Wagner. “Technology companies tend to see every customer as a nail since they have the coolest hammer. The reality is that business owners don’t care about coolness. They want to grow with less hassle and that’s what the Scale Faster experience is all about.”
Scale Faster can take care of customer owned equipment and networks or completely transition a business into the cloud – delivering applications and providing desktop access across any device and any location. The company’s Des Moines based data center currently serves customers throughout Iowa and the Midwest.
About Scale Faster:
Scale Faster and the Scale Faster Studio is a service of pcCentral founded in 2004 as a Managed I.T. Services provider delivering application, email, and data hosting, disaster recovery, mobility, and backup solutions. Scale Faster invites the community to leverage its studio to solve their own creative, design, or business challenges.

From Hangovers to Head Lice: What Do Head Lice and Hangovers Have in Common? CT-based Healthcare Entrepreneur George Coleman
BRIDGEPORT, Conn., July 2, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — In the early 1980′s George Coleman, head of Dermedics Laboratories in Bridgeport, Conn., teamed up with the former Keneric Industries to reformulate and market an over-the-counter pharmaceutical product designed to treat the symptoms of hangovers. The product, Dr. Seltzer’s Hangover Helper, went on to become the best-selling hangover remedy in the U.S. It was eventually sold to a well-known manufacturer and, after almost 20 years on the market, was discontinued when that manufacturer was sold.
Realizing that the need for a safe, fast and effective hangover remedy still existed, Coleman and his team at Dermedics Laboratories re-formulated the product to meet new FDA requirements and, this summer, will re-launch the “Doc” in Circle K convenience stores throughout Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada, as well as in other retailers nationwide and on the internet at www.DrSeltzers.com.
“Hangovers are not always associated with drinking too much alcohol,” Coleman observes. “Sometimes factors such as hot weather contribute to the problem. Believe me, if you ever had a ‘hangover headache,’ there’s nothing more effective than Dr. Seltzer’s.”
More information is available at http://www.DrSeltzers.com.
A problem that could drive you to drink:
In 1998, during a conversation with a group of school nurses, Coleman had learned that two of their major concerns were the toxicity of existing head lice treatments and the fact that lice seemed to have become resistant to them.
Enlisting the expertise of one of the nation’s foremost homeopathic practitioners, Coleman went on to develop a safe and effective non-toxic head lice shampoo, X-PEL Anti-Lice Shampoo & Conditioner. Laboratory testing also showed X-PEL had the ability to repel lice, thereby making it not only a front-line treatment for existing head lice infestation but also a product that could prevent infestation.
“Combine these attributes with our state-of-the-art nit (egg) removal comb, and you have the safest, most effective head lice treatment available. School nurses love it. So do parents. Not only does it work as advertised, it is safe for humans, animals, fish and the environment. If people thought about where the contents of discarded bottles of those toxic pesticides end up once they hit a landfill, not to mention once they hit your kid’s head, they would certainly choose X-PEL,” says Coleman.
X-PEL is available at regional drug stores and supermarkets throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico such as Hannaford Supermarkets, Harris Teeter Supermarkets, Kinney Drugs, USA Drugs, Kerr Drugs, Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacies, Bartell Drugs. It is also the only non-toxic head lice treatment and preventative stocked by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for distribution to government agencies.
“We really want to get into the ‘big box’ national drug store and supermarket chains but, so far, it’s been too expensive for us to meet their demands,” Coleman says.
For more information and where to buy X-PEL, visit: www.x-pelheadlice.com .

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, May 24, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Progressive Finance, a merchandise lease to own financer, is announcing the launch of a new online customer account management system. “This has been something we know our customers have been looking forward to, and we’re extremely excited about everything this new system will be providing,” said Progressive Vice President Nate Roe.
“We will always pride ourselves on providing friendly and helpful service whenever one of our customers calls in, but giving the option to manage your account online brings a whole new dimension to customer service.”
The Progressive Customer Portal, as the account management system is called, allows customers to log in through Progressive’s website and manage their account 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Customers will have the ability to make payments, view their balance, update their information and make other changes to their account.
“Everything the customer can do from the Portal, they can do by calling in to our support line, but these features give the customer the kind of hands-on view of their account that they haven’t really had before. The reaction from our customers has been universally positive,” Roe said.
“We’ve always felt that our customer service and our technology have been two of the things that have set us apart, and it’s been great to roll out a service that combines both of those features.”
Roe said that Progressive has utilized an email campaign and training sessions over the phone to increase awareness of the Portal among their current customers, and he alluded to even more changes coming down the road. “This is just the first of many features we’re working on right now. We’ve set automation and ease of use as two of our highest goals for 2012, and the Customer Portal does a lot to move us in that direction, but we’re not done yet.”

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, April 18, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Progressive Finance, a merchandise lease to own financer, has recently integrated click-sign functionality with their online contracts. This new system will allow for stores to forgo the process of printing contracts for the customers to physically sign, and instead allow the customers to digitally sign their contracts from a computer, tablet, or smart phone.
“We’re very excited about the potential behind this new technology,” said Progressive Finance Vice President Kurtis Hilton. “Our system before was already fast and efficient, but now the store no longer has to worry about faxing or scanning any documents at all. All the customer needs to do is click a few buttons and they’re done. This is a level of automation that is unrivaled in our industry. ”

Hilton went on to explain that the e-signature program is currently being successfully used by select pilot stores, and will be completely rolled out within the next month.

MIAMI, Fla., March 15, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Beleza Pura, LLC announced this week the launch of Kerarganic – its newest line of keratin treatment and hair straightener. Designed to shake up the beauty market, it’s 100 percent formaldehyde-free, contains UV-protection ingredients and is the only keratin lotion in the world to contain 24-karat gold nanoparticles to intensify hair brilliance.
“Kerarganic is the new generation in hair therapy,” says Admir Serrano, founder and CEO of Beleza Pura. “And, I dare say, the safest on the market. Salon workers no longer have to worry about harsh odors, eye irritants or hazardous chemicals that are present in traditional keratin treatments. It’s a product that they can sincerely get behind and use with confidence. Now, even pregnant or breastfeeding women and children can enjoy keratin treatment. We solved the formaldehyde controversy.”
The Brazilian keratin treatment or Brazilian blowout, as it is also called, has been an important source of revenue to salons around the world. However, many stopped doing the treatment because formaldehyde, a main ingredient in the traditional keratin lotions, may cause health problems to hairdressers and clients. In fact, many clients are suing salon owners. As a result, several keratin brands containing formaldehyde are now forbidden in Europe, Canada, and Australia. In the U.S., both the FDA and OSHA are alerting hairdressers and clients about the health risks of formaldehyde fumes which are emitted during the treatment process. Formaldehyde has also been linked to cancer.
As the name implies, Kerarganic is a rich combination of natural keratin, the vitamin-packed, antioxidant Argan oil grown in Morocco; natural extracts; and an array of essential amino and fatty acids scientifically formulated to repair, beautify and straighten even the most resistant hair.
“There is no other product line on the market that rebuilds damaged hair like the Brazilian keratin treatment,” says Serrano. “Unfortunately, formaldehyde is a dangerous ingredient. We’re proud to have launched a product line that is free of formaldehyde or any other aldehyde or harsh chemicals, yet delivers the same expected results without the health risks. We want to bring the keratin business back to the salons in the safest manner possible.”
Another advantage of Kerarganic over traditional keratin treatments is that clients no longer need to wait two or three days to wash their hair after the treatment. With this new generation of hair therapy, hair is washed 20 minutes after the application process. It also allows clients to keep wanted curls with a simple twist in the final procedures.
Effects are visible within minutes after the first treatment and last approximately three to four months. To prolong results, Kerarganic designed a home care line composed of salt and sulfate-free shampoo; conditioner; leave- in conditioner; Argan oil serum, and an intensive weekly mask – all especially formulated to replenish keratin proteins, nutrients and vitamins that hair loses during the day.
Kerarganic® products are made and available in the U.S. and are also being exported to North Africa; the Middle East; Europe; and Central and South America.

FOLSOM, Calif., March 14, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Hill PHOENIX, a designer and manufacturer of commercial refrigeration equipment, and Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market are pleased to announce the grand opening of a new GreenChill Platinum Award-winning Fresh & Easy store in Folsom, California. GreenChill is an E.P.A. Partnership with food retailers to reduce refrigerant emissions and decrease their impact on the ozone layer and climate change.
A typical supermarket in the U.S. uses approximately 3,500 pounds of refrigerant. The Fresh & Easy Folsom store uses just 70 pounds – a 98 percent reduction that earned it GreenChill’s highest award.
“Environmental responsibility is part of our DNA. We’ve made a commitment to invest in sustainable technologies from the start,” said Steve Hagen, director of procurement and engineering at Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market. “Using new natural refrigerants puts Fresh & Easy on the forefront of sustainability our industry and ultimately makes these emerging technologies more cost effective for everyone.”
“The Folsom store is a fantastic example of the innovation that can be accomplished when government works together with businesses in a voluntary partnership to protect the environment and save money at the same time,” said Deborah Jordan, Director of EPA Region 9′s Air Division. “We are proud to be involved in this very successful project.”
Fresh & Easy’s Folsom store features Hill PHOENIX Second Nature(R) medium temperature fixtures and walk-ins running on glycol and low temperature fixtures and walk-ins running on C02. Glycol and C02 are environmentally friendly, natural alternatives to harmful HFC refrigerants.
“Fresh & Easy selected a Second Nature Compact Chiller system that effectively eliminates all HFCs from the store’s refrigeration system by using medium temperature glycol to condense the low temperature CO2. This is typically achieved with an HFC refrigerant,” explained Henry Pellerin, director, marketing programs for Hill PHOENIX. “The Folsom Fresh & Easy is the only store in the nation, to date, that uses this innovative type of system.”
Hill PHOENIX Second Nature Compact Chiller (SNCC) is the most environmentally friendly system available in the industry today. SNCC utilizes a unique heat exchanger technology that allows engineers to design a typical medium temperature supermarket system with the lowest refrigeration charge of any commercial refrigeration system on the market. As a result, retailers like Fresh & Easy can achieve a sustainable zero leak rate. SNCC is comprised of multiple compact chiller modules. Each module is a standalone refrigeration system and is completely factory-assembled, charged and run-tested prior to delivery.
GreenChill’s Store Certification Program is the only certification program in the nation that focuses on greener refrigeration. The Program’s chief goal is to reduce refrigerant emissions from supermarkets that damage the Earth’s protective ozone layer and contribute to global warming. A pound of leaked refrigerant can cause more global warming than 2000-4000 pounds of carbon dioxide.
About Hill PHOENIX:
Hill PHOENIX Inc., a Dover Company, is based in Conyers, Ga. The company designs and manufactures commercial refrigerated display cases and specialty products, refrigeration systems, integrated power distribution systems and walk-in coolers and freezers.

Fresh & Easy opened its first stores in Southern California, Arizona and Nevada in 2007 and set out to change the way consumers shop by making fresh meals and groceries more affordable and accessible. The company expanded into Northern California last year and now has more than 185 stores.
On average, Fresh & Easy stores use 30 percent less energy than a typical supermarket, which helps the environment and saves customers money. Fresh & Easy uses LED lighting in external signs and freezer cases, offers customer recycling in every store and uses advanced refrigeration and freezer units to cut back on energy usage. The company also recycles or reuses all of its display packaging, sending the majority back through its distribution center.

No-line commerce: FirstSpirit CMS combines online and offline channels for an unlimited shopping experience
Positive shopping experiences lead to significant sales increases / More attractive content with less work for editors
Oliver Jaeger, Vice President Global Marketing & Communications e-Spirit
Dortmund, February 27, 2012 – “No-line commerce” is the concept of the future for modern business. Why? Nowadays consumers no longer perceive the difference between online and offline services and they increasingly think of their information and shopping resources as part of an undifferentiated whole: information searches and purchase transactions via PC or smartphone, on the desktop, or on the road, delivery by mail or pickup in person at the store. The shopping experience turns into something unlimited – to no-line commerce, to be exact. It seeks out information and purchasing processes without media barriers and presents providers with new challenges with regard to their IT infrastructure. A professional content management system (CMS) supports companies in mapping evolving customer requirements in their sales and marketing processes and delivering current and high-value content across channels.
All important data and processes in one central interface
A content management system like the FirstSpirit CMS from e-Spirit e.g. simply and efficiently bundles all product information, business processes, and sales channels that are important for a successful business from the existing IT infrastructure centrally in a user-friendly interface -including data and applications from shop solutions, and PIM-, MAM-, and CRM systems. The seamless linking of data and processes also enables smooth decision-making and purchasing processes for the end user. Workers in the editing, PR, marketing, and specialized departments benefit from integrated and efficient work processes for editing and delivering high-value content. Through efficient localization workflows in the CMS, marketing and sales professionals at on-site locations can manage their regional shop websites and offers and can customize them to local requirements.
An optimal user experience for significant sales increases
No-line commerce is the next logical step in the development of a successful multichannel strategy. Indeed the ultimate goal goes beyond just improving usability and conversion rates on individual online and offline channels. “Only a seamless interlocking of all channels to form an attractive, unified company site offers customers an all-round positive sales experience”, says Oliver Jäger, Vice President Global Marketing & Communications at e-Spirit. “And reliable increases in sales numbers – both online and offline – are only possible with satisfied and regularly returning customers.” According to a recent study by Forrester Research, by 2016 mobile commerce alone will account for $31 billion in sales volume worldwide with a yearly growth rate of 39 percent. But an increase in sales over mobile device does not have to mean the cannibalization of the stationary market – what is most in demand are personalized cross-channel campaigns which can be used to effectively direct consumers to specific branch stores or to online shop offerings.
Managing successful campaigns directly from inside the CMS
To successfully implement cross-channel campaigns and optimally position online shops, it is necessary to have the support of professional marketing instruments. With FirstSpirit applications for e-mail marketing, web analysis, SEO and recommendation engines seamlessly integrate with the CMS and can link to data from a CRM system. This way marketing and sales professionals can easily develop personalized cross-channel campaigns for a no-line commerce experience. The result is a tailored customer appeal on all channels that accurately addresses customer interests and requirements – in the online shop via PC and smartphone, on social network platforms, in the retail store and print catalog, or via e-mail marketing.
More attractive content with less work
With FirstSpirit companies are able to provide their workers with a content hub that is easy to use, which enables them to simply and efficiently manage the growing wealth of product information and content. Editors can always access and edit the data or applications they need using a central user interface, and publish it to any of a full range of different formats and channels. This includes HTML, XML, PDF, and optimized publishing for mobile devices, as well as newsletters, brochures, mailings, and rich-media elements such as video streaming and image galleries. Social media content such as recommendations, ratings and discussion forums can be linked to the online shop website just as quickly and easily. With the FirstSpirit AppCenter a full range of web applications can be seamlessly integrated. The extraordinary integration capability of FirstSpirit and the intuitive and user-friendly interface ensure that all content and applications can be edited directly in the CMS with much greater convenience and in fewer steps.
