The efforts are part of the deep-discount retailer’s effort to reach a broader market and increase the productivity of its existing selling space. The newly redesigned website features the retailer’s signature color scheme and is said to provide simplified navigation. Customers still cannot place orders for grocery, produce, deli and frozen items; however, 99only.com does include a grocery and produce section that lets shoppers know at a glance what their closest stores have in stock.  The revamped site also lets customers know what deals the retailer is currently offering and what new products have arrived.

Also enhanced on the site is the retailer’s online ordering program, called Club 99. Customers order products in bulk cases and have them shipped to a store of their choice, avoiding shipping and handling fees as long as the order amount is more than $47.99.

"Since 1982 we've been providing our customers with great products and a quality shopping experience. This new website helps us showcase the broad range of merchandise we carry all while giving our customers another avenue for purchasing our amazing deals," says Eric Schiffer, CEO, 99 Cents Only Stores. "We are thrilled to display our everyday great values in a new and exciting way and are confident t
