We launched Luvocracy over 2 years ago with the belief that the shopping experience can be enhanced by connecting people to a world of unique and exciting products, and the individuals behind these recommendations. Fostering these connections has helped many of you to make great purchases based off of others’ tastes, expertise, and sensibilities. As we’ve watched this process unfold, we’ve observed time and time again that people and their recommendations can provide a hugely satisfying and rewarding buying experience. It’s been a very gratifying journey for all of us.
We’re thrilled to announce that Luvocracy has been purchased by @WalmartLabs. We’re incredibly eager to take our learnings and discovery-based shopping experience to an audience of over 140 million weekly shoppers online and in-stores at Walmart. Under the @Walmart Labs banner – Walmart’s innovation hub in Silicon Valley – we’re excited to help Walmart shoppers make better and more inspired shopping decisions — potentially a whole new way to shop and experience Walmart.com.
We appreciate the time you spent sharing your favorite product finds and curating them into creative collections on Luvocracy.com. We’re still working out the details, but in the coming days, we’ll be communicating next steps for Luvocracy. Stay tuned!
