OAKLAND, Calif. — Cost Plus World Market has updated its e-commerce site (worldmarket.com) to offer an enhanced shopping experience with social media integration, inspiration and solutions for the home, an increased number of products available online, expanded product information, a simplified checkout process and more.

“I view our new e-commerce site as a flagship store for the World Market brand. The new site better showcases what we have to offer online and in stores, and highlights the breadth of our unique products. We pay close attention to industry trends and will continually update and innovate the site to cater to our customers’ wants and needs. We're very excited about bringing the experience of our brand to more online shoppers,” says Barry Feld, World Market CEO.

The new World Market website enables customers rate, review and share items to their Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other social media accounts. In addition, customers can get inspired with tips and tools on home decorating, entertaining and gift giving through photos and videos.
