The launch of PennyStorm.com marked the beginning of a revolution in entertainment shopping. And for the consumer whose shopping decisions and retail desires are influenced by celebrity culture, the web site will offer an unprecedented opportunity to follow in their favorite star’s footsteps.
PennyStorm.com is the world’s first online entertainment shopping destination-allowing members to win exclusive merchandise and purchase the latest technology and high-end fashions at astronomical discounts, using a unique bidding system. Upon joining the site, each member purchases “bids,” which they will then use to compete with other members for the chance to win items ranging from designer iPad accessories to NASCAR tickets at prices close to 90% below the suggested retail price.
Founded by Detroit, MI-based entrepreneur Warren DuBosé, the site is a culmination of new age demands and next level vision. “What sets us apart from our competitors is our “Dream Events”, exclusive celebrity-endorsed lifestyle auctions, which gives the fans nearly unrestricted access to their favorite stars,” states the VP of Operations, William Tolbert.
Through partnerships with celebrities across all facets and genres in entertainment, PennyStorm.com aims to offer fans a first-hand glimpse into the lifestyles of the rich and famous. No less than twice a month, members will have the opportunity to bid on a once-in-a-lifetime “Dream Event” experience that will allow them a day in the lap of luxury.
To kick off this entertainment shopping experience, PennyStorm has partnered with former “Real Housewives Of Atlanta” star Shereé Whitfield to offer one lucky fan an all-expense-paid $10,000 shopping spree in New York City, where she will serve as the winner’s shopping buddy. The auction for this “Dream Event” started on October 8th and will be open for a minimum of 48-hours. But the beauty of PennyStorm’s “Dream Events” is that each and every one will serve as a fundraising tool for a good cause. “Our number one goal is to create significant revenue streams for lesser known non-profit organizations through celebrity collaboration and partnership,” states DuBosé. “A portion of the proceeds from all ‘Dream’ auctions will be donated to a non-profit, based on a celebrity donation percentage, and PennyStorm’s celebrity matching multiplier.
For her first of many “Dream” auctions on the web site, Shereé has selected the Wish Upon A Hero Foundation as her benefiting charity. The Wish Upon A Hero Foundation grants the wishes of those in need, working to raise funds and awareness for causes ranging from some of the most well known in the world to rare diseases and specialized disabilities.
