A-ROD CORP INVESTS IN STORR, A NEW MARKETPLACE TO DEMOCRATIZE RETAIL
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 16, 2019
Storr, a new digital marketplace that empowers anyone to open a store from their phone in three clicks, has launched. The company is A-Rod Corp’s latest investment in the e-commerce space. Also backed by the former CEO of Neiman Marcus, the former CEO of Macy’s.com, Elyse Walker, David Sacks’ Craft Ventures and Abstract Ventures, Storr signals the decentralization of a $3T global retail market dominated by large corporations like Amazon, Macy’s, and Nordstrom.
Storr is already working over 150 brands including Adidas, RE/DONE Denim, Solid&Striped, La Ligne, Jonathan Simkhai, Naadam, HillHouseHome, Spiritual Gangster, Rothy’s, Alex Mill, Pop&Suki, Galvan, and DL1961, and is onboarding new brands daily. Brands can integrate with Storr in minutes and the platform will eventually feature thousands of brands in several different verticals.
“I’m a big believer in Storr’s exceptional team and their potential to fill this white space in e-commerce and customer insights,” said Alex Rodriguez, founder and CEO of A-Rod Corp.
“Airbnb and Uber democratized hospitality and transportation by empowering the average person to use their personal assets to generate income. Storr falls into this category too. Anyone with a phone can create a store,” said Eric Senn, founder and CEO of Storr. “Storr accelerates the transition from centralized, channel-first commerce to decentralized, people-first commerce.”
“We are really excited to partner with such an iconic figure in sports and business who understands the power of one’s personal brand and sees that ecommerce is moving in a humanized and democratized direction,” said Torie Crown, Head of Business Development at Storr.
“We will be piloting a number of our commercial initiatives through Storr and look forward to collaborating with the team as they build towards market leadership,” added Jeff Lee, COO of A-Rod Corp.
Storr launched to a limited number of sellers today on iOS, Android, and web. The company will be adding more users from the waitlist in the coming weeks and plans to open the platform for anyone in 1-2 months.
