We spoke with Alix Filarski, Director of Marketing at FedEx Dataworks, about how ShopRunner continues to change the game!
The Knockturnal: Where did the inspiration for ShopRunner come about? What is a bit of its origin story?
Alix Filarski: We launched in 2010 with a mission of bringing shoppers closer to the brands that they love through free 2-day shipping and free returns. As we grew and the world of ecommerce changed, we expanded our offering to support shoppers through their entire shopping journey from brand discovery to post purchase. Today, we’re all about putting the confidence back in online shopping with our free ShopRunner membership which provides automatic order tracking, free shipping and returns, and exclusive member benefits, so you can afford to shop boldly.
