NRF12: Day One launch news round-up

Jan. 15, 2012 | by James Bickers

Today saw the opening of the EXPO Hall at NRF's 101st Annual Convention & Expo, "Retail's BIG SHOW." There was a lot of news coming out of the 150,000-square-foot space at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York, and throughout the day we've been bringing you some highlights of new product and service launches being announced on the floor.
