Shoppers are increasingly turning to the web, according to comScore’s 5th Annual Local Search Usage Study. While this may not be a revolutionary finding in 2012, the study did make a surprising discovery: shoppers, especially those equipped with mobile devices, are actually utilizing local search and not merely purchasing online.

Victoria’s Secret will open a PINK store at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington that will feature the limited-edition PINK NFL Collection, most of which is expected to promote the NFL’s most valuable team.
While the Victoria’s Secret line isn’t new to the NFL, Cowboys, or even the Texas Rangers (who have their own PINK line), the company said it’s the first time they have opened a store inside a professional sports venue.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for Oct. 1, just hours before the Cowboys host the Chicago Bears. On hand will be Victoria’s Secret models Elsa Hosk and Jessica Hart along with Dallas Cowboys executive vice president of brand management, Charlotte Jones Anderson. The group will then unveil the line of co-branded women’s items including tees, sweats, hoodies, tank tops, underwear and sports bras.
Ladies, you don’t have to go to the stadium to get your gear however. The limited edition Cowboys Collection items will also be available in Victoria’s Secret stores throughout North Texas and online at victoriassecret.com/pink/dallas-cowboys.
Forbes magazine this month named the Dallas Cowboys the NFL’s most valuable team for the sixth consecutive year, worth more than $2 billion.
