INDIANAPOLIS, April 22, 2015 – Angie’s List (Nasdaq: ANGI) today announced an exclusive relationship with Shaw Industries, the world’s largest carpet manufacturer, that will provide Angie’s List members with exclusive product offers from Shaw.
“We continue to seek out relationships with the very best manufacturers in the home improvement industry as a way to deliver increased value to our members,” said Pat Brady, president of Marketplace for Angie’s List. “Shaw is a world leader in flooring, and we are proud to be able to offer Shaw products exclusively to our members.”
Brady added that the agreement with Shaw comes on the heels of a similar agreement Angie’s List announced last month with Benjamin Moore & Company. Both Shaw and Benjamin Moore are Berkshire Hathaway companies.
Under the agreement, Shaw will provide discounts to service providers on Angie’s List who buy Shaw flooring for installation to Angie’s List members. In addition, members will be able to purchase pre-packaged offers from Angie’s List’s online marketplace that include Shaw flooring and installation.
“This is the perfect opportunity to partner with the home improvement industry’s most trusted source of local reviews and recommendations,” said Trey Thames, Shaw Floors’ vice president of product and marketing. “Angie’s List recognized what information homeowners appreciate most and set a new standard of service in today’s digital marketplace. We could not be more pleased to connect Angie’s List members to premium Shaw Floors and our network of authorized retailers.”
The Shaw Flooring Network is composed of top independent retailers across the United States and Canada who have chosen to align their business with Shaw Floors.
“At Shaw, we’re committed to providing the independent flooring retailers of the Shaw Flooring Network the industry’s best products, merchandising, and marketing services,” explained Aaron John, director of the Shaw Flooring Network. “This exclusive partnership with Angie’s List delivers on that commitment by promoting our retailers in communities across North America and providing them visibility to more than three million discerning households.
