“The new features on address feedback we received from consumer focus groups and members of the trade,” says Michelle Peranteau, Manager of Marketing Communications for PGI. “The revamped has retained many of the established favorite features of the site, but they have evolved to answer the needs of the site visitors and trade. Additionally, it incorporates several new resources for both retailers and manufacturers, to which we’re already receiving a great response.”
