Bath & Body Works Joins The Cellphone Marketing Parade

Falling within the continuing trend department, 1,500-store chain Bath & Body Works has agreed to start a mobile marketing campaign. Bath & Body adds its name to a laundry list of retailers who have recently started toying with cellphone sales, including McDonalds--which is preparing to allow customers to place orders while standing outside one of their restaurants--and Subway, which is starting to test sending coupons to customer's cellphones.

Bath & Body is working with Cellfire, which is a free downloadable application that provides coupons from local and national retailers within the user's geographic region.
