AUSTIN, Texas -- December 11, 2012

Digby today announced that The University Co-op has been chosen as one of
Internet Retailer’s Top 10 Best Mobile Retailers for 2013, as part of the
publication’s Best of the Web Hot 100 list.

According to Internet Retailer, The University Co-op’s smart phone app,
powered by Digby, “seeks to give students, alumni and fans a sense of home and
school wherever they may be. The retailer packages RSS feeds of Austin and
campus newspapers and a University of Texas sports blog together with campus
webcams into its app. It hopes shoppers' responses to that content might tug
on their emotions enough to buy a T-shirt or other product."

“It is important to have relevant and changing content," says Brian Jewell,
vice president of marketing, The University Co-op. "The RSS feeds we have for
news is constantly updated with the ever-changing headlines of the day, and
our app users love the cams, which allow them to pull up a live shot of a
Co-op event. Having all these features in one app creates a one-stop user
experience for our customers.”

Selected by Internet Retailer editors, the Hot 100 list is the “who’s who” of
web and mobile sites and apps that have introduced innovations that improve
online shopping and that other retailers can learn from. For the Top 10 Best
Mobile Retailers list, Internet Retailer selected 10 retailers whose mobile
commerce sites and apps make shopping easy and enjoyable on smart phones and
tablets.
