CHICAGO, April 15, 2013

CHICAGO, April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Acquity Group (NYSE MKT: AQ), a
leading global Brand eCommerce® and digital marketing company, announces today
the launch of Aritzia.com, a high-performing eCommerce experience for North
American fashion retailer Aritzia. The new website complements Aritzia's broad
brick-and-mortar presence and delivers a compelling digital experience to the
company's fashion-savvy shoppers.

"Our primary goal was to improve brand engagement online," said Brian Hill,
CEO at Aritzia. "Acquity Group helped us develop our eCommerce strategy and
translate our distinctive in-store experience for online audiences. The new
site merges content and commerce, offering high-fashion editorial content and
a magazine-style design. It enables our customers to seamlessly purchase items
they love."

As a boutique retailer of women's clothing, Aritzia's business is built around
high-quality in-store customer experiences and interactions. Acquity Group
supported Aritzia's reach from brick-and-mortar to online while maintaining
the brand's unique voice, style and commitment to customer service.

The launch of the new Aritzia.com is the product of a carefully orchestrated
planning process. Acquity Group supported the initial strategy and technology
selection, and led development on the Demandware Commerce platform.

"Aritzia's new site is a true convergence of content and commerce designed to
evolve with customers," said Andy Peebler, Acquity Group Executive Vice
President. "By taking the time to strategize its entry into eCommerce, Aritzia
achieved a site that performs exceptionally well and dovetails perfectly with
its brick-and-mortar boutiques."

Over the last two years, Acquity Group has expanded into several new markets
to meet increased demand for its unique Brand eCommerce solution, which blends
strategy, creative design, digital marketing and technology. The success of
Aritzia.com further strengthens areas of Acquity Group's expertise in meeting
the digital needs of highly recognizable retail brands.
