"Successful Deployment of In-Store Gift Registry on Thin-Client Linux Platform Enhances Customer Service"

"Cornerstone Retail Solutions announced today the implementation of the company's ExtendYourStore(TM) Gift Registry in over 215 Burlington Coat Factory stores across the nation. The implementation of ExtendYourStore Gift Registry upgraded Burlington's baby registry service from an isolated store paper-based baby registry system to a fully integrated, highly interactive system that ties all stores together."

"Last year, Burlington was one of the first retailers to announce intent to standardize its store environment on the Linux operating system platform, and this implementation was one of the first commercial applications deployed. The ability to combine Linux on the client-side and Solaris on the server-side illustrates the flexibility of Cornerstone's architecture, the ExtendYourStore Foundation."
