AM Inbox: Linens 'n Things returns with first branded email

The Retail Email Blog monitors the email marketing campaigns of more than 100 top online retailers. Here are highlights from my inbox this morning:

Linens ’n Things, 5/15 — LNT.com Grand Re-Opening: 10% Coupon Plus Free Shipping‏
After fumbling their first email as the new Linens ’n Things at the end of February (see March 2 AM Inbox), they return with their first LNT branded email. It’s been two and a half months since their last email, so they’re likely to have a higher bounce rate and recognition problems that suppress open rates. They probably would have been better off sending out a monthly teaser email that provided information on their impending return to keep subscribers engaged.

Linens ’n Things is one of the six retail brands included in the Going-Out-of-Business Email Strategies reportlet, which has more details on how retailers have used email to wind down their operations and to reboot their brands.
