He also discussed the merchant's recent cross-channel efforts: a virtual world online for bear owners, which has led to the creation of more than 20 million avatars; an uptick in Facebook fans to 1.7 million, up from 200,000 a year ago; and a mobile app, which has drawn more than 800,000 downloads.
