Most stores have a website with a newsletter sign up on the home page. The newsletter includes sales and highlights new inventory so you never miss a great deal. If the store has a catalog, youíll usually find a "Request" button on the bottom or top of the home page.
If you canít find the Request button, go to the Contact page and email customer service. Between the exponential growth in online shopping and mobile applications, some stores have stopped producing print, but itís worth asking.
Like they say, sometimes the most obvious place to find something is the very last place you look. Shoppers who are active on social media sites like Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest should follow and like all of your favorite stores. Youíll receive plenty of heads up on new trends and deals, and be able to find catalogs for stores you love.

A number of stores will drop their recent print pages in your shopping bag when they ring you up. Many stores often keep a stack out by the register or near the entrance. If theyíre not busy most associates can sign you up to receive regular mailings right at the register.
Flip through the pages at a friendís home and youíll likely find a postage-paid insert about the size of a postcard. Carefully tear it out, fill it out and mail it in, and youíll be added to the mailing list pronto.
