BigCommerce, a provider of multi-channel ecommerce software for online merchants, named Gorilla Sacks the grand prize winner in its $35,000 Ecommerce Makeover Contest. Gorilla Sacks, whose tote and messenger bags made from recycled billboards are available online at GorillaSacks.com and in boutique stores nationwide, will receive a professional store redesign and migration of their online store to BigCommerce, as well as other prizes valued at over $20,000.

Gorilla Sacks, founded by Lisa Zawacki, converts retired billboards into one-of-a-kind messenger, market, tote and sling bags. The company also donates 10% of its profits to Gorilla Haven, whose mission is to help make every captive gorilla's life as enriched and natural as possible.

BigCommerce announced that the four runners-up will receive a BigCommerce Gold Store and other promotional opportunities. The four runners-up are CoastCityStyles.com, KettleBellsUSA.com, LatinPopShop.com and OverTheMoonRibbons.com.
