Urban bachata act Aventura is opening an online merch store on its official Web site. The store, powered by Global Merchandising, will sell t-shirts, tank tops and posters initially, with a target launch date of next week.

"We will start simple and move to some made-to-order merch and more variety depending upon fan requests," says Marti Cuevas, GM of Aventura's label Premium Latin.

Aventura recently launched its karaoke app for the iPhone and iPod
Touch.

Aventura will sit down for an in-person Q&A session at this year's Billboard Latin Music Conference, presented by State Farm in association with T-Mobile. The conference takes place April 26-29 at the Conrad San Juan Condado Plaza in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
