Retail Editor 1 -- Home Textiles Today, September 6, 2013
Jacksonville, Fla. - The 260-unit strong Stein Mart Inc. this week added another venue to its store-count - its newly launched e-commerce site that sells its broad assortment of products across apparel, accessories, home and gifts.
"We are excited to announce that we are in the e-commerce business and happy to be able to serve our customers who like to shop online," said Jay Stein, ceo. "As we learn more and grow this business, we anticipate that this channel will rapidly become our largest flagship 'store'."
In addition to a large selection merchandise carried in Stein Mart's brick-and-mortar stores, the site offers online-only goods. Stein Mart said it will be adding more merchandise categories to its online assortment over the next several weeks, including a limited selection of shoes.
"The key driving force for opening the online store was to expand our customer base and offer our loyal customers 24-hour access to shop wherever its convenient - an opportunity that many Stein Mart's customers have asked for and anticipated," the company explained.
