Tuesday Morning shuts down online shopping
Retail Editor 2 -- Home Textiles Today, August 20, 2013
Dallas - Tuesday Morning is no longer selling merchandise online. A posting on the company's website says that due to the nature of its closeout business, the Dallas-based retailer has ceased its online business and will focus "on presenting exciting in-store assortments of closeout, brand name, first quality products for your home at unparalleled savings."
Visitors to the site are asked to click on the department tabs to learn more about the company's products and find a physical store location.
According to a BloombergBusinessWeek report, Tuesday Morning shut down its e-commerce site last month to focus on its 800 brick and mortar locations. The company says the nature of its business, popular for its "treasure hunt" atmosphere, is "better suited for in-person shopping."
The company started selling items online last year, but made 99% of its revenue in its stores, Tuesday Morning spokeswoman Jennifer Sanders told Bloomberg. Read the complete story here.
