SHOES.COM Ranks as Top Performing Canadian-Owned Ecommerce Company

Internet Retailer Announces Top Performers in the 2016 Top 500 Guide

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - April 28, 2016) - SHOES.COM today announced that it has been ranked the top performing Canadian-owned ecommerce company according to Internet Retailer's 2016 Top 500 Guide. SHOES.COM was also named the 10th top performing ecommerce company in North America and the 5th top performing ecommerce company in the Apparel and Accessories category alongside other well-known retailers including Nasty Gal, Kate Spade, and Urban Outfitters.

In 2012, SHOES.COM launched as a team of two in a basement suite in Vancouver B.C. and has since exploded to become Canada's fastest growing ecommerce company. Between 2014 and 2015, the company's sales grew by 150 percent bringing 2015 annual revenues to over $200 million. SHOES.COM's impressive growth rate is the result of its innovative guest experience that integrates the use of AI-powered technology, its proprietary selection of brands and styles exclusive to SHOES.COM properties, and its strategic acquisitions, including innerwear brand, Richer Poorer.

"The SHOES.COM team has been setting audacious goals from the start," said CEO and Co-Founder, Roger Hardy. "And today we're being recognized for reaching some of these ambitious targets. This is a major achievement for SHOES.COM and for Canadian ecommerce -- we take pride in being an agile, hyper growth business and we're honoured to be recognized amongst some of the largest retailers in North America."

Internet Retailer's Top 500 Guide is one of the most highly anticipated e-commerce market research reports of the year. Merchants are ranked by their Internet Retailer Performance Score, a proprietary scoring system that measures merchants' success in online retail in comparison to their peers and the overall e-commerce market.
