First of all, Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!
A new Canadian company branded as Shop.ca is coming to the Canadian marketplace.
Aside from having a great domain name, I think their idea is a good one. Whenever I shop online, I like to deal in Canadian dollars and like to see the shipping come from Canada. It is just easier in my mind to deal with stores in your own country. From their own research, it seems like the Canadian online market is fragmented between many stores, and Canadians on percentage do less of their shopping online than many other countries, even though we are heavy internet users.
In addition to the expected convenience, Shop.ca is giving people $10 towards their first $100 purchase if you join now, plus they have a rewards and loyalty program. They haven't opened yet but are set to launch soon. There is a website up already on the domain.
Does anyone remember seeing the domain name Shop.ca sell, and for how much?
