Shoe shoppers in two of Canada’s most populous cities will soon be able to get footwear ordered online even faster.
Online footwear retailer Shoes.com began offering two-hour-or less delivery last week to shoppers in Toronto and Vancouver. The expedited delivery is available only on select styles and comes at a price: Each order delivered within two hours comes with a $19.95 delivery fee.
Footwear fashionistas in other Canadian markets won’t have to wait long for the fleet-footed footwear fulfillment service. Shoes.com says it plans to roll out two-hour delivery in a handful of other major Canadian metropolitan markets by the end of the year including Ottawa, Montreal, Calgary and Edmonton.
"The introduction of two-hour delivery for Canadian consumers not only demonstrates our company mission, it puts Shoes.com at the forefront of Canada's e-commerce market like never before, and will ultimately transform the way Canadians shop online," CEO Roger Hardy said.
Shoes.com, No. 180 in the Internet Retailer 2015 Top 500 Guide, raised $45 million in a round of private funding earlier this year. Top500Guide.com data shows that its audience is primarily female (55.14%). The company’s sales have grown at an annual rate of 9.02% over the past five years, going to an Internet Retailer-estimated $169.2 million last year from $109.9 million in 2010
