NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--eBay, the world’s largest online marketplace and a leading U. S. destination for fashion, today introduces the Fashion Outlet, the first virtual outlet mall in the U. S. , allowing shoppers anytime, anywhere access to discounted designer fashion. The Fashion Outlet extends eBay’s unparalleled selection of clothing, shoes and accessories with great deals on new merchandise direct from a collection of popular lifestyle brands and top retailers, including Neiman Marcus Last Call, BCBG, Spanx, Brooks Brothers, Reeds Jewelers, Jockey, William Rast, Fila, Timberland, Custo Barcelona, Hanes and more.
“Outlets are the fastest-growing retail channel, and we’re excited to bring that shopping experience and value to our shoppers – anywhere, anytime, anyhow”
“Outlets are the fastest-growing retail channel, and we’re excited to bring that shopping experience and value to our shoppers – anywhere, anytime, anyhow,” said Miriam Lahage, eBay Head of Global Fashion Brand. “The Fashion Outlet on eBay represents a new, innovative off-price sales channel for brands, retailers and designers to drive multi-channel distribution and incremental sales and engage a new audience by tapping into our community of dedicated shopping enthusiasts.”
Building on the momentum of eBay’s debut outlet sites in the U.K. and Germany, the Fashion Outlet features an incredible selection of women’s and men’s apparel, denim, shoes and handbags, at compelling, “Buy It Now” price points comparable to brick and mortar outlets -- 20 to 65 percent off the manufacturer's suggested retail price. Within the Fashion Outlet, shoppers can browse by store, by brand, or by category from a growing roster of dedicated virtual storefronts, offering more than 200 favorite brands and designers.
“Joining The Fashion Outlet enables Last Call to leverage eBay’s innovative platform and community to access an entirely new customer base,” said Ann Paolini, Managing Director, Last Call. “By bringing Last Call to the eBay marketplace, we’re allowing busy shoppers instant gratification to buy it now; it’s literally a great outlet to reach great deals.”
The launch of the Fashion Outlet marks another milestone for eBay Fashion, which continues to provide innovative ways to shop fashion and unlock the incredible value and selection available on the marketplace. The new destination joins other offerings including the eBay Fashion iPhone app, eBay Fashion Vault, eBay’s fashion events destination that gives shoppers “Buy It Now” access to direct-from-brand merchandise, and the Designer Exclusives program, which has featured exclusive, ready-to-wear fashion and accessories at accessible price points from designers like Narciso Rodriguez, Derek Lam and Alexander Wang.
