June 11, 2015:Â Amazon the online retailer has launched a shoe and clothing section on its Canadian site. The online retail giant will begin selling apparel and footwear to its Canadian customers on Thursday, one of the few categories Amazon.ca had yet to introduce. The Canadian website commits to clothing and shoes for both men and women.
In the new section, Amazon carries brand names like Levi’s, French Connection, Speedo, Timberland and Puma – with 1.5 million new items stocked altogether.
More fashion lines will be added in the future, said Alexandre Gagnon, country manager of Amazon.ca.
â€œUltimately we want to have the biggest offering possible for our customers, so that Â list, hopefully, will be constantly evolving and growing,â€ Gagnon said.
Amazon believes in having the biggest breadth of selection, the best experience from a delivery standpoint and offering good value for customers. Amazon also hopes to conquer one of the common problems for clothing. It provides inconvenience of returning clothes through the mail.
The company said it will offer free shipping and free returns on eligible items to ease the worry of trying on clothes that don’t fit.
