Amazon Canada Opens Online Clothing and Shoe Store

Amazon has brought clothes and shoes to its Canadian online store.

Roughly 1.5 million items for men, women, and children are now for sale on the retail giant’s ecommerce platform, in one of its biggest moves in Canada since launching here in 2002.

Since 2013, Amazon has added more than 20 new product categories to its Canadian store, including jewelry and auto parts.

Amazon sold up to $2 billion to Canadians last year, estimates BMO retailing analyst Peter Sklar.
