In its second-largest acquisition, Amazon buys the company for $970 million.
The Canadian manufacturer and retailer sells more than 1,000 products online.
Le Chateau, a Canada-based apparel manufacturer and retailer, today announced the launch of e-commerce sites for Canadian and U.S. consumers. The company offers content in French for consumers in Quebec and English for the rest.
The site features more than 1,000 items for men and women, Le Chateau says. “For the 2010 holiday season, Le Chateau guests will find a brand new assortment of cocktail dresses, glamorous handbags, elegant footwear and fine suits,” the company says.
Besides searching for items by product type such as dresses or bags, consumers can shop collections. For men, this includes categories such as “Lost Boys,” which features clothes designed for what Le Chateau calls casual weekends, and “Boyz ‘n’ Berry,” which features purple apparel.
