Home furnishings retailer CSN Stores LLC says it hired 80 new staff members in the first three months of 2010. The company now has more than 600 employees.
Among the positions CSN Stores, No. 63 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide, filled were customer service representatives, software engineers and e-commerce marketers.
The additions were possible, the company says, because CSN Stores’ first quarter sales were up 64% over the first three months of 2009. The company, which operates more than 250 specialized e-commerce sites, says it registered growth of more than 200% in the first quarter in fitness equipment, bedding, upholstery, pet goods, recreation room furniture, and toys. The company declined to disclose dollar sales.
"Now that we`ve seen our first quarter end on a very high note, we`re aiming to build even more momentum each quarter," says Niraj Shah, CSN Stores` CEO and co-founder.
Over the past 18 months CSN Stores has added more than a dozen new North American sites, including CSNOffice.com, AllModernPet.com and WheelchairSelect.com. The e-retailer also has launched U.K. and German sites such as CookwareByCSN.co.uk, LightingByCSN.co.uk and KucheundHaushalt.de, and established a European headquarters in Galway, Ireland.
