EBags attributes the strong sales performance to an optimized product mix, competitive prices and a web site geared to holiday shopping. “Whether it was site speed, search, or pages where products are displayed, our team worked relentlessly to ensure that the eBags.com web site was ready for the holiday rush,” says Vince Jones, CEO.
EBags.com carries about 42,000 products from more than 500 brands, including Cole Haan, Fossil, Kenneth Cole, The North Face, Tumi and Vera Bradley.
