Responding to hundreds of Canadian shoppers' requests, CSN spent the past
six months reworking shipping logistics to offer nearly one million different
home, office and garden products -- in a hassle-free way -- to its northern
neighbors. Today marks CSN's official launch into Canada.
CSN's product lines run the gamut from traditional to ultra-modern in
price ranges to fit almost any budget. Key sites under the CSN Stores umbrella
include: AllModern.com, Cookware.com, Strollers.com, Luggage.com,
BedroomFurniture.com, and CSNLighting.com to name just a few.
"We believe Canadian consumers have been underserved by their online
shopping options," said Niraj Shah, CSN's CEO and co-founder. "But now we can
give Canadians the same wide selection of products, well-trained customer
service counselors and savings opportunities that our U.S. customers enjoy.
This is a big, exciting step for our company and we feel it will be a great
benefit to Canadian online shoppers, as well."
CSN's technical teams have developed a one-of-a-kind, logistically simple
shopping experience for Canadians, which is more streamlined than other
current online options.
"While many retailers can send goods to Canadian customers, those
companies require customers to place additional calls and put in a lot of
extra effort, including dealing with customs and other red tape," said Steven
Conine, CSN's Chairman and co-founder. "But here at CSN, we have devised a
very simple, self-serve process where no follow-up calls are required -- a
process that's unprecedented in the online furniture industry."
Beyond offering greater ease in shopping, CSN has worked to reduce
shipping surcharges, compared to what other U.S. companies require -- all in
an ongoing effort to continue its tradition of strong customer service.
Founded in 2002 by two employees, CSN now employs 500+ people. The
company has grown from $425,000 in sales in 2002 to $200 million+ last year.
2008 sales continue to rise steadily.
