Internet Retailer’s definitive ranking and analysis of America’s 500 largest e-retailers is based on annual 2008 Internet sales, researched by Internet Retailer and confirmed by retailers. This report includes company financial, operational and performance data, as well as vendors inkey categories.
According to Ritz Interactive President and CEO Fred H. Lerner, it is no accident the Ritz Interactive network consistently rates in the top 25 percent of online retailers. “From the very start, we have been committed to providing our customers with a world-class online shopping experience,” said Lerner. “That means consistently delivering on our promises – all the way through the selection, purchasing and fulfillment processes. Sure we benefit from our well-known, trusted brands, but it’s the ease of use, savings, and superior service that keeps customers coming back to our sites,” Lerner added.
“Ritz Interactive used its diversified e-commerce business model to make it through a tough year in the camera and consumer electronics segment,” says Internet Retailer editor-in-chief Kurt Peters. “Some store-based chains didn’t make it, but Ritz Interactive’s rank as No. 124 on the Top 500 list is a testament to their resilience and staying power as an online retailer.”
