Nordstrom Inc. is acquiring HauteLook Inc., a leading Web site staging private, time-sensitive “flash” sales, in a stock deal valued at up to $270 million.
The purchase marks the beginning of what is likely to be a pivotal year ahead for Nordstrom as it ventures deeper into cyberspace and advances its “multi-channel customer-centric model.” The retailer will also be testing mobile checkout, equipping sales people with other advanced point-of-sale tools, as it accelerates its mobile and social networking strategies. YiFi has already been added to the stores.
