Gilt.com is expanding, and now Canadians can join in on the online shopping fun
Gilt.com has announced that Canadians will now be able to take part in the popular website that holds flash sales for designer products. For the next 12 days, Canadian shoppers will also receive free shipping, which we figured would pique the interest of devoted online shoppers. Each day at 12 p.m., shoppers can go online and access 20 different flash sales of season apparel and accessories for men, women and children. Fashion won’t be the only market represented, as Gilt is offering home decor as well, but the emphasis is on being impulsive, because each sale only lasts roughly 26 hours. Gilt says nearly every item sells out in the first hour, so it seems like a good idea to buy early (and we’re sure, if they have it their way, buy often). It’s a popular website in the U.S., so we figure this is big news for people who want up to 60 per cent off on designer items they can’t typically afford. Frankly, we’re just happy it’s a flash sale and not a flash mob.
