Hudson's Bay has added an online Marketplace to its web store, allowing its customers to shop high-quality and authentic goods that are provided by different sellers.
Though The Bay features its Marketplace offerings alongside its typical items that are available for pick-up and shipping from its stores across Canada, it highlights when a product is offered by a third-party merchant on its product pages. Shoppers are able to filter items from specific Marketplace sellers, allowing them to quickly compare different offerings and prices from a particular source.
Marketplace not only allows The Bay to increase its online stock to appeal to a larger customer base that's reliant on e-commerce, but also enables shoppers to find great deals when it comes to pre-loved luxury goods.
