This is a red level alert for savvy shoppers everywhere, New York shopping behemoth Century 21 is now open for business online. I was in NYC last weekend, but I missed my trip to Century 21, so naturally, I had to check out the online store on my return. The model for the online store is very similar to shopping on Gilt Groupe or Ideeli. There are featured designers and specials daily, and you can earn referral bonuses by inviting friends. Current sales include Converse by John Varvatos, Steve Madden shoes and dresses from Spanish label RAASTA. Look for Marc by Marc Jacobs coming May 23nd followed by Moods of Norway on May 26th. Just like other online shopping clubs, each sale last two days, and the hot stuff goes quick. To check out the Century 21 sales click here to use my invite to shop.
One thing is for sure, the website is easier to navigate, and less exhausting than the New York City brick and mortar store. But there is also less variety, and fewer styles to choose from. But stay tuned. I wouldn’t be surprised if the site expands and grows just as the brick and mortar stores have.
