Top Online Retail Sites

Women’s Wear Daily recently reported on the top online stores. Notice that all are budget-friendly stores. Also,  it appears that offline stores are starting to make some series gains online and that the sites of catalog companies like Coldwater Creek, LL Bean, and Lands End have successfully made the transition online.

From WWD:

“What we have noticed is that bricks-and-mortars are definitely closing the gap and becoming more competitive in the online world,” said Larry Freed, president and chief executive officer of ForeSee Results Inc., an online satisfaction research firm.
