Groupon acquires flash sales online fashion retailer Ideeli for $43 million

Groupon announced today that it has acquired Ideeli, an online fashion retailer that specializes in flash sales, for $43 million in cash.

The New York-based startup, founded in 2007, will be allowed to continue running its own site, although there will be some cross-over with Groupon’s core business. “Ideeli extends our fashion presence and brings great relationships with many of the top brands in apparel,” Groupon CEO Eric Lefkofsky said. “Our customers have a demonstrated appetite for these offers, and by broadening our reach in this space Groupon is even better positioned.”

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

Earlier this month, Groupon completed its $260 million acquisition of Ticket Monster, formerly owned by the Korean subsidiary of LivingSocial.
