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.”
