blue_transparentSwedish ecommerce platform Tictail has expanded to the US with a new office in New York. The company also announced closing a Series A investment round of $8 million, which will fund the new location.

Tictail bills its do-it-yourself solution for online stores as the “Tumblr of ecommerce.” While this is Tictail’s first time establishing a physical Stateside presence, it’s already an international product. The service now has more than 35,000 merchants on its network across 110 countries.
