The Vancouver-based online retailer SHOEme.ca has acquired another competitor, this time snapping up St. Louis based Shoes.com from Brown Shoe Co. for a yet to be disclosed price.

This is the second acquisition as the company positions itself to be a leader in the online shoe business. In early July they acquired Seattle-based OnlineShoes.com.

SHOEme has been rapidly expanding and is looking for major expansion in 2015. They have already committed to taking a major chunck of the new office building at Seymour and Pender, which is set to start construction soon.

“Our top priorities as we head into 2015 are to continue to broaden our offering of shoes, and provide the best online shopping experience possible for our customers,” said Roger Hardy, CEO of OnlineShoes.com and SHOEme.ca. “Shoes.com’s strong history with top-tier brands and engaged customer base makes it a natural fit for our business. Together, we can provide a better overall experience for our customers with more access to great brands, with the same great service they’ve come to expect from OnlineShoes.com and SHOEme.ca.”
