Roger Hardy is continuing his shoe shop acquisition run. The Canadian entrepreneur and chairman of Hardy Capital Partners has purchased Shoes.com, marking the third acquisition in the past five months for Hardy’s newly-formed company called SHOEme.
Back in July, SHOEme acquired 18-year-old Seattle-based online footwear retailer OnlineShoes.com. At the same time, Hardy Capital also purchased Vancouver, B.C.-based ShoeMe.ca and merged that company with OnlineShoes.com to create a parent company called SHOEme. The combined company is based in Canada, becoming the largest online footwear company in the country, and will continue to operate offices in Seattle.
Shoes.com was founded in 1999 and is based in St. Louis.
