Charlotte Russe Scores As Fastest Growing In IR 500

Internet Retailer's latest list of the Top 500 e-commerce sites includes young women's apparel retailer Charlotte Russe at #464, with 2008 web sales of $11 million -- a 633% jump over 2007. That's the largest increase of any of the top 500. During the same period for its brick-and-mortar operations, same-store sales declined 1.5%.

The online turnaround was the result of a relaunch "in perfect harmony with the growth of e-commerce," said Emilia Fabricant, president and chief merchandising officer. She added that the brand took a "very focused point of view" in targeting fashion-directed at the 16-22 year old "who knows what's in fashion and what she wants to wear."

The top 10 in Internet Retailer's Top 500 are Amazon, Staples, Dell, Office Depot, Apple, OfficeMax, Sears, CDW, Newegg and Best Buy.
