Hardy Capital Corp. acquires online footwear retailers OnlineShoes.com, and ireShoeMe.can

Seattle -- Roger Hardy, Founder and former CEO of optical giant Coastal Contacts Inc., announced that his company, Hardy Capital Partners along with a small group of prominent Canadian investors, has acquired OnlineShoes.com, a footwear retailer based out of Seattle, and ShoeMe.ca, a Vancouver-based online footwear retailer. Hardy intends to consolidate the two companies, creating the largest online footwear operation headquartered in Canada.

“The footwear category in North America is estimated at more than $50 billion and there are large segments of the population being grossly underserved,” said Hardy. “We are determined to redefine the shopping experience for North American consumers while delivering the savings and convenience they’ve come to expect from other online categories.”
