"A customer on ideeli could shop three brands and get some advice on what's hot for fall in the time it takes to find a parking spot," says Paul Hurley, CEO of ideeli, a members-only online retailer that offers Groupon-type sales for designer apparel and accessories starting at noon each day, seven days a week. The company is constantly fine-tuning its strategy based on customer feedback; for example, ideeli now holds plus-sized sales twice a month since the overwhelmingly positive response from the trial run. "We are providing consumers more than just clothes on a rack; users expect more. They want to be entertained, they want to know what's trending, and they want curation."
