It will launch in May.

Luxury conglomerate LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, whose portfolio includes Bulgari and other jewelry and watch brands, is planning a broad-based e-commerce site, the Financial Times reports.

The site is slated to launch in May. It will be called Le Bon Marché, which is the name of a department store that LVMH owns in France.

The site will sell all of LVMH’s brands plus those of other luxury-goods companies, according to the Financial Times.

Business of Fashion reports: “It is unclear if the new online iteration of Le Bon Marché will operate on a wholesale or marketplace model, although wholesale is the likely avenue.”

The new e-commerce effort will put LVMH in competition with sites such as Farfetch, Net-A-Porter and Matchesfashion.com.

In addition to Bulgari, LVMH’s extensive brand catalog includes names such as Hublot, TAG Heuer, Christian Dior and Louis Vuitton.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
