Amazon Announces Plans To Buy Quidsi
Amazon.com has announced plans to buy Quidsi, the parent company of Diapers.com, for 500-million dollars.
Amazon officials say the deal includes assumption of 45-million dollars in debt from the New Jersey-based company. In acquiring Quidsi, Amazon will also gain control of two other websites — Soap.com and BeautyBar.com. Last year, Amazon purchased Zappos.com, a website specializing in sales of shoes and other apparel.
