Anglaes, a Canadian online shopping giant, has launched a new website aimed at the U.S. market, Canada’s largest market.
The site, which will debut on Wednesday, allows users to book, search, and purchase items from various online shopping sites and other merchants.
The site’s name is Anglaising, which means “beautiful” in French.
The website is similar to other sites launched in Canada, including Anglaize.ca and Anglaise.ca.
Anglaises’ new site is called Anglaizing in French, and its main goal is to help Canadians find items on Anglaised.ca, a site that is popular with Americans looking to shop in Canada.
Anglaises founder, Eric Stoltenberg, says Anglaisation’s goal is not to make shopping more efficient, but to help Canadian shoppers get the best prices.
“There’s a lot of information available to Canadians online,” he said.
“We want to give Canadians a better, more informed experience.”
Stoltenburg says Anglassy.ca offers Canadian shoppers an alternative to the US, which is often criticized for its high prices and poor customer service.
Anglassing is designed to appeal to Canadians in the U.
“Canada has been struggling to keep up with the United States.
The US has a lower minimum wage, and it has seen the country’s economy slow down,” he says.
“The US has one of the highest rates of infant mortality in the world.”
Stodt says the new Anglaiz.ca will provide Canadians with a more accurate price comparison.
“We know we’re not going to win the US market, but we do have a lot more information than Anglaismas,” he explains.
“In the US the internet is the best tool for finding things.
In Canada we have to go online, but there are so many places where you can find products.”
Stolen goods and counterfeit goods are common problems in Anglizing.ca’s U.K. and Canada markets.
Stolen products can cost consumers hundreds of dollars and have been known to lead to violence.
“I have heard horror stories from people who have had to pay for products that they never wanted to buy,” says Stolstenberg.
“You don’t know what you’re going to get, so you have to be prepared.”
Anglaizing also allows customers to search for products by category, and search for the name of the brand that is listed.
It will also help shoppers locate a store or a particular brand.
Stolstenburg says the site will help consumers understand the differences between U.I.I., Canadian Tire, and Anglising.ca.
“When you’re shopping online, you can search for anything, but Angliz.com is really designed for people who are looking for products,” he explained.
“So you can do your shopping by category and product, you won’t have to search the web for product categories.
Anglas will let you do that, but you’ll have to navigate to Anglistan.”
Anglizing’s website will debut in Canada on Wednesday.
