AUSTIN, Texas — BigCommerce (Nasdaq: BIGC), a leading Open SaaS ecommerce platform for fast-growing and established B2C and B2B brands, today announced Coldwater Creek, a leading specialty retailer of women’s apparel, has launched a new ecommerce site with a modernized tech stack on the BigCommerce platform.
Coldwater Creek, a 40-year-old direct-to-consumer brand, faced an opportunity to upgrade its technology and replace its ecommerce platform to provide the company an ability to grow in a cost-effective and timely way.

Coldwater Creek’s new storefront delivers an elevated brand look with a heightened customer experience featuring nature-inspired palettes, intuitive navigation filled with captivating imagery and immersive storytelling, and visual badges and promotions to enrich the shopping experience. With an ecommerce infrastructure built on the open BigCommerce platform, Coldwater Creek is outfitted for long-term growth with the flexibility to add new functionality quickly and easily.
