An Anonymous reader asked yesterday: "So many blogs partner with CSN for giveaways. I am Canadian, and had never hear of CSN stores before. Any idea what the CSN stands for? I perused the internet and can't seem to find it, even on their own website. Am I the only curious one?! "
I had to pause when I read this. Because I haven't a clue what CSN stands for. I, actually, hadn't heard of CSN Stores until I entered an blog giveaway. I won. I fell in love with CSN Stores. I just know they have EVERYTHING I could ever need to buy...pretty much. So anyway, I did a little bit of research and found out the following tidbits:
- CSN Stores in based in Boston, MA
- It came to be in August 2002, with just 2 employees
- They have over 800 employees
- It is ranked # 61 of 500 in Internet Retailer Magazine's Top 500
The two people who started CSN Stores are Niraj Shah and Steve Conine. I'm guessing the "C" is Conine, the "S" is Shah or Steve, and the "N" is Niraj?
Anyone else have a better explanation?
