Most people will purchase something from Newegg.com at some point in their geeky lives, but have you ever thought of how big they really are? Well, if you haven’t thought about it before then this will put it into perspective:
Newegg.com anticipates its worldwide sales will grow 30% to US$1.7 billion in 2006, up from an estimate of NT$1.3 billion in 2005. Every day, the online retailer generates US$5-7 million in sales, with about 550,000 visitors to its website on average every day.
I would say that Newegg.com has quite a business going on. They are also planning on making their way into Europe so that they can capitalize on markets all around the world. Now if only they had retail stores that had their online prices, then I would finally be able to say goodbye to Best Buy.
