Report: Pier 1 Imports to Sell Online

FORT WORTH, Texas-Reports said that Pier 1 Imports will return to online selling, after it stopped its e-tail efforts three years ago.

Alex Smith, Pier 1's chief executive officer said during a recent year-end earnings call that he has made the company's return to selling online a top priority, according to Internet Retailer.

Pier 1 discontinued its online efforts in June 2007. At the time, Smith said the company needed to focus on its brick-and-mortar stores.
