Massive Online Retailer Is Now At High Risk of Closing

A massive online retailer is now at high risk of closing as the company’s struggles deepen with their website currently being down.

Visitors to Zulily are automatically redirected to a blank webpage with only the message, “We are down for maintenance.” 

The message follows a period of time where “final sale” and “all items must go” language appeared on Zulily’s homepage, making it unclear if the company intends to go out of business or has already done so, reports RetailDive.

It’s also unclear if or when the website will come back online, which has been down at least since Monday. 

RetailDive reports that Zulily and Regent, the private equity firm that bought the retailer in May, did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment about the website or the company’s operational status.

Zulily’s customer service phone line is also no longer being monitored.

“When the number was dialed on Tuesday morning, an automated message said: “Thank you for calling Zulily customer service. We are unable to service your call. Please email us using service@zulily.com for assistance,” reports RetailDive.

“The call then cut off, with no option to leave a message. A message sent to the customer service email received an automated reply indicating the company would respond “within 24 to 72 hours.””

Zulily’s Facebook page was still live on Tuesday morning.

However, the last post was from three days earlier – a promotion to shop for Sorel boots, sneakers and slippers. It includes a link to the now-dead website and mentions that “all sales are final.”

Customer orders appear to be in limbo, as one person asked under the most recent social media post “So are we still getting our orders?”

Another said, “Items not delivered, tracking numbers don’t work and all of their help and support options are closed for maintenance. Will be reporting this page to Facebook as a scam site.”

This is a developing story.
