J.Crew stands apart from other retailers by leading their international growth with e-commerce first, allowing customers exclusive access to its entire collection (women’s, men’s, and children’s) around the clock, anywhere and everywhere. The next phase in the company’s expansion plans will include opening specialty stores in select markets in Europe and Asia over the next several years.
