Lycos Inc. Wednesday opened the Lycos Store, an online department store carrying thousands of products and more than 200 brand names.

The store will feature everything from jewelry to golf equipment to toys. The site will be linked across the Lycos network, which includes search engine HotBot, the directory WhoWhere and Web community Tripod.

Customers can browse by product category, merchant or price range as well as search for a specific product.

Bob Davis, Lycos' president and chief executive officer, said the store is perfect for online shoppers who want a one-stop shopping experience.

"Whether they want the chance to browse a diverse collection of merchandise or to find a specific item, the Lycos Store is the most convenient single source on the Web," he said.

Lycos will use OrderTrust's integrated network services to process orders and manage merchandise, fulfillment and accounting.
