E*TRADE Adds Online Shopping Center

Financial company E*TRADE Group Inc. is expanding its services once again by opening an online shopping center at its etrade.com Web site.

Storefronts include: Music Boulevard, ComputerShopper.com, eGift, Electronics.net, CarFinance.com and The Savvy Traveler.

E*TRADE users can access the online shopping center by clicking on the "Marketplace" tab at etrade.com.

The site is looking very portal-like lately, as it recently added e-mail and merchandise retail to its investment and financial offerings to customers.

"As a leader in e-commerce, it's important to provide our users with the most comprehensive Internet experience available," said Jerry Gramaglia, senior vice president of marketing for E*TRADE. "The new online shopping center provides shopping alternatives for some of the most frequently used products and services."
