This business is joining the NASDAQ index under the ticker symbol “BABY” with 1,766,618 shares of common stock. These are expected to sell for $5.00 each.
What is PishPosh?
Founded in 2015, PishPosh is an online retailer of premium baby products.
The business works primarily as a baby gear distributor based in Lakewood, New Jersey. PishPosh showcases and sells its products through a showroom boutique and its website, www.pishposhbaby.com, as well as third-party marketplaces like Amazon.com.
The outfit stocks high-selling items in a dedicated warehouse and fulfilment center located in Farmingdale, New Jersey. The business says this gives it an edge over competitors because it improves customer service, shortens the delivery time compared with e-commerce retailers that do not hold any inventory, and lowers shipping costs compared to drop shipping.
