Woot Acquired by Amazon

Woot, the Carrollton-based company that sells super discounted items in short firesales announced today via their blog that they’ve entered into an agreement to be acquired by Amazon.

Woot will continue to operate as an independent brand similar to Zappos.

From their website:

Holy crap! Woot has signed an agreement with Amazon – yes, the Amazon – to become an independent subsidiary of the ecommerce colossus. Woot HQ will remain in Carrollton, Texas, and will operate as autonomously as other Amazon companies like Zappos and Audible. More details forthcoming after we pick our eyeballs up off of the floor. Anybody see where Lefty rolled off to?
