Our History

In 2005, best friends Marc Lore and Vinit Bharara started with a simple idea – to make life easier for new parents. They worked nights and weekends and enlisted a friend with her own family to answer customer calls and fulfill orders from her suburban garage. But there was one huge obstacle: most major manufacturers wouldn’t sell their products to a start-up. So, using their personal credit cards, they rented trucks and headed to wholesale stores up and down the Eastern Seaboard to buy diapers, wipes and formula in bulk.

Marc and Vinit opened a formal office in Montclair, New Jersey, in 2006, and the following year hired their first full-time employee. By 2009, the company was renamed Quidsi (meaning “what if” in Latin). Over the course of just a few years, Quidsi had added for health, beauty and household essentials;, a luxury beauty destination;, a pet specialty site; for toys, books, and games; for decor & home products; for natural and organic groceries; for kids’ sports and activities; and for kids’ clothing. Customers now had a seamless way to shop for everything they needed with one shared cart and easy checkout.

Seattle-based Amazon purchased Quidsi in 2011, although the company operates independently out of New Jersey. Here’s an idea of how far the company has come in such a short span of time. In 2006, Quidsi had two employees. Today, it has more than a thousand. Quidsi continues to focus on customers and explore the next big thing, always asking, “What if?”
