Coldwater Creek is an online American women's clothing and accessories retailer.


The company was founded in 1984 by Dennis and Ann Pence. Coldwater Creek sold its products in stores, through catalogs and online. The online outlet carried clothing that was featured during previous seasons. The company had 365 stores in operation by 2014.[1] On April 11, 2014, Coldwater Creek announced that it was filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and ceasing operations as of early summer 2014.

The intellectual property (use of the name, logo and customer list) was purchased through CWC Direct LLC, an affiliate of Sycamore Partners in conjunction with Coldwater Creek's ongoing Chapter 11 proceedings in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Delaware. CWC Direct LLC launched Coldwater Creek as a direct-only business with a new website on November 3, 2014.[2][3][4]
