SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pinterest, Inc. (NYSE: PINS) – Today, Pinterest is announcing it has completed the acquisition of THE YES, an AI powered shopping platform for fashion that enables users to shop a personalized feed based on the user’s active input on brand, style, and size. Pinterest believes that THE YES’s leadership, innovative technology and talented team, combining shopping expertise with fashion industry credibility, will help accelerate Pinterest’s vision for it to be the home of taste-driven shopping.
Pinterest is building a destination for shopping that brings together the unique commercial intent of its audience and the ability to visually explore products as you would in a magazine or catalog. Over the next few months, Pinterest plans to sunset the THE YES app and website to allow the merged teams to focus on technology integration and evolving Pinterest’s shopping vision.
