OFF-PRICE AND OFFLINE: The Men’s Wearhouse Inc.’s K&G discount division might have been in play for nearly a year, but it’s no longer online. Visitors to kgstores.com were informed, “Although our e-commerce store is no longer accepting online orders, our retail stores are still open for business as usual.” Taking a break from the back-and-forth about the company’s attempts to acquire Jos. A. Bank Clothiers Inc., Doug Ewert, MW’s chief executive officer, responded to questions about the site’s shutdown through an e-mail and said it had nothing to do with a pending sale or “anything strategic for K&G,” but that it “did not make financial sense to continue.”
