Founder Julie Deane said the business was entering a second decade with “clear direction, new collections, trade partners and store openings” to celebrate 10 years since she founded the company with a budget of £600. The British retailer is set to open on a new site on Neal Street in London’s Seven Dials, which will also be its headquarters. Employees who previously worked at London’s Covent Garden store, which closed its doors last month, will now be transferred to the new store. “We have chosen Seven Dials as the location for our new flagship shop as we believe this is where we feel most at home,” Deane said “Our new Neal Street flagship shop is midway between our first home and our previous James Street location, and we believe this is exactly where we should be. “The streets are lined with eclectic independent brands that brim with creative atmosphere.”

Article | February 24, 2020

For consumers, shopping can either be an exciting experience or a downright stressful one. Finding enough time to shop for the perfect gift or merely everyday staples while attempting to manage the challenges of work, family and everyday life can undoubtedly add to stress levels. Considering all of the expectations and obligations that exist within a consumer’s life, it’s critical for retailers to be respectful of their time when they have so little to spare. It's no secret that consumers’ choices on how, where and when they buy are dramatically redefining the retail industry as we know it. In order to stay relevant and top of mind for consumers, retailers must work to deliver the best possible shopping experience.

How to Boost Your Sales with Ecommerce Fulfillment

Article | March 3, 2020

Conditioned by ecommerce behemoths, consumers now have high expectations for online shopping and ecommerce fulfillment. They demand more than just easy product selection and ultra-fast or same-day delivery; they also want flexibility in both delivery location and delivery time, and real-time updates throughout the parcel’s journey. Smart retailers understand these rising customer demands, and therefore increasingly put the customer first – not the product – in order to build loyalty. Even one unsatisfactory experience can end an otherwise fruitful customer relationship. A recent study from BigCommerce indicates that some relationships end before they even get started. The study found 77% of online buyers abandon their purchase if the shipping cost and services are deemed unsatisfactory, and 87% will choose a retailer specifically because free shipping is offered.
