COMPANY NAME: AB085-Re-locatable-Retail e-commerce site, developed to a very high
specific
LOCATION: All UK
TURNOVER (£): 100,000
COMPANY DESCRIPTION: Established two and half years ago, this business has rapidly
established a loyal following amongst a core audience of women in the 16 – 30 age range looking
to buy the latest clothing, accessories, jewellery, hair care and beauty items over the Internet.
Working with a very well designed, attractive, easy to navigate and perhaps most importantly „easy
to shop‟ site, with no shopping bags to worry about, no minute changing rooms to negotiate and no
crowds to push a way through, this business offers its customers access to „effortless style‟, a
designer look, incorporating the latest fashion trends delivered direct to the door – and all at prices
much lower than the High Street. This business offers a wide range of high quality merchandise
sourced from leading wholesalers. Its clothing range includes the latest releases of dresses, tops,
skirts, knitwear and bottoms with bags, belts, shoes, hosiery and sunglasses to match. Its jewellery
and hair and beauty ranges are no less extensive including everything from body jewellery,
bracelets, bangles, earrings, necklaces and rings right through to everything a girl could want for
hair care and styling and for lips, eyes, face, nails, bath and the body! By far the greatest asset this
business has is its e-commerce site. The site compares very favourably with any other site on the
web with functionality that can best be described as „intuitive‟. As expected, the site has a secure
payment facility and it incorporates a modified off the shelf shopping cart offering „real-time‟ stock
levels. If this site says a product is available, it really is! Shots of all merchandise can be enlarged
using a zoom facility enabling purchasers to look closely at every fine detail. Other sections, all
designed to increase spend per head, include „What‟s new‟, „Wish List‟, „Best Sellers‟ and „Also
bought…‟ – a feature promoting other pieces of merchandise that other purchasers of a given item
had also purchased. On the management side full site statistics can be collated using an easy to use
tool kit which also allows the site to be updated with new product and new pricing information in-
house, without the need for outside assistance. Customer service is equally as important to this
business. Orders received before 3.00pm are despatched same day. Two delivery options are
available - Royal Mail first class and guaranteed next day delivery with automatic free delivery for
orders in excess of £50. All the hard work required to establish a firm foundation for the future
development of this business has been done – an excellent e-commerce site, turnover slightly less
than £100,000 and a Client base of over 9,000 registered members, built in just over two years of
operation. As such it represents an excellent acquisition opportunity for a new entrant into the
marketplace or alternatively an existing clothing business – retail, wholesale or Internet based,
looking to broaden its operations and customer base.
