We have recently opened 2 new regional accounts, one is a chain of 34 charity stores in the East Midlands and another is a chain of utility stores within the M25 which we have trailed successfully in and are gaining stores by the week.
New Product Stockturn
We are enjoying much better stockturn as the improved new designs feed into the network and into displays on a monthly basis. This improvement has been noted by the network and we are getting very good feedback from Franchisees and retailers alike.
Franchise Network Sales
Helped by the new product the vast majority @75% of Franchisees are now reporting increased sales year on year from their areas.
