e-Commerce websites for retail businesses are becoming more of a consideration for high street shops struggling during lockdown restrictions
It’s safe to say it has been a very testing year for individuals and businesses alike during the ongoing restrictions that are in place. Small retail outlets have borne the brunt of these restrictions by being denied the footfall that keeps their livelihoods going. e-Commerce websites for retail businesses have become a real consideration for any company wanting to keep the flow of sales going through their business.
Tiffany Fashion in Doncaster approached The Sofa Web and Design when tighter lockdowns were introduced as they had seen a significant downturn in footfall trade due to the new restrictions. Being a critical time in the run up to Christmas, they decided they had to act fast. Following the initial call we had a fully operational online store ready for trading within 10 days and taking orders a few days after the launch.
Understandably there was a lot of content for Tiffany to get on their new e-commerce website, so we quickly trained the team in how to upload the products and populate the website while we worked on the finer detail in terms of payment gateways, postage information and search functionality. It was a real team effort to get it turned around in the timeframe. This was acknowledged by Sarah.
“I recently had my website upgraded to an online store by The Sofa Web & Design and found them incredibly helpful and patient, particularly as I was working to a tight timeframe and didn’t know exactly what I wanted in the beginning. They were always quick to respond, knowledgeable and professional. I am very pleased with the end result. A great service and I would definitely recommend. Thanks Paul & Martin!”

Keeping ahead of the game and identifying trends in retail buying needs to be a consideration for all retail outlets in the current climate. More and more people are now buying online either through choice or neccessity. Recognising this could be a key decision for small retail outlets to keep the sales flowing and the cashflow coming in.
