GEARING UP FOR DELIVERY OF NEW COLLECTION
We have invested in an additional branded trailer in preparation for the introduction of our eagerly-awaited Inspirations Collection to stores.
In anticipation of the increase in orders and deliveries on the back of the new collection, we have been working closely with our logistics partner to ensure all is set in time for deliveries in June.
UK sales director, Dave Darragh, commented: "We have just completed the livery of our second branded trailer in time to deliver our new collection into retailers.
"We have had numerous meetings with our logistics partner, Andrew Porter Ltd, in anticipation of the increase in deliveries and all the plans are in place. Over our busy pre-Christmas period, when deliveries were up more than 30%, we saw a success rate of 98.6%, which is far above the industry standard.
"I am confident that with our investment in time and forward-planning, our customers will see a similarly exceptional service as we introduce our Inspirations Collection into stores.”
The Inspirations Collection will see La-Z-Boy reaching a new demographic of consumer in the UK, with its fashion-conscious mix of modern designs – Fresh Inspirations – and vintage styles – Vintage Inspirations. The collection exceeded all of its sales targets when it launched at Interiors UK.
La-Z-Boy UK is also set to introduce additional new products to its core Comfort Studio range later in the year.
