FurnitureInFashion Plans to increase its UK warehouse Facility
(PRWEB UK) 31 July 2012
FurnitureInFashion is planning to increase its UK based furniture warehouse facility by a further 50,000 sq. feet to meet its increasing demand of furniture. The company has decided to expand its warehouse after seeing the increasing sales and demands from the local and global clients and customers. FurnitureInFashion has been into retail business since 2008 and is now one of the leading furniture stores in the UK due to its durable and cheap furniture items. The increase in demand from the customers shows that they trust FurnitureInFashion’s brand. Asad Shamim shared his plan of expansion and said, “We used to have five warehouses scattered over different sites. Now with the expansion of our warehouse in UK with an addition of 50,000 sq. ft. we will be able to provide every facility under one roof. This warehouse will now include all the business including showroom, 90% of the stock, warehouse and other offices.”
Asad Shamim moved the FurnitureInFashion store from Trinity Street, Bolton last year because of the rising business rates and the change in the area in terms of retail base. He said, “The whole retail base in Bolton changed when Rivington Taylor closed, Focus stopped trading and the old college was demolished. This and an increase in our bulk customers prompted us to shift our warehouse in Farnworth, an industrial estate area in the UK.” FurnitureInFashion is not only earning through its online catalogue and showroom but it also has a great network off affiliates and drop-shippers. By expanding the FurnitureInFashion warehouse in UK, the company will be able to cater its drop-shippers as well and avoid any unprecedented shortages. Asad Shamim also said, “We are helping entrepreneurs setting up their drop shipping businesses as well. We are working in collaboration with many drop shippers at the moment which also requires us to store maximum furniture items in order to help drop shippers make money. So I ask the drop-shippers to relax and get ready for more business opportunities with FurnitureInFashion.”
FurnitureInFashion is working with almost 200 affiliates and drop-shippers at the moment. With such a wide network, the responsibility of the company increases as it has to provide furniture items to clients of various drop-shippers in a timely manner. Any delay on part of FurnitureInFashion will affect the performance of affiliates and drop shippers which will eventually make a negative impact on the sales of FurnitureInFashion. Asad Shamim said, “With such a large network of affiliates and drop shippers, the company has been able to enjoy increased sales by 40% in the first three months of this year. Many entrepreneurs find these modes of money making convenient as they don’t require any storage or inventory management. We on the other hand get extra hands in marketing our products and increasing sales eventually.”
With the expansion in UK based warehouse, FurnitureInFashion will be able to make more partnerships with drop-shippers which will increase the sales for the company and market its products. Asad also said that having separate showrooms at different locations was getting hectic as he wasn’t able to visit all the warehouses regularly. By bringing every business function under the same roof, FurnitureInFashion will be able to focus better and streamline the business functions appropriately.
