New fixed price retailer scales up with Futura

The news of the merger of 99p Stores, a long standing Futura customer, with rival Poundland, has put the spotlight firmly on the growing success of the fixed price retail model. Alongside Lifestyle and Fashion brands, this specialist retail sector has found plenty of reasons to go with Futura’s retail platform.

The UK’s newest player in this sector, Max 99p, which has plans to open 10 to 12 stores per year for the next three years, has switched to Futura’s EPOS and head office retail management software because they needed a robust solution capable of supporting the management team with timely and accurate business information and, just as importantly, one which would scale easily as the brand grows.

This last factor is an important consideration for any young retail business as an EPOS solution that runs out of steam, or simply doesn’t have the legs to support your growth, can be costly to put right. The disruption caused, at a time when you need to be focussed on other things, can be just as painful.

Max 99p brings a fresh and quite different feel to the fixed price arena, introducing the grocery model, with a range of fresh foods as well as wider aisles and a focus on customer service. With a growing inventory, some 3,500 SKUs, standardising on Futura as the business grows will help to ensure efficient allocations and accurate store replenishment.

Strong sector experience, with an easy to use yet functionally rich EPOS solution, were other reasons for selecting Futura which so far has been deployed to stores in Bedworth and Havant, with more to follow.
