Pushing sales beyond the magic £100 million

It’s been a busy time for Morleys Stores, the London-based independent department store group.

Camp Hopson in Newbury, a feature of the Berkshire market town since 1921, became store number eight at the end of 2014. It’s clearly a good fit for the group and Morley’s head office management team expect the acquisition to help push sales beyond the magic £100 million mark.

Of course integrating the new business to take advantage of centralised buying and streamlined operations, while maintaining the independent character of the store, has been a keen focus for the last six months. Extending the Futura retail management and EPOS solution to Camp Hopson is part of the process.

You can read more about this here, including comments from Neil Stockton, Finance Director for Morleys Group on their experiences to date, plus the features and functionality that are important to them, including Futura’s integrated gift card solution and the customer loyalty module ‘Futura4Loyalty’.

Bringing Camp Hopson into the fold has gone very smoothly, one of the benefits of Futura being that it is simple to use and easy to learn, but at the same time feature rich with a wealth of functionality. This is an important factor to consider if you are also expanding, whether you are following the acquisition route or creating new stores.

Camp Hopson joins an impressive portfolio of local department stores each one unique and loved by a loyal and local customer base. We wish Morleys all the very best as they continue to grow and think, if you too are looking for a retail platform to support your growth, Futura might just be the answer.
