Some thoughts from the interview

“We’re the only people retailing it in the UK, and it’s now the most successful shoe we sell

“We operate 5 stores, a store in the city of London and a handful around Essex/ London Borders”

“If you can manage to get it out there you have a good chance of making a living”

“Because we’re close to the market and we’re small we can adapt quickly when we see an opportunity”

“When you own a bricks and mortar store trying to go online is getting everything on there is an issue”

“Adding pictures, description, pricing, images… everything, it’s time consuming”

“We have one system that then feeds the information into the different channels where we sell”

“Amazons incredibly high standards helped us have incredibly high standards, they are teaching us how to operate an online business”
