About the store

The Portsmouth store has 17 team members. Our best selling ranges are Bath & Gift, which are helping us to reach our goal of becoming a £1mil turnover store. Over the last 2 years we have been very profitable, and are on track for a 25% retail margin this financial year!

This year we are working towards expanding our sales into other ranges, utilising slate consultations as a tool to boost the customer experience and get new products into our customer’s hands. We are also looking to boost our online presence through Google My Business, bringing new customers through our doors and becoming a 5* reviewed business.

Our most recent Mystery shop score was a whopping 94.9%, up from 84% in January. We are looking for someone who can help us in creating those Lasting Impressions to hit a 100% score in the next Mystery Shop!

Now more than ever we need innovative and enthusiastic individuals to push through retail boundaries and grow the business, looking to expand our presence from within the four walls of the store.
