Bluestones One’s merchandising division is proud to have supported The Works across the New Store & Refit programme to deliver merchandising activity on time and on budget. We have worked closely with The Works senior team to ensure that our teams understand the unique ways of working associated with such a retailer and are continuing to invest in order to support the delivery of this activity.
The Works had trialled competitors previously and wanted to ensure that we grasped the unique nature of their business, the standards expected and the volume of growth they deliver every year. We also applied our own knowledge and best practices to ensure that we were the supplier that went beyond those initial trial stores.
We had to ensure our teams were carefully selected and trained before we delivered our first store. We then had to ensure we took all of the appropriate steps in order to develop our teams for the challenges that lie ahead with this fast-paced retailer.
Our merchandising division has continued to be awarded further stores. Whilst we recognise that we are only as good as our last project, we believe that the foundations are in place for a long-standing and successful working relationship with The Works.
