Bluestones One’s Merchandising team supported Wickes in their latest relocation project in Leicester, supporting with the closure of their central Leicester store and the opening of their new store a few miles down the road in Wigston.
Wickes Leicester required a partner that was able to efficiently and effectively relocate one store to another with minimal disruption. We implemented this project in three phases.
Phase 1 – Warehouse Reduction – During this phase, we were able to empty the entire warehouse of stock and work it on to the shop floor.
Phase 2 – Merchandising of the new store – We supplied a team of 12 people for 6 days to merchandise the complete store.
Phase 3 – Counting and transferring stock – We counted and transferred all of the stock from the Leicester store in order to quickly and efficiently empty the store.
This piece of activity was completed 1 week ahead of schedule and under budget.
