Great brands like Very, isme, Littlewoods and Woolworths come together under the Shop Direct umbrella to create one of the freshest and most exciting retailers in the UK today. We have 10.5 million registered customers. Last year, our turnover topped £1.7billion.
Our contact centres handle some 25 million calls and emails each year, our warehouses send out a similar number of parcels. We sell a pair of jeans every 12 seconds.
And more men's casual jackets than TopMan, Burton and River Island combined.
But Shop Direct's not all about fashion. We're also one of the largest home furnishing and electrical retailers in the UK. So whether customers are looking for a microwave or a maxi dress, a bedside table or a belted wrap coat, a plasma TV or a printed playsuit, they know where to come.
Though we don't actually market ourselves as Shop Direct to customers, you'll certainly have seen the recent advertising campaigns for our Very and isme brands, fronted by high profile celebrities like Fearne Cotton, Holly Willoughby, Steve Jones and Lynda Bellingham. All the celebrity endorsements in the world, however, would count for very little if we didn't have top-flight products to back them up.
And to that end, we've created a diverse range of brands exclusive to Shop Direct.
