“Dramatic, spectacular displays work well for us in flagship and high-volume stores, but in the past they have been executed on a one-off basis. This has meant high costs, and high-consumption of staff time. Moving to a common display that delivers all the in-store theatre and excitement that works across the UK and Europe has been a huge success in terms of saving time and money, while delivering on-brand store events.”
