  • Competition:The business advertises on Google and has a fully comprehensive website which details the current catalogue & product line and also all available accessories. The business also sponsors local road junction roundabouts which in combination with local interest magazines, creates awareness and footfall in the retail part of the business. For the larger part of the business which is exhibition floorcoverings, the business takes advertising space in well known and well subscribed to, trade magazines.
  • Growth: The business operates very much within the scope of the vendors’ self-imposed limits and could grow rapidly by expanding the business reputation into a better known brand by means of a determined investment in marketing, advertising, and typical brand building techniques. It is believed by the vendors that the current levels of marketing commitment have touched only a small part of the company’s potential in the UK, particularly in relation to the demand for discounted used floor coverings for the commercial sector.
