An icon of the British high street, Clintons was founded in 1968. Today they are the proud operators of 231 stores across the UK. However, with rising costs and the ongoing challenges posed by online competitors hitting the business, they enlisted ERA to help optimise costs and procurement.
All of our cost consultancy business owners have the ability – and are actively encouraged – to work together. This allows more savings to be made in each consultant’s specialised field, in turn improving clients’ bottom line and increasing franchisees’ own profits.
The power of this approach is illustrated by the results driven by a group of franchisees for greetings cards and gift retailer Clintons, on behalf of parent company Esquire Retail.
