Operational Supplies Focus
Linens Direct is a company that recognises the importance of managing its cost base, especially in the current economic climate. However, with a growing network of stores and a popular internet business to boot, its internal resources are fully committed to operating and growing the business.
This has left little time to focus on the kind of forensic, line-by-line scrutiny of expenditure required to generate significant savings or the market research needed to negotiate streamlined contracts with suppliers.
In business for over 18 years, Linens Direct sells a wide range of soft home furnishings through its network of 32 stores across the country as well as online.
