We recently wrote an article for the Independent Schools Magazine, about the changing trends in Schoolwear retailing. Parents now expect to shop for school uniform in the same way they shop with other retailers, demanding round the clock access to a shopping service and an almost instant despatch of goods.
Having said that, our traditional shopping environments provide an invaluable service for new pupils, and still make up over 80% of our total sales. Whichever way parents choose to shop they are shopping later and demanding more of their schoolwear retailer.
Correctly predicting customer demand as uniforms change and pupils’ sizing becomes more difficult to forecast, is a balancing act. A good outfitter must have a good history in the schoolwear market coupled with great relationships with their schools and suppliers, things Stevensons take pride in.
Stevensons are proud to boast the best of all worlds with an easy to use website, coupled with great customer service on our order hotline and in store. Investment in our Customer Services and Distribution centre, along with an ongoing programme of shop refurbishments, mean customers can get the slick, but friendly service they require.
Stevensons supply over 300 schools with all their uniform and sportswear needs and offer a comprehensive range from standard school uniform and sportswear through to tailor-made technical sportswear for teams, clubs and tours.
