Department store chain House of Fraser relaunches its website with a new premium look.
The site now includes micro-site hub pages for some of its key brands, enabling shoppers to browse by brand as well as by department, and there is also a simplified purchase function.
A spokesman for the retailer said: “Monthly customer focus groups and research carried out by House of Fraser have shown that shoppers are focused on shopping by brand and are keen to have a simplified checkout system. They also wanted the site to allow them to filter by product attributes.”
The move to relaunch the site follows a strong online performance at House of Fraser, including an 111% rise in online sales in the first 24 weeks of the financial year from January 2011. Click-and-collect purchases, which launched on the site in September 2010, now account for 40% of online sales.
