Who you need to know Owner Lewis Tweddell
Now in its fourth year, each one has been a financial successful at Lewis Yates. Store owner Lewis Tweddell puts this down to first-class customer service.
Last year the store opened every day apart from Christmas Day in December to service the Christmas rush, and upped its social media activity, driving footfall and sales, and introduced a made-to-measure tailoring service. Lapped up by existing customers, it has also introduced a new older demographic to the store.
2013 will see Lewis Yates launch its new fully integrated ecommerce store online. Tweddell says: “It’s our first big step into the online shopping market and will allow us to offer our products to a much wider customer base without taking the financial risk of opening a second store.”
