The Royal York Banner

Received from Richard Mansell, General Manager – September 2016

As part of a significant relaunch and repositioning program within the City of York, following a multi-million pound refurbishment project, we strategically partnered with  She Loves York to assist us in achieving a number of communication and marketing goals, as well as bringing our new local brands to new local customers. Tricia and the team have always shown a progressive, dynamic and engaging approach that has been instrumental in the success of re-establishing The Royal York with York.

Partnering with She Loves York has brought us dozens of new customers into the business on a monthly basis.

We would recommend She Loves York to all local businesses, without question

We have had a flurry of She Loves York members taking advantage of the 14 day trial offer lately, and even as I wrote this email I had a phone call for another to start this afternoon, which is great!

I have worked with Tricia for a number of years and have found She Loves York to be a fantastic way of interacting with the public and other partners.
Trisha is always so enthusiastic and helpful when discussing new ideas to promote our business and services and is always happy to offer her support with any questions I may have.
Being a partner of She Loves York has had a fantastic effect on our business & continues to help build the awareness of our business within the local and wider community.

Alice Burton, Manager at Hobbs, York 2012

I heard about She Loves York through a fellow retail manager not long after I had become manager during the early Summer of 2011.

She spoke very passionately about the positive impact She Loves York had had on her business and her plans for working with Tricia in the future. I found the concept fresh and exciting and I could already see opportunities to build my business. I began to have more questions, most pertinently though was, why would I want to offer a discount to people who could, based on the website’s profile customer, be a Hobbs shopper already?

Meeting Tricia was inspiring – she has a infectious positivity about her along with bundles of energy whilst always behaving professionally. She was honest when answering my questions and I certainly left that meeting with no doubt that this was someone, and something I wanted Hobbs to be involved with and indeed benefit from.

Like many retailers, I then had to convince my Area Manager, our Marketing Manager and finally our Retail Director that membership would be hugely beneficial to the York store in raising its profile, and most importantly, would see a financial return quickly!

Their concern, like mine, was that the members of She Loves York would already be Hobbs shoppers so why affect our margin?

But despite this concern, Hobbs became a partner of She Loves York in the Autumn of 2011 – if a little cautiously and quite honestly, to take advantage of the marketing opportunities and play down the discount.

Despite Tricia’s best efforts, we spent the first six months very quietly being a partner despite recouping our joining fee within a few months. We had seen a couple of cards come through our tills but nothing too significant. Tricia was keen for us to take full advantage of the website by actively helping to increase the membership by encouraging our customers to join – but we didn’t listen.

 At the start of 2012, I made a resolution to try things Tricia’s way – we became a loud and proud partner!

Needless to say, Tricia was right!!! We’ve had a phenomenal reaction since we turned up to the party. We’ve taken in excess of £10K solely from She Loves York related activities between January and May 2012. This success has come from taking a more active role with Tricia and with She Loves York events, utilising the website to promote our brand, selling the benefits of being a member to our own customers, and from our own enthusiasm in store.

Our concern about margin was put to rest when we quickly realised that our customers were now just buying more and spending more regularly with us, and all because of that little pink and black card. Many of our best customers are now proud members of She Loves York and thanking us for introducing them to it whilst they enjoy all the other benefits too as well as experiencing 10% off their favourite brand every time they visit us.

At Hobbs, we consider ourselves a lifestyle brand, able to dress our ladies from top to toe for any day of their week, whatever they may have in their diary, and She Loves York means that they can continue to compliment their lifestyle with cocktails at the Living Room or a curry at the Indian Lounge etc all with terrific offers.

All my team at Hobbs York use their own cards regularly and so can speak with experience and continue to offer the excellent customer service we’re renowned for, beyond our own front door – how fabulous.

So, thank you Tricia, you have done exactly as you promised, I only wish we hadn’t been so cautious in the beginning.

We look forward to a long and lucrative future with Tricia and She Loves York.

For me the fashion show proved to be an excellent opportunity for people who were there to find out about my business.  Since then I have had new people come to my workshops and book again for future workshops.
