One of the largest direct mail order business in the UK. Whilst historically catalogue based, a growing tendency for customers to shop online together with the acquisitions in 2007 of Kitbag mean that sales via the Internet now make up a significant percentage of our turnover.
Express Gifts provides a personal shopping service to around 1.5 million customers each year through a combination of direct marketing and online via the 24Studio.co.uk and 24Ace.co.uk websites. Shoppers may choose to pay for their purchase within 28 days, or take advantage of a monthly credit programme. The range of products is diverse covering leisurewear, electrical, household, textile, bedding, furniture, nursery products, gifts and greeting cards. Many of these can be personalised in the division’s in-house facilities which are unmatched in UK retail. All large products are handled at a 500,000 sq ft distribution centre in Manchester, whilst an automated collation warehouse at Accrington is capable of handling over half a million items per day.
Kitbag customers pay for their purchases as they are despatched; usually by credit or debit card. The range of products is equally diverse covering toys, clothing, gadgets, furniture, wedding favours, invitations and party wares. Products are distributed from our redeveloped warehousing facility in Manchester and calls for all brands can be taken at the same facility.
For over 40 years, Webb Ivory has been working together with thousands of fundraisers in the UK – and has helped them raise literally millions of pounds for a wide range of charities and worthwhile causes. The concept is very simple. Our fundraisers simply distribute our catalogue among potential supporters, and from whatever orders they receive from their supporters, up to 25% of the order amount goes directly to the fundraiser's cause in the form of a donation.
