A convenience store in Kings Norton, Birmingham has doubled its turnover after relaunching as Lifestyle Express less than six months ago.
After retailer Mohammed Amjad Niaz struggled to increase footfall and faced dwindling sales, he decided to take drastic action and turned to Lifestyle Express to reverse his fortunes. Since he opened his doors as a Lifestyle Express in September, his average weekly turnover has more than doubled and is still rising.
“We were really struggling to get people through the doors,” said Mohammed. “It was a real challenge and I came very close to closing the store for good. No matter what we tried, it just didn’t seem to work and I was at rock bottom. I decided to give it one last push and contacted Lifestyle Express after my brother recommended them. He’d had a store with Lifestyle Express for two years and had had a really good experience. I contacted the team and they couldn’t have been more helpful.
“The team helped me to redesign the store layout with the addition of a brand-new off-licence. Shoppers have been swarming in since we’ve reopened and I’ve had great feedback from customers who love the new look and feel of the store and our new off-licence.”
Stuart Johnson, Retail Controller at Landmark Wholesale, said: “We are delighted by the success Mohammed has experienced since relaunching as Lifestyle Express. With Lifestyle Express, retailers gain much more than just a well-known and well-trusted fascia, they benefit from the invaluable knowledge and experience of a team with decades of experience in this sector.”
