Issue #53: Bricks versus Clicks
By Ross Chapman • Issue #53 • View online
Bricks versus Clicks. In the same week that the 309 year old Fortnum and Mason announce 12% growth in sales this December, 105 year old Ben Hayward Cycles of Cambridge announce that they’re closing down (and sadly Meesterknecht in Amsterdam is closing too!). 😵
Success can be determined by the power of brand, but also in strategy. Fortnum’s growth can be attributed by increased online sales and a successful pop-up shop strategy. 
Be part of the change.
