Helping our customers make informed decisions
Universal Textiles Launches Click & Collect Outlet Store!
Leicester City Mayor Sir Peter Soulsby joined the Universal Textiles team at our Oswin Road, Braunstone warehouse last month to help launch our first outlet store, complete with its own Click & Collect service.
The outlet store not only offers a variety of clearance products from brands like Result and Fruit of the Loom at bargain prices but also allows customers to buy online and collect their purchases in person within 24 hours of their order being placed.
Customers can also reserve their items online and pay in store upon collection at a time that suits them best, with customers being notified by text and email when their item is ready. With a spacious changing room also available, customers can try items on in-store, and only pay when they’re completely satisfied with their order.
Whilst prices remain the same as those online, customers who click and collect save money as well as time by avoiding postage costs, with ample on-site customer parking making it easy to collect your order at your leisure.
Once the ribbon had been cut, Sir Peter was given a private tour of the new store, and got a chance to try out the company’s state of the art touch-screen ordering system, which allows customers to browse the full product range and place an order in-store.
Speaking about the experience Sir Peter said: “It is encouraging to see a textile and distribution company like Universal Textiles that has been in Leicester for three generations diversifying and growing. I was particularly impressed by the personal enthusiasm of Managing Director Ravi Karia and that of his staff, and their commitment to growing the business further.”
The opening of the outlet store follows a string of recent expansions for Universal Textiles, hot on the heels of our move from Syston to our more central Braunstone location in May, with the business requiring a larger warehouse to cope with an increased volume of orders.
With an ever-expanding workforce and a growing sales presence reaching throughout Europe, America and Japan, we are now excited to offer local people the same great value products that customers from around the world enjoy online.Get Out live streaming film online
Managing Director Ravi Karia said: “It was fantastic to have the Sir Peter with us and for him to show his support for the launch of our outlet store. Universal Textiles is a local business that’s just grown and grown, and this has easily been our biggest year yet.”
“Our click and collect service means that we can provide customers with a flexible shopping experience that works with them in mind. We’ve got 12,000 lines and 100,000 products on offer, so there really is something for everyone, and we hope that local people come down to see what we have on offer.”
