The Sheffield-based licensed giftware specialist, GB eye Ltd, is to cut the ribbon on the new expansion of its warehouse facilities, having taken on a new unit in response to increased online sales amid a consumer buying trend shift over lockdown.
GB eye is opening the additional warehouse in order to efficiently serve its online fulfilment process following a surge in online retailing over the course of the year. The warehouse will look to cater to the processing and packaging of Amazon and GBPosters.com consumer orders.
Its main warehouse will continue to serve GB eye’s retail customer orders.
The new facility is situated directly opposite its main premises in Sheffield, allowing for ease of access and to ensure a streamlined process that will benefit both their consumer and retail customers with the expedition of the processing times.
Joanne Copley-Dunn, commercial director at GB eye, said: “Consumer demand throughout lockdown has demonstrated the relevancy of our product lines to today’s shopper. Our extensive collection of licences makes us a one-stop shop for consumers.
“Seeing continued growth of our online sales channels, our aim is to separate the process so that we can better cater for our online channels whilst maintaining a first class service for our retail customers who continue to support us and purchase products from us in ever-increasing quantities, particularly over the last few months.”
The new facility is set to open in October in the build-up to what proves to be a busy Q4 for the company as consumer demands skyrocket in the build-up to Christmas gifting.
