Ilkley’s bustling high street is the perfect spot for parents to enjoy visiting this lovely store, complete with facilities including a baby changing room and customer WC, nursing chair and children’s colouring corner. There is also a gorgeous maternity section, where pregnant customers are welcome to take their time trying on the exclusive maternity range and take advantage of the free maternity bra fitting. JoJo’s store teams are given in-depth training at their head office in Wales and really understand the needs of pregnant women and new parents.
Loyal local mail order customers of this multi-channel brand have been campaigning for a JoJo store in the area. Finally, after searching for the ideal location, JoJo is set to become a destination shop for parents and grandparents from across the area, as well as the place to go for gorgeous new baby gifts. Laura Tenison, Founder and MD of JoJo adds “Ilkley has long been on our agenda after receiving lots of emails from young families wanting us to open, but finding the right location took time.”
The good news is already gathering momentum via social networking channels. Laura explains “Our multi-channel retail strategy also helps other independent businesses in the area, even if they are of a competitive nature. Just before opening, we will email local customers and incentivise them to visit the town and our store. They are likely to spend time with neighbouring retailers and cafés as well as our new store, so it’s a win-win situation for all of us.”
JoJo was launched 24 years ago as a specialist maternity and baby store from a tiny kitchen-table business with the stock held in a shed belonging to Laura’s parents in Wales. The company has grown organically and now has over 77 stores as well as trade sales to 50 countries. Despite this phenomenal growth, JoJo continues to operate with small company values and places a huge emphasis on great quality, fantastic customer service, environmental sustainability and loyalty to all involved.
