Homewares stores using our homewares software are reporting a cracker finish to 2010. The MasterChef effect is being experienced in many homewares businesses which have configured themselves to leverage the interest in home cooking and entertaining.
We see the effect in play through homewares retailers as well as their suppliers … our software links the two, improving the speed and reliability of the supply chain, reducing the cost of stock for the retailers and providing greater certainty for suppliers.
Out customers tell us that cooking and in-home dining related items were popular Christmas gifts and are proving to be popular in the post-Christmas sales.
