Store expansion for Fonehouse
Fonehouse is going against the trend of dealers and small retailers closing stores by expanding its store estate.
The retailer will open at least six more stores throughout 2008, taking its store portfolio to 25. MD Clive Bayley said: ‘They will be in southern England. We’re not going up north again for a while. We will definitely open six, maybe more.’He added that up to 10 new stores could open next year. A 19th store is due to open on 1 December on Woolwich high street. It will take on around five members of staff. ‘It’s quite a big store,’ Bayley said.
