Fantastic visit to LSE Retail Group in Eccles, where I got to meet with Managing Director David Gutfreund and members of staff, to see their amazing operation and discuss what good businesses like theirs need to see from Government.
LSE Retail Group are based in Eccles, with over 100 employees. I heard about their business, how they process a staggering 20,000 orders a week, with sales estimated to hit £30m this year. I spoke to various members of staff across all departments, and heard about their plans to make their flagship brand ‘Iconic Lights’ the go to brand for lighting. It was exciting stuff.
This really is a success story since being established in 2010. A socially responsible business with no casual contracts, that are proud to pay their taxes on time and openly, and who want to create an environment where people want to work. Investing in its people and workforce, and looking to new ways of building their business further, at the same time as doing more for the community.
