It’s all about capturing sales that would have been missed whilst stores are closed. Landers new Shopify website, integrated with their existing TRIMS system, was launched on Friday and has seen sales rocket over the last few days. 

Landers Love the Outdoors

Based in Tralee, County Kerry, Landers Outdoor World is a family run business that offer the widest range of outdoor clothing and equipment in Ireland. They cater for all outdoor enthusiasts with a vast range of specialist clothing and equipment. Their aim is to maximise their customers enjoyment of the outdoors. 

Why Choose Shopify & TRIMS? 

Like many retailers, Landers had to close its doors following government advice. This made ecommerce more important than ever, something Landers had not ventured into before. Emma, General Manager at Landers, explained why she chose the ecommerce platform, Shopify: 

I chose Shopify mainly because its so simple and user friendlyespecially as this is my first venture into online business. From my research, I believe that it’s a robust platform and is well established. I have confidence that there won’t be any Shopify related teething problems. The final reason I chose it was down to the fact that it is scalable. We can start off with a low monthly payment and add more features or upgrade as the online store grows and develops. 

Landers were existing users of our retail system, TRIMS from Touchretail, and Emma commented on how the integration between that and their new online store went: 

‘It’s all been very simple and straightforward, even with everything that’s happened during the COVID-19 pandemic! Matt and Andy from Touchretail, and of course Jason from the IT Department, have all been on hand to help with any queries I have had. 

Online Sales That Would Have Been Missed without eCommerce

Many consumers are taking to the outdoors in what would usually be a busy period for Landers. Following the launch of their fully integrated Shopify site on Friday, they hit the ground running with strong sales over the weekend. Emma defines what this means for the business: 

Having an online store opens up many new avenues for us, as well as allowing us to continue to trade while our store remains closed. We’re looking forward to getting to grips with all the new opportunities and possibilities. Having an online store also adds an extra layer of credibility in my opinion. 

We are delighted to hear that another ecommerce integration has proved to be a success and can’t wait to see how Landers develops online.
