Where did January go?!

A much crazier month than usual this year, a lot we think due to our 15% off school uniform sale, as well as the, seemingly, increased footfall due to our Farnborough and Camberley store amalgamation.

How’s it going? Well pretty good at the moment, we’re all enjoying the benefits of the whole Brenda’s team working out of the single, larger store. There are of course economies to be made due to reduced overheads etc, but the main reason has and will always be for our customers and the schools we supply uniform to. Yes unfortunately some customers will have to travel a little further, unless taking advantage of our ‘Order by 3pm and get it next day’ online service, but we truly believe, and know from many of our customer comments thus far, that we can serve you the best in our new dynamic environment.

Shoe sale

There’s not much stock left in our ‘everything must go’ footwear sale! Many customers have asked if we’re stopping selling school shoes, well the answer is no, but we will be taking a light breather!

From this June we will have in a new range of POD footwear as well as a selection of fashionable full grain leather school shoes, for boys and girls, primary and senior, which will blow our previous offering out of the water in terms of quality and durability. For further reading behind the dynamics of our footwear sales please refer to our ‘School Shoes’ blog post.

New Schools

We have a few new schools uniform added to the Brenda’s family, they are Holly Lodge, New Scotland Hill, Frogmore Juniors and Folly Hill Infants. We look forward to seeing all the new parents soon and thank the schools for putting their faith in our services.

Website Hiccup

No one’s infallable, certainly not us! We had a bit of a hiccup with our online ordering system at the end of January, which unfortunately put our website out of action for six days. This was a fault of the service provider and was affecting websites across the country which use the same platform. Thankfully their support resolved the issue and hopefully we will be running smoothly for the foreseeable future. Thank you for your patience during this frustrating period and we would like to apologise for any inconveniance.

As always we are very keen to hear feedback on our website, as well as all of our other services, just email steve@brendas.co.uk

Thanks for reading 🙂
