LinkedIn likes Skinnydip London
LinkedIn has included Skinnydip London in its 25 most sought after startups in the UK listicle.
The venture nabbed the number five spot, with LinkedIn observing that its “quirky phone cases and snazzy bags — fans include Kylie Jenner and Miley Cyrus — have proved a rare positive story for British retail. Brothers James and Richard Gold and their schoolfriend Lewis Blitz launched the brand in 2011 and now have 15 Skinnydip stores and are in over 250 concessions worldwide.”
Click & Collect
Last month, RTIH reported that the brand had partnered with HubBox, enabling customers to collect their online purchases from over 4,000 local Collect Points, as well as from its standalone stores.
It is rolling out an end-to-end Click & Collect solution installed at checkout. HubBox also provides the software used to manage in-store collections. “With the customer at the heart of everything we do here at Skinnydip, we wanted to offer a service that enables them to be able to collect their order with ease,” said James Gold.
“Using a Click & Collect service that gives the customer several collection options is most definitely a step in the right direction for us. As a business we want our customers to have the best possible experience both online and in-store, and we feel like working with HubBox really takes us that step closer.”
