Happy Little Soles sees big business growth in 2016
Happy Little Soles, owned by Kate Harrington, has been trading since 2010 and has matured quickly as a specialist online national retailer for children’s barefoot shoes. Kate explains, “Barefoot shoes allow the foot to work in the way that nature intended, enabling a child’s foot to behave, develop and grow naturally”.
From humble beginnings storing barefoot shoes from floor to ceiling in Kate’s house, the team needed to ensure its operations were fit to manage the growth. The first stage was to develop an exceptional e-commerce presence to meet the company’s ambitious aspirations. Taking stock of the business changes, Kate appointed Eight Wire to create a fresh, effective new website design.
Kate said, ‘the Eight Wire team captured the Happy Little Soles culture beautifully, focusing on the target-customer throughout the entire website project which has resulted in increased turnover, lower administration costs and builds on the existing loyalty of our lovely fans’.
Kate continues to have grand visions for the business. The organisation is utilising logistics solutions offered by 3B International in Redruth to ensure stock levels meet demand and have employed a new member of the team to work on the area they value most – customer service.
