New Trade Web Portal for Carpet Retailers is the Star of the Show
Once again Cormar Carpets exhibited this year at the Harrogate Flooring Exhibition held from 4th to 6th September 2011, alongside many other of the carpet and flooring industry’s major suppliers.
To ensure as many carpet retailers as possible attended the show, the exhibition opened again on Sunday and a Carvery Roast’ was supplied to further attract carpet shop owners and independent carpet retailers. In fact over the three days of the show the organisers recorded an increase in the number of visitors, up to 3205.
At the show Cormar Carpets previewed their new Trade Web Portal which allows trade customers to check stock and place carpet orders online. Commenting, their Logistics Manager Craig Marshall, who has lead the project team said “The reaction from our trade customers has been fantastic. The website allows carpet retailers direct access to Cormar’s stock availability on a real time basis - 24/7. This is clearly a big benefit, given that carpet shops are more often busier at the weekends.”
Showcased at the exhibition were all three of Cormar Carpet’s summer range launches – Glendale, Primo Plus & Delight, the latest of which is Primo Delight – a heavyweight easy clean saxony in twelve heather shades, suitable for living room and bedroom carpets.
All Cormar Carpet ranges as well as the latest new ranges are available nationwide - for stockist details please visit our carpet retailers page "Carpet Shops". To receive free carpet samples please view our carpet ranges.
