UK Retailers take advantage of global sourcing.

11th Feb 2019

Family-owned Ellis Brigham has a chain of independent retail outlets selling ski, hiking and climbing equipment along with clothing and footwear for all seasons.

EB turned to Quantum 4 to produce a brand new retail system that would form the basis of a refresh to their entire estate and for less than half of the cost of UK production. The new scheme was rolled out to all 25 sites for less than 50% of their flagship store cost and offered even greater savings on what it replaced.

The process left them with an estate of uniform equipment that could attract investment from their suppliers. 

“Quantum designed and delivered without compromise it was as close to the design intent as humanly possible. Put simply we couldn't be happier and we wouldn't change a thing!” MD – Robert Brigham

In addition, it allowed them to standardize their point of sale and ensure clear visual merchandising guidelines with retail displays that would last the next 7/10 years through easy to update graphics to keep the stores are looking fresh.


Q4s experience of working for the likes of Wallmart and Tesco allowed them to ensure commercials where clear from the beginning and that the scheme gave them both the look and feel they desired while meeting the budget.

Quantum’s engineering approach was the key to unlocking these savings and in tandem with Quantum 4’s worldwide sourcing capability they helped a family run business overhaul their whole estate in 24 months.
