As off 2 weeks ago I became the Casual Trousers Specialist at the Topshop flagship store at London’s famous Oxford Circus. At first glance it sounds quite boring… but alas, it is not!
I look at the daily/weekly figures, mess about with the VM on the shopfloor, look at new lines; and every Thursday morning I get an important visit from Head Office who come and look at the floor and my stock room and my figures. I don’t suppose I can indulge in my sales plans/targets etc but I can tell you that in my first few days I was already +48% on the week previous, by the end of that week I had smashed my plan for £11,000! Which is crazy money! Recession? What recession?! heh. The week ending Saturday 24th January my Casual Trousers dept had ended a massive +66% on plan. So I’m really happy.
SO! What does Casual Trousers (code 16) consist of?
– Jogging bottoms – Long/Short.
-Leggings – every single legging possible!
-Hareem Pants – Jersey/Cotton.
– Tapered Leg Trousers – Cotton/The more formal trouser we hold for the dept.
The leggings are what’s really driving the sales at the moment; and its not difficult to see why! We have so much choice at the moment, it must make shopping for you lot very difficult indeed!
