Hardy Amies selects Eurostop retail management systems Thursday 6 September 2007 PDF Print Press Release 6 September 2007 Premier designer and clothing retailer opens three new nationwide UK outlets with Eurostop systems Hardy Amies, the renowned directional menswear tailor and last remaining English Haute Couture house based in Savile Row, London, has invested in Eurostop’s retail management solution to enable it to manage, track and analyse sales across its three newly opened stores. The company is launching new outlets in Edinburgh and Chester for its Hardy Amies London range of men’s formal and smart casual clothing. Together with a new womenswear shop in London the company will be using Eurostop’s systems at their Head Office, Warehouse and EPOS within the shops. The company expects the new systems to enable it to better monitor sales and manage stock flows, increasing profitability. Following an evaluation of competitive products, the store chose Eurostop’s solution for its proven retail credentials, as well as its ability to manage all aspects of stock and sales and to integrate with other back office applications. The stores are using WinPOS at till point to capture sales, while information is sent daily through to Eurostop’s WinRMIS, the head office system. All sales are automatically registered and tracked by WinRMIS, giving the head office an instant picture of best selling lines and stock. The company intends to use reports on sales and purchases to identify geographical preferences and trends, enabling it to improve and manage stock control and buying. Helen Worthington, Group Financial Controller at Hardy Amies, London said: “Hardy Amies is going through a very exciting period of growth based on the success of all our ranges. “We wanted a retail management system that was easy to use but enables us to be efficient in analysing sales and monitoring stock movements. Eurostop’s systems have all of the functionality that we need, yet are easy to use.” Phillip Moylan, Sales and Marketing Manager at Eurostop commented, “I am delighted to have Hardy Amies as a customer. They are a luxury brand and require a proven retail solution to meet their expansion plans.

He brought the ‘New Look’ over from France after the war, which was feminine, fitted style and in 1948 he started to dress the then Princess Elizabeth. It was the first brand to bring designer men’s suits to the high street through a range sold in Hepworths in the early 60s. He also made the suits for the England football team in 1966, the Olympic Squad in 1970 and the Beatles and he designed the costumes for the film 2001: A Space Odyssey in 1968. In 2001 Hardy Amies was acquired by Hardy Amies PLC and Sir Hardy officially retired in 2002 and died one year later.
