THE BIG DISCOUNT STORE MARKS RISE OF BARGAIN BRITAIN Tuesday 26 August 2008 PDF Print The Big Discount Store has become the latest budget retailer to come to the rescue of UK consumers’ pockets with the launch of a new online shop. The launch of TheBigDiscountStore.com – which sells top designer brands such as Miss Sixty, Diesel and DKNY, with up to 80% discounts – comes amid growing financial pressures in the retail sector. The e-tailer’s extensive range of limited designer pieces start at less than half the original price and stock is continually discounted until lines have been cleared. The new online shopping site expands The Big Discount Store’s current network of 17 high street branches. It stocks men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, shoes, toys, homeware and electrics. In addition, The Big Discount Store and its online shopping site run daily discounts on high quality products which include Apple Mac computers and iPods. The Big Discount Store chain, which was founded in 1981 and is based in the North of England, will see its distribution network grow nationwide with the launch of the online shop. As UK homes face rising fuel, food and energy prices – with latest research showing that UK families are on average 15% worse off than five years ago – the budget e-tailer couldn’t have timed its launch better. Clare Thomson, The Big Discount Store’s marketing and merchandising manager, said: “Our slogan ‘Big Brands, Big Choice, Big savings’ best sums up The Big Discount Store promise – to deliver top brands at budget prices. In the current economic climate we think it’s even more important to remain loyal to our customers and continue to bring them the best bargains in Britain. Shoppers can get the catwalk look from The Big Discount Store even at a time when they don’t have much disposable income.” She said: “Our discount stores have proved to be a huge success on the high street and the launch of TheBigDiscountStore.com is part of a major expansion plan to enable UK shoppers to benefit from our heavily discounted products nationwide.” Many of the products are limited and shoppers wanting to grab the best bargains can sign up to The BigDiscountStore.com e-newsletter to make sure they are always first in the know. Delivery is quick and easy with a 30-day returns policy.
