The first FatFace charity shop

FatFace Foundation Charity Shop
FatFace Foundation Charity Shop in Havant

Tengo worked with FatFace to help them to venture in to charity retail for the very first time. Here’s what Will Crumbie, Finance Director of FatFace, had to say about how things are going:

“We opened our first FatFace foundation charity shop in Havant back in October 2018 and it took off much quicker and much better than we could have anticipated. The sales we made in our first week surpassed what we expected to take in our first year. The Tengo EPoS system certainly helped with this because it was so easy to use and enabled us to serve a large number of customers very quickly.

When the shop first opened, we had different staff from FatFace head office volunteering at the shop every day. Without such an easy to use system this would have been difficult to manage but everyone picked up the Tengo system with little or no training at all. We went on to raise over £250,000 in profit in our first year which will make a real difference to our partner charities.

The Tengo team were on hand to help us get everything set up and offer any advice we needed to get going and it has been great working with them.”
