Record breaking year for Rovers Retail

Rovers Retail has ensured the club ends 2017 on a high after posting record-breaking figures for the year!

Sales at the Rovers Retail store and online at www.hullkr.co.uk/shop have set a new benchmark for the club with profit finishing the year over double on 2016!

It’s also even higher than two years ago when a trip to Wembley for the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup Final swelled the club’s coffers and represents a massive shift in the success of the retail department in recent years, with this season’s sales figures almost double those from four years ago.

Craig Franklin, the club’s Head of Marketing and Retail, said: “Working with our partners XBlades, staff and supporters, we’re delighted to post record breaking results for the department. It’s the culmination of lots of hard work which started with the Big Listen survey two years ago and then the appointment of a new kit supplier in XBlades.

“I’d like to place on record my thanks to our Retail Manager Laura George and all the staff for their hard work and commitment over the last 12 months. The job is far from done yet and we are planning another big year to ensure the department finally begins to realise its full potential.

“Once again we’ll be listening to fans via a new Big Listen survey in early 2018 and work is already underway to make sure we are ready for next Christmas! We are also rolling out the mystery shopper programme again. Fans who are planning a visit are invited to download or print the form and email their thoughts back to the club.”

2017’s results come on the back of the club launching the new 2018 home and away shirts earlier than ever before as well as working on new off-field ranges such as the Lion Collection to go alongside regular drops of training wear sponsored by Wilberforce College.

The club also has some significant announcements regarding the retail department on the new horizon with supporters advised to keep an eye on club communication channels for more information in due course.
