Merry Christmas from Price & Buckland!
Tuesday 19th December 2017
It has been a very productive year here at Price & Buckland, especially with the continued growth in our online 'direct to parents' service. At the beginning of the year we invested in a new telephone system which has proved to be a huge success in handling the 100,000 parents that have signed up to our e-commerce service. Over the coming months we will be launching new, state-of-the-art e-commerce software which will further improve the service we offer. We have made improvements to both our blazer and knitwear fabrics, which have been well received, and the recent introduction of our Price & Buckland trousers and skirts, with adjustable waists is a further sign of our continued product development.
PB Parents Online
2018 will see the launch of our refreshed e-commerce platform, PB Parents Online. Our new-look platform will reflect all the fantastic features of our online shopping tool, but will also host a whole bunch of great new features. We're holding our cards close to our chest whilst we finalise development, but watch this space!
Throughout 2017 we have been committed to developing our current product ranges to continue to provide the high quality garments you can expect from Price & Buckland. Over the year we have made improvements to several of our ranges such as trousers, skirts, knitwear and blazers. We have expanded our skirts range to now include:
- Two box pleat skirt (front & back) Fully pleated skirt Straight skirt with back box pleat Three box pleat skirt (front & back)
We have also introduced three new styles of trousers including, single pleat and flat front styles, as well as modifying our boy trousers to have a slimmer leg.
Finally, we have also started to use a new, improved low pill yarn for all of our knitwear, which gives a softer feel and improves the overall durability. we have also updated the styling of our knitwear too. We have replaced the outdated turn-back cuff with a straight cuff, and we have made the bottom rib less cumbersome.
All of our garments are manufactured in our own, purpose built factory in India, where we have total control of quality and design.
Our 2018 brochures are now available, packed full of our entire schoolwear, sportswear and staffwear ranges.
