With over 1300 stores across the world, WHSmith is a brand easily recognisable to many.
The core WHSmith brand that you find on your local high street has been developed over time into the successful Travel format stores that you find in travel locations both in the UK and across the globe.
The growth of the internet has seen the WHSmith brand move online with whsmith.co.uk, we’ve also developed a concept for WHSmith within big department stores such as Harrods and Selfridges and most recently we’ve extended the WHSmith brand further, with our franchise initiative WHSmith Local.
WHSmith Local is a way of us extending our customer proposition to smaller independent retailers, who currently operate a Newsagent/Post Office. This new concept is a brilliant opportunity for those independent retailers to work with a recognised brand. It helps improve their sales and, more importantly margin. We have now successfully opened over 75 stores as ‘Franchise Partnerships’ and have more in the pipeline.
