Changing With Time
Littlewoods home shopping celebrates 45th year of delivering products across UK. It has successfully been in the retail home shopping business for over 84 years’. Things have changed drastically with the advent of technology. Prior to 1971, Littlewoods agents carried enormously huge product catalogues and moved from house to house to make their sales. The products were handed to the customers personally at their door step.
Not only does the online retail shopping portal offer a large assortment of products, they also have the best discounts to offer. Slowly, the telephone orders are dying out.
