“Ready Steady Store is an ideal place for starting up a new business as it is a recognisable place for customers and the store in Doncaster is well situated as it is on a busy road with a lot of footfall with a shopping area right next door!”
Local family run business TMA Workwear supply their customers with a range of high quality workwear, safety equipment and PPE – all from their showroom in our Doncaster self storage facility.
After working in retail for years, owner Claire set up TMA Workwear to focus on providing customers with high quality workwear to suit every need and budget. Their goal is to provide safe and wearable products that are built to last. However, with her experience, Claire understood that, in order to be able to properly sell their products, they needed to set up shop in an affordable place that allowed them to keep their vast range of stock secure while also being able to serve customers.
For TMA Workwear, our Doncaster self storage units provided the perfect location for them to operate from. They first moved into a 125 sq ft unit in July 2020, but after realising that they needed more space, took advantage of our flexible storage offerings, upgrading to a 275 sq ft unit just a month later.
They use their Ready Steady Store unit both as a showroom and as a click and collect point for customers – which often results in an extra sale, as these online customers are able to browse the range in person. Similarly, as TMA Workwear also offer an embroidery service, being able to showcase their products means customers can come and look at what’s on offer and discuss what they need in more detail.
The benefits of the unit have been huge for the business:
“The Doncaster store is like a small community as a lot of the business customers chat to each other and see if they can help each other with the different services they provide. Staff are friendly and helpful and go above and beyond, always sending potential customers my way! I can relax knowing my items are safe and secure.”
The business has also taken full advantage of our range of added extras – including our Receipt and Dispatch service which helps businesses to focus on what’s important by signing for deliveries and keeping items safe until a courier arrives for pick up.
Claire has praised the flexibility of the 24-hour access, which allows our customers to use our facilities at a time that’s convenient for them, along with the safety and security of the facility, even when she’s not there:
“The staff at Doncaster Ready Steady Store always make sure customers know where I am or how to get in touch with me. The Doncaster store has quite a few trade customers, so the staff always make sure to send them our way for any workwear they may need!”
