Vender of the Week: Daisy Park


Who: Daisy Park

Where: South Molton, United Kingdom

Why we love Daisy Park:

Self-proclaimed as shabby chic, Daisy Park is a haven for vintage and design lovers. Selling everything from patch quilted throws to miniature trophy deer heads (relax, they’re made out of recycled MDF), their incredible store never ceases to surprise. No doubt, we’ll be heavily campaigning for some of their amazing cushions to find a home at our new office!

Why Daisy Park loves their POS?

“We were really pleased to implement Vend as it blends seamlessly with our e-commerce website and store, and allows us to work across all platforms with ease. We are still learning all of the functionality with Vend, but have found it intuitive to use and when we have needed to call on support, the response has been quick, friendly, responsive and informative.”

What words of wisdom do you have for new retailers?

“It sounds really obvious, but always keep the customer in mind when considering what changes to make with your business.  Make it as effortless as possible for them to shop with you.  We’ve all been through pretty rough times with the recession and we have found that the main point of difference to us has always been to provide great customer service; it really does differentiate you from the competition.”

What have learnt along the way with Vend (that you kind of wish you’d known from the beginning)?

“Well, never underestimate the time you think it will take to get the products onto it.  Switching from a conventional EPoS system to a cloud based system required a different thought process, once you get that, I think you’ve cracked it.  Overall though, we wish Vend was around years ago, it would have made life a lot easier! Since we’ve started using Vend we’ve noticed that the development is continual and we look forward to growing with Vend in the future.” -Emma Paisey, owner of Daisy Park UK.
