The Background

The launch of multi-faceted project that involved establishing an ambitious store offering, boutique accommodation and an online presence for both facets of the business.

The Challenge

The launch of multi-faceted project that involved establishing an ambitious store offering, boutique accommodation and an online presence for both facets of the business.

The shop was still at a renovation stage when involvement in the project commenced. The focus was a need to emphasize the boutique nature of the accommodation and promote inspiring home offerings sourced from around the world.

The Solution

Taping into the existing intrigue about the new store by wrapping the windows with brown paper and promoting the social channels.

This was mimicked on social channels quickly establish followers, and opening dialogue with future customers. Excitement was then maintained by drip feeding products and peaks into what was going on inside.

Results

Cotswold Grey quickly earned the tag ‘favourite shop’ by customers who became evangelists for the brand on social media. The accommodation soon established 82% occupancy, then beyond, gaining 5 Star reviews and outstanding review quotations.

The brand is now firmly established in the Cotswolds, and across the UK in an online capacity, as a destination to shop for the unusual. The accommodation has become synonymous with a special experience for a getaway or event in the Cotswolds.
