Courts reports increased sales this year
FURNITURE AND APPLIANCE retail giant Courts (Barbados) is reporting an increase in sales in 2015.
Managing director of Unicomer (Barbados) Limited Trisha Tannis said the increase was promising.
“We’re seeing mid-single digit growth which is extremely encouraging considering the economy has not been projected to increase significantly, if at all,” she said.
Tannis attributed the company’s growth to a special technology installed to measure in store activity.
“We’ve implemented a fairly sophisticated traffic counting technology that allows us to know when people are coming into the store and that allows us to actually serve them better as far as deployment of our human resources [staff] at that particular point in time.”
Tannis was speaking at a presentation for the Courts’ Dare to Dream Scholarship Programme. Fifty students of the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus were awarded.
Forty-nine students within the Faculty of Social Sciences and one from the Law Faculty were awarded with the scholarships valued at $3 000 each. (TG)
