Teddington formal wear shop announces 60% off* sale as it prepares to "go mobile"

After ten years on Waldegrave Road, the owners of Jo McLaren Formal Wear have announced plans to go mobile from the new year. And, in connection with the announcement, the shop will be holding a sale with up to 60% off formal wear until 21 December.
The new look retailer promises to hold pop events in the area in hotels and pubs, and has even designed a new app so customers can try on outfits virtually at their own convenience. The results can even be shared via email.
From 2014, customers will be able to call or email the company which will then arrive on their doorsteps at home or at work with a range of sample sizes to try on and fabrics to choose from.
Business owner Jo McLaren explained: “Andy and I live in Teddington and we’ve enjoyed having a high street shop but the world of retail is changing and we’re excited to be changing with it. Since I set up the business ten years ago, we’ve prided ourselves on offering a highly personalised service; taking time with each customer to help them make the best selection for their needs. For example, we’re often lending fabric samples to grooms so they can match colours with bridesmaids’ outfits or taking detailed measurements so people can get the best fit ‘off the peg’.
“By ‘going mobile’ we’re taking that personal service one step further. Without the commitment of the shop keeping us rooted to Teddington, we can be much more flexible. As well as doing bespoke home visits, we will also be hosting pop-up shops in pubs and hotels around the borough so that customers and wedding groups can come to us at a convenient time and enjoy shopping in a relaxed environment. I’m sure they’ll enjoy a pint or two as well!”

* Until Saturday 21st December, the Jo McLaren shop at 154-156 Waldegrave Road,
Teddington, is hosting a "Going Mobile Sale" which includes suits, shoes, kilts, shirts and accessories at up to 60% off.
