Coates Online Store

We first built an e-commerce site for Coates Butchers in 2016, offering their most popular products for delivery nationally, including a Click and Collect service for local customers.

The online product range was extended in response to the COVID pandemic in 2020, and we redesigned the shop front in September of that year.

We spent a good deal of time with the client planning and reviewing not only the design of the site but also the operating model. As we already ran the client's brochure website, we were familiar with how they worked and were able to make various suggestions as to how they could best deploy the various options offered by Cubecart, our preferred e-commerce platform.

The online store really came into its own during the COVID pandemic, as we increased the range of products on sale and moved to a model of free local delivery to help reduce queues at the client's four shops. The client even invested in a traditional butcher's bike - an environmentally-friendly way of delivering much-needed food products to shielding residents that also proved to be a great brand promoter.

What the Client says about us:
"We've used Spectrum Web Products for the last few years and always find them professional and approachable. They take time to understand our business requirements and come up with options and ideas to achieve what we are looking for. They are also proactive in looking after our website and e-commerce store and suggesting improvements. 2020 has been a very difficult year for many businesses, and Spectrum's help was invaluable in helping us to adapt quickly to the challenges we faced. They enabled us to use our website as an essential communications tool in a constantly-changing situation, and to accelerate our move to online sales."
