Well it's been two and a bit years since we started Marvellous Glow in Leeds, Yorkshire and we now find ourselves expanding and opening up a unit in sunny Essex.
When we first started we had around 50 letters and numbers, now we have over 200 letters and numbers, 1000 Metres of festoons, 600 Metres of fairy lights and lots of shiny, shiny disco balls and disco lighting!
So why have we opened up down South? Well as the director of this company, I started it back in 2016 with a clear vision in mind, to have our lighting all over the country at a multitude of events ranging from weddings right through to corporate. As I'm from London originally I have always had a good knowledge of the city and its surrounding counties, meaning when we first started out I wanted to test the waters in terms of supplying lighting to various clients in London as well as the North of England. Now with a pretty much fully booked 2018 Summer diary in the north it's time for us to give the south of England some more of our attention.
So far in in the past two years we have surprised even ourselves at the level of clients and events we have been a part of down South! To name drop a few we've worked with Youtube, Thomas Cook, Esquire, Strictly Come Dancing and coming up we'll be supplying The National Soap Awards with light up letters! Crazy!!
The North and more specifically, Leeds, will always be the home of Marvellous Glow and it's where our warehouse holding the majority of our stock is, but we will also have a huge amount of stock in Essex now as well.
What does this mean then? Well it means we can be more competitive with our prices in the South and offer potential clients better rates. It also means we'll be able to cover more areas in London and the surrounding counties without spreading ourselves too thinly. Often we have had to turn down events down south due to cost and distance. Most importantly we'll be able to serve our customers better and give an even betters service all round.
We're excited for our future both up North and down South so watch this space.
