Whats good about the new website is that all items are together (eg this is Lighting). Https://www.sandersondesigngroup.com/shop/lighting/amelia-lamps/?code=ZLIC392645
What I dont like (compared to penguin for example) is WGB dont take you to the exact page for that product on the retailers websites.
Penguin do: eg:

You click this link and with any of the retailers mentioned you go directly to the RIGHT PAGE FOR THAT PRODUCT!!!


So in effect WGB are doing a lot of hard work and then LOSING THE SALE because they show the customer the wrong page with another manufacturers products.

They need to IMPROVE this otherwise they will lose sales.

There is no good excuse for this - its just LAZY! and losing WGB MONEY!

HF14: Middle Class office workers are already working from home.
The lockdown worry is shops. WGB is more dependant on shops like John Lewis staying open (and factories) so lockdown BAD for WGB but work from home GOOD for WGB....

I dont think a lockdown2 will do WGB good.... However that being said, it might be (I'm no expert) that WGB dont sell much in the WINTER - perhaps most sales occur in the SPRING..

NOV is going to be a dodgy month - that is my gut feeling.
DEC could be really good - with re-organisation and potential vaccine.

Yes StudentInvestor13 and the reason they say for this improvement is an event that fits the description: "a rising tide floats all boats"....

From their statement:
"We are now half way through our important autumn selling season and believe we are benefitting from home related spending attributable to the worldwide lockdowns which took place earlier in the year."

They are a quality wallpaper and fabrics seller.
Middle Class office workers, working from home, are doing up their houses.

What is excellent about colefax is right at the VERY TOP of their web site is a button saying "ORDER SAMPLES".....

WGB does not appear to have that button!
In wgb's recent trading update wgb said a GREAT DEAL about samples:

Innovation, in part as a result of Covid-19, led us to launch our first digital pattern book in July 2020 for Harlequin's new children's collection, the Book of Little Treasures. Sales of the collection in the first weeks following launch have been much higher than we would usually expect and we have been sending out far more samples from the collection than with a traditional pattern book launch. The cost of sending out these samples is much lower than the costs associated with traditional pattern books and there is also valuable feedback from the sampling process in that we can see which of the designs and colourways are the most popular; if we create a pattern book at a later date, we will benefit from knowing which designs to focus on.

The experience of digitally launching the Book of Little Treasures and Queen Square has convinced us that all collection launches in future will have a four week digital pre-launch so we can benefit from initial feedback.

Thanks - its just that segment of market is doing well so I'm guessing WGB doing well with this 5%-. So perhaps its up to 5% now .
Three of WGBs sites have a Sofa as the cover picture:

WGB corporate site itself and

Then the fabrics themselves are sold to cover furniture so I guess
that also counts as part of the "furniture" business.

Do we sell any sofa fabrics to furniture manufacturers?

One would think WGB could get a sales rep knocking on doors and
saying "your sofas would look good covered in William Morris".....

bookbroker: You ask: Does X sell Y so where is the link? So where is the link.

Its basic set theory (it is a form of maths ). Before I go on I must warn you I am hopeless with maths. But here goes:

X is Home Depot
Y is WGB
Z is DIY

If X is part of Z and Y also is either part of Z (union) or Y has some Z in it (intersection) then if X increases because Z increases then its quite possible (but not certain) that Y will increase too (due to rise in Z).

"A rising Tide raises all boats"...

I take your other point that you are of the view that WGB is not in the DIY sector. However I know for 100% certainty it is however I cannot say what percentage is DIY and what percentage is professional market. I can say that WGB have been on DIY programs (Sarah Beeny - I mentioned earlier) and DIY magazines (House and Garden) and that their head of sales was employed by B&Q for about 12 years. I would think about 50% of WGB is DIY (I think that is pretty fair estimate)
That is their paint, fabrics, wallpaper and furniture sales.

DIY in the USA (paints, wallpaper, fabrics, etc etc)....

Home Depot is now trading significantly higher than it did pre-covid:
(same story with Lowe's

The USA is WGBs second biggest market after UK so its good to see that
DIY is booming in USA as well as UK and EU.

None of this means WGB is booming - alas, but there is a saying "a rising tide raises all boats" - so its quite possible that WGB is doing well too.

PPG (WGBs paint partner) is having "BETTER THAN EXPECTED" results:
Https://investor.ppg.com/news/news-details/2020/PPG-Provides-July-Sales-Update-and-Increases-Third-Quarter-2020-Sales-Estimates/default.aspx (It specifically mentions that this increased demand is coming from Europe ).. The missing link here is WGB producing a "William Morris paint" - I can imagine this brand could take a huge slice of the middle class paint market but other WGB brands do have paints and their sales could be increasing (see PPG results). PPG became WGBs paint partner in 2017.
(PPGs share price is more or less back to its January price. WGB was in trading range 80-90 in January so still 50-60% off January price)

The WGB story.
(see chart)

In 2017 the share was trading at 200p-250p range (its now 57p).

At end of 2017 it plummeted to 100p-140p range (still 100% higher than now).

The reason for the fall to 100-140 was falling demand in the UK (recession)
and flooding back in 2015 (from shares magazine see link below)
If you look at shares magazine it was talking about recovery to about 270p by 2019.

So how did we end up with a share price of 57p and almost a NETNET stock?

No idea... However I do know there is currently a DIY boom and I expect
WGB to have made some money from this boom (unless others know otherwise).

This DIY boom will last for a long time as people will be working from home for yonks (some will never go back) and then we have a stamp duty holiday until end of March 2021.

Say I'm being overly optimistic and £1 is not achievable this year and StudentInvestors 90p is also unachievable I think we should at least get to 70-80p range this year.
I mean there is a DIY boom.

Oh I see what you mean s34icknote: you think WGB has a big percentage of its turnover doing up offices and hotels. I did not know that. Does anyone have a percentage of what amount WGB turnover is in offices/hotels sector compared to the house market?

I assumed (perhaps wrongly) that 90%+ of WGB turnover was for domestic (home) use and not work.... Have I got that wrong?
