Telephone Number for Littlewoods

Littlewoods began life as a shopping catalogue that used to process their orders by post. For more details call Littlewoods contact number 0844 561 1858.

Littlewoods, owned by the Moore family came into being in the 1970’s at which time it was only possible to order from them by post. In 1981 however Littlewoods expanded its operation to include a new call centre so that their customers could place orders by phone. At the height of its success there were some four thousand people employed by Littlewoods. With the arrival of Internet shopping, however, telephone ordering became a thing of the past and the call for phone lines for ordering slowly declined. Then high street stores began to close and in 1996 the first of them, one in the West Midlands at Merry Hil,l became the first one to close. For more details of the history, call Littlewoods contact number 0844 561 1858.

New Development in Enterprise Zones tempted many retailers from high street stores as financial incentives were offered in the Enterprise Zone areas. The company also operated the Littlewoods Pools concern that offered betting enthusiasts the chance to bet on football game results. That part of the business was sold in 2000 to Rodime. The shopping and catalogue business was sold in 2002 for the sum of seven hundred and fifty million pounds. In 2004 the brand Littlewoods was merged with Kays Catalogues and the result was the creation of the Shop Direct Group. The merging of these two brands led to some of the distribution centres for both brands being scrapped. The main centres for distribution for Kays in Leeds and Worcester were closed and also the main operation in Liverpool for Littlewoods was cut back at the same time.

In the spring of 2005 it was announced that one hundred and twenty six stores would be closing. Many of the stores that were previously owned by Littlewoods were subsequently bought by budget store Primark, while a few stores were sold to Argos that is the only competitor to the Littlewoods Index Company. However in the event Index itself failed at the point that the sale of the street chain was going through. This was as a result of falling trade at the time from up and coming new chains such as Matalan and TK Maxx. For more information call Littlewoods contact number 0844 561 1858.
