Laithwaite's sees online sales boom

Gloucester based wine merchant Laithwaite's Wine has revealed a surge in popularity for home deliveries so far in 2020, driven by work-from-home orders.

Around 31.5 million bottles of Laithwaite's Wine have been delivered by courier firm Yodel so far in 2020 - a substantial increase on the year before.

Sam Holden, chief commercial officer at Yodel said: "With consumers up and down the country continuing to work remotely, online retail is consistently demonstrating its convenience across all sectors.

"We've seen our partnership flourish with Laithwaite's Wine over the past 20 years which has given us a solid foundation to build on, and we're excited to play a part in the next stage of their success story."

Philippa Strub, Managing Director at Laithwaite's Wine, commented: "I've been incredibly proud of the reaction from our teams this year to continue providing for our loyal customers.

"Our customer service ratings have been outstanding during a difficult period and our family of winemakers around the world have been thankful to our customers for helping them stay afloat."
