Terrys Fabrics provides one of the premier online retailers of soft furnishings online in the UK. We have the biggest range of curtain fabric sold by the metre, plus everything else related to window coverings from Ready Made Curtains, Curtain Poles/ Tracks, Blinds plus many other home interior related products like Bedding and Rugs.
What makes our business unique is that we are able to provide a top quality user experience and first class customer service as you would expect from much larger stores and marketplaces – but we can combine this with in-depth product knowledge that many of our competitors cannot. We believe that our customers really appreciate this.
How did it start? Terrys Fabrics was already an established business of 40 years so it was a natural if not a completely simple progression to online commerce. Our customers have shown that there is a strong demand for both products and expertise related to improving home interiors.
We have grown quickly over the lifespan of the store both in terms of store size, traffic, business and also the fulfilment operation behind this, so we needed a CMS that was flexible and open so that we could shape it to fit our particular customers’ needs. And X-Cart was the smart choice for us to make.
The big advantage of X-Cart as the platform is that it is very comprehensive and configurable out of the box, but there is also a vibrant community of 3rd party developers who add a great deal of choice to extend the functionality of your store.
Using X-Cart has definitely been integral to the success of Terrys Fabrics. For us we have not found a function that we could not accommodate either through a third party modification or a code customization. X-Cart works for us perfectly and we look forward to a lasting partnership and continued growth for our business over time.
