Wikipedia Meaning and Definition on 'Instore'
...instore was a chain of retail stores in the United Kingdom selling a range of products and principally concentrating on value home-ware items.
The company is based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire but ironically does not have a store in the town: the nearest is 5 miles (8.0 km) away at Ravensthorpe Shopping Park, Dewsbury. The company has over 5,000 employees.
Instore plc, formerly Brown & Jackson plc, is the parent company of "...instore", operating 340 stores across the UK also including Poundstretcher- and Ponden Mill-branded sites.
The ...instore name was created as part of a major rebranding of the existing, value-led Poundstretcher business that had been trading since 1981. In September 2002 the company concluded a programme of rebranding half its Poundstretcher stores as "...instore" in an attempt to reposition the business as a more mid-market retailer. Trading subsidiaries What Everyone Wants, Your More Stores and the Famous Brunswick Shoe Warehouse were also disposed of at this time. In July 2005 the company adopted the name of Instore plc, replacing the previous Brown & Jackson plc name.[See more about Instore at Dictionary 3.0 Encyclopedia]
