Northwest Sharpeners offer a sharpening service for blades, tool and domestic & commercial kitchen equipment, and after having expanded operations, they are now thrilled to announce the launch of their brand new e-commerce website so that they are able to provide their top-class service nationally, as well as on a local basis.

Northwest Sharpeners, formerly known as ‘Clipper Smart’ began the business of sharpening clipper blades and scissors back in 2004. However, due to an ever-increasing demand for the sharpening of domestic and commercial blades, they soon realised the need to offer their services further than just Wigan and local surrounding areas.

To do this, Gaynor Ashdown – Owner of Northwest Sharpeners – decided a modern, e-commerce website that would allow customers to place orders and print postage labels would be the ideal solution. After reviewing a serious of various quotes from different agencies, Gaynor chose Reflex Creative to design and build her company’s new website.

Reflex Creative are a full service marketing agency based in Wigan, and the services they offer include but are not limited to: website design, graphic design, SEO, PPC and social media management.

Ryan Coe, Senior Graphic Designer at Reflex Creative said “it was a pleasure working with Gaynor and hearing about her background and how her business has grown. We wanted to produce the very best website to suit the business’ needs and increasing demand, and of course the design had to match the quality of the service!”

After an initial design meeting and the approval of initial mock-ups, Reflex Creative proceeded to build the website that would allow Northwest Sharpeners to go national.

In order to provide the ideal solution for Gaynor, it was vital to ensure that all needs were taken into consideration: Royal Mail integration was used to allow customers to print postage labels; the site was built on a user-friendly content management system to allow the owner to make changes as and when they saw fit; WooCommerce functionality was also added to allow customers to purchase various services; a 100% secure payment gateway was installed to ensure safe transactions could take place through the website.

This, alongside a fresh new brand, has now allowed Northwest Sharpeners to service the entire UK, allowing the business to grow.

Gaynor Ashdown of Northwest Sharpeners Ltd said that "after an initial meeting with Reflex, we felt confident that we had found the best team for the job. Our website far exceeded anything we could have ever imagined"
