Fred Olsen Travel Agents has opened their 19th retail store at The Royal Arcade, Worthing, the company’s second concept store after Eastbourne.
In addition to selling holidays and cruises from hundreds of different suppliers, the store gives a specialist focus to selected operators – Classic Collection Holidays, Fred Olsen Cruise Lines and Titan – with dedicated artwork and promotions in-store.
The store is managed by Kelly Virgo who is assisted by Sam Greenfield with two more staff joining later this month.
Fred Olsen Travel Agents Director of Retail, Paul Hardwick, comments:
“Worthing is the perfect location for a Fred Olsen Travel Agents shop as it has a similar demographic to the other towns and cities that we are based in and there is only one other travel agency in the town.
“Now that the shop has officially opened, we are ramping up our marketing activity and I am confident that it will achieve turnover of at least £1 million in its first year with that figure set to double in its second year.”
Hardwick revealed that Fred. Olsen Travel Agents has plans to open further branches in the coming months -including a third concept store – and is confident that they will hit their target of 25 branches in East Anglia, Dorset and Hampshire and Sussex by the end of 2025.
Customers are invited to pop along to The Royal Arcade to visit the new Fred Olsen Travel store where they can learn more about what’s on offer.
