Manchester’s Hi Group is launching its budget e-commerce platform tomorrow.

The platform will have more than 1,300 products across four key categories: household, toiletries, pet and baby care.

Head of Buying, Alanah Flannery, said: “HiHouse is about offering real value with the added convenience of online ordering and deliveries right to your door. Price is key in the current climate and for the foreseeable future. Our everyday low pricing gives us a key point of difference versus our online competitors and will speak for itself to streetwise, price conscious customers.”

Operations consist of central Manchester headquarters and 60,000 square foot distribution centre based at Trafford Park.

Hi Group MD Mukesh Karsan added: “After 15 years of trading internationally, it’s great to be setting up a consumer-facing shop window in my hometown.

“We have invested heavily in team expertise, a state of the art ecommerce platform and ordering system. We’re already looking to expand the product range and open more distribution centres around the country.”
