Heal’s furniture store is steeped in history. Opening in the 19th century – as a business that brought French-style feather-filled mattresses to the masses – John Harris Heal started what is now one of Britain’s most well-known furniture stores.
Heal’s moved from its original location on Rathbone Street to Tottenham Court Road in 1818, where it still stands more than 200 years later. Against an ever-changing retail backdrop, the famous store is moving with the digital times.
The retailer’s customer and ecommerce director David Kohn tells Retail Week how the business is blending technology with a human touch to enhance the shopping experience.
