“When we first heard of Linsar a few years ago my initial reaction was ‘not another obscure brand that will cost more in time and effort getting the things fixed than we make in profit’… I couldn’t have been more wrong. Since we started selling Linsar three years ago we haven’t looked back” says Phil Sheldon, shop manager at H & H Electronics in Biggleswade, Herts.
They did particularly well with them during the recent digital switchover. Continues Phil: “Demand for small screen televisions locally was huge and none of the big players sell a good selection of small sets. We have traditionally just sold Panasonic TVs, but as they have all but turned their back on smaller TVs, we needed an alternative, and that is where Linsar came in”.
Phil is particularly impressed with the Linsar range. Available with and without DVD, the ability to record, rewind and pause live TV onto a USB stick, the ‘big button’ remote controls – ideal for older customers – plus ‘the icing on the cake’, a five-year warranty.
He continues: “All our staff find selling Linsar sets a breeze. They offer a great mix of functionality for the price and the warranty gives the brand real credibility. We also find that dealing with a small manufacturer so much easier. On the rare occasion we have a problem we know we can just get on the phone and it will be resolved immediately.”
And the bottom line? “I can now honestly say that there would be a huge hole in our business now if it were not for Linsar,” concludes Phil.
