The Penny Lane Computers concept was founded in 1995, in answer to the market need for a reliable computer shop. The shop opened amidst strong competition from other computer stores situated nearby. After the continued success of our first store, we opened a second store and by 2010 we had opened a further 4 successful stores. So much was the success of these that our head office was moved to larger premises and our central distribution warehouse was created to supply our stores with better quality and priced products from a single source.

In 2012 Penny Lane Computers decided to pursue the franchise route as its best option for ensuring personal involvement in every store and achieving its national growth objective. By keeping track with the many phases and changes in the personal computer market, Penny lane Computers today boasts a national footprint of 7, stores making it one of the largest privately owned computer groups in the UK. Penny Lane Computers prides itself on its value for money offering and outstanding support and service to the ever-growing market of personal computer and IT users.

In addition to computer hardware and software, we offer inks, consoles & gaming, trade & exchange, home call-outs, movies, networking, repairs, upgrades, new & refurbished laptops & computers and total home & business solutions. In its advertising campaigns Penny Lane Computers focuses on the end user as its target market. The potential target market served by Penny Lane Computers is vast as it includes multiple services and products for both home and business users.

Although Penny Lane Computers functions on the principles of destination shopping, great care and circumspection are exercised in identifying suitable premises. Premises with relatively low rentals in residential areas or supermarket locations with ample parking and visibility are favoured.

A typical Penny Lane Computers retail shop will employ two to five staff members. Penny Lane Computers head office employs a team of knowledgeable staff members who lend their wealth of experience and expertise to assisting franchisees in running their businesses.

Penny Lane Computers provides franchisees with full training in respect of its products and services, including technical aspects as well as marketing techniques, management and technical skills. The initial training is conducted over 14 days at the Penny Lane Computers head office.

To ensure that franchisees receive the benefit of bulk buying prices, PLC Central acquires stock on behalf of franchisees from international suppliers. Stock items are then distributed to franchisees from the centralised warehouse. PLC Central also supplies there own brand of computer units for distribution by franchisees. In an industry that lends itself primarily to destination shopping, consistent advertising is a must. The company consistently engages in advertising promotions that highlights the company’s value for money offering and raises brand awareness.
