Share this content

Swetenhams announce the launch of a brand new mailing list from the well-known popular department chain, Allders – comprising the names of over 350,000 0-24 month customers who hold a store card.

The file offers a new data source compiled of mid to upmarket consumers, who have purchased a range of goods from Fashion Wear, Home Accessories and furnishings, Electrical Appliances, Gifts, to name but a few.

The Allders Store Card List provides advertisers with access to a wealth of lifestyle and life stage groups. Profiling information suggests that a significant percentage of the file are more affluent than the national average, 28% of the file fall under the Mosaic group High Income Families, 42% have a household income of £25k+, 91% are homeowners and 25% are retired. These customers value the level of customer service and affiliate with the brand name offered by Allders, hence the high level of repeat purchase.

Combined with the factors of an affluent upmarket profile, a comprehensive range of selections and an ever increasing volume of credit scored names offering a respectable rollout volume, this file is ideal for Mail Order, Charities, Financial services, Automotive, Publishing, Travel and leisure, Utilities and Computing direct mail campaigns.

Jeanette Barlow, List Manager at Swetenhams, comments: "this unique 350,000 strong store card list is available for the first time on a list rental basis. There are no other retail files on the market that offer the same level of selectivity that this list offers. These customers have been recruited from both within the store and more significantly via the Allders website, which suggests that a high proportion of these customers own a PC and actively use the Internet. Additionally, because all records have been Credit Scored in order for the applicant to be accepted for a Store Card, they are, as a result, very clean."
