Littlewoods Ireland has today announced that it has rebranded to Very, bringing the Irish business in line with The Very Group’s lead retail brand in the UK.

As part of the rebrand, customers in Ireland can browse more than 1,800 brands online, including new labels like Dyson Supersonic, Estee Lauder Fragrances, Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith and COACH as well as Irish brands like SOSU Cosmetics and Dripping Gold Luxury Tan by SJ*, Bare by Vogue, Cocoa Brown, The Handmade Soap Company and We are Paradoxx. Very customers can now also benefit from next day delivery and free click and collect, with more brands and services coming in early 2023.
Rossa Butler, managing director for Ireland at Very, said: “We have a 40-year history serving families in Ireland as well as a passion for reinvention, having transformed from offline to online, catalogue to digital, and fashion to lifestyle retailer. Today’s announcement is the latest chapter in our story.
“We’re already the biggest multi-category digital retailer in Ireland, with more than 1,800 famous brands across home, fashion, electrical, toys and beauty. Now, as Very, I’m delighted customers can access a host of new brands and convenient services to further improve their experience of shopping with us.”
Catherine O’Toole, head of marketing for Ireland at Very, added: “Today is a really exciting next step in the evolution of our business and we have ambitious plans to grow among new and existing customers in Ireland. We will do this by continuing to offer the brands that our customers love, whilst offering a simple digital customer experience and flexible payment options.”
The Very Group is the UK and Ireland’s largest integrated digital retailer and flexible payments provider with revenues of €2.7bn and 4.8 million customers.
