What is Tiger doing right?

At SnapShop we regularly review our retailers to check the information we hold is still correct.  I’m currently looking at Tiger.  Ever heard of it?  No, neither had I other than as a name on our database.  But Tiger is quietly making waves. 

Tiger is a value variety goods retailer which originated in Denmark and was brought to the UK in 2005 by Philip Bier.  He is the local partner, sharing the business with Zebra A/S in Copenhagen.

With 8 UK stores at present, Tiger is continuing its store roll-out programme in Essex and elsewhere after securing a £350,000 Enterprise Finance Guarantee loan in 2010 from banking partner Lloyds TSB Commercial.  It is currently looking to acquire three further sites in London. “Our plan is to have 18 stores by the end of 2011 and 40 by the end of 2012,” says Bier, who even includes a page on his website devoted to his store requirements.

Seems there is a space in the UK high street for the kind of retailer you’d never wax lyrical about but which serves some basic needs.  Where did Woolworths go wrong?
