JT Macs Direct is a multichannel e-commerce retailer. We manufacture and distribute our own brand
of products and we also retail established brands in the sports and leisure wear market. We currently
operate two e-commerce sites and we have ambitious plans to extend our portfolio.
Located in the Peak District, the business was started by Tom McIlvenny in 2010 with the launch of JTmacs, which specialises in the retail of sportswear brands. In 2012 the company launched its first independent website, www.snuggaroo.co.uk, which turned its attention to premium leisurewear brands for the autumn/winter season, with an emphasis on products that offer warmth, comfort and style.
JT Macs Direct is run by a small team with a wealth of experience in marketing, web development and multichannel selling. We outsource storage, order handling and fulfilment to a specialist warehouse, which allows the management team to focus on developing the sales channels and sourcing new and exciting products to complement the Snuggaroo brand.
IT infrastructure and our day to day e-commerce platform are also key investment areas for the company. Over the past two years we have made an increased commitment to working with ‘Channel Advisor’, a cloud based e-commerce software company. It is our principal platform for managing our inventory of stock across multiple sales channels, and ultimately ensures that our business is managed effectively and efficiently.
