This outlets market is groups within living standard measures (LSM), which consists of the lower LSM and higher LSM. The lower LSM refers to people who purchase through outlets such as Town Talk and Furniture city, and the higher LSM are people who buy through Wetherlys and Osiers as their outlets. Every furniture outlet has its customer preference, meaning some offer their products and services on credit and others cash only. Referring to Wetherlys as a retails store, it offers its products on cash and that is the main reason it targets higher LSM groups.
According to Almond Steinburg (managing director of wetherlys), the company is an established outlet that is known in the industry of design for innovative quality furniture and accessories. The nature and design of their products have been
successfully obtained through carefully selected imports and exclusive furniture ranges which are developed and manufactured through local manufacturers (Roodefurn manufacturing operations) as well as through sourcing of exclusive products by the local manufacturers.
Roodefurn as the manufacturing operation firm for Wetherlys has been the best manufacturer of high quality furniture since 1979. Looking at wetherlys background in terms of its decorating side, the designs, look and feel of the company’s decorating warehouse is comparable to international standards, that’s one of the reasons it is referred to as ‘high quality selling outlet’. The merchandise has various offerings of new ranges and wetherlys is always the leading outlet that identifies the latest product lines.

Wetherlys past strategy to its achievements is still ‘standing’ and viable, with the inclusion of local, small located centres offering exposure and awareness to the decorating warehouse look and feel. Wetherlys as an individual retail outlet has reached higher heights in its market presentation of product mix and offerings to the community (public) within its niche market by utilizing numerous showcasing strategies, such as catalogues showing different product ranges.
