Lucid is a retail consultancy, working for suppliers and retailers across a broad range of categories.
Who we are
I founded Lucid Direct in 2001, with a desire to make a difference for whoever we worked with – be that in terms of sales or profitability whilst making the journey enjoyable and fun.
We have stuck to those core principles throughout, whilst constantly looking at ways of refining and developing the journey. Whilst working across a variety of companies across UK, Europe, Asia & Australasia, we have sought to embrace the cultural changes and share those with clients.
Our business continues to evolve with retailers and suppliers alike, from a range of industries – newspapers and magazines, to toys to drinks, but our core ethos remains the same and our ways of working focused on making a difference.
