Cotton On Group pins growth on new categories, mega-stores

“We need to respond faster to our customer and we want to make sure we are elevating our customer focus.”

The shift in strategy follow Ms McLean’s appointment to the newly created role of chief retail officer.

Ms McLean will provide a direct link from COG’s retail stores to the board, ensuring greater emphasis on customer experience at board level, and will be responsible for rolling out the mega-store strategy, which is aimed at giving customers access to leading COG brands under one roof.

“This role will just streamline how we work and will deliver a lot of efficiencies across our business,” she said. “It all comes back to our customers – anyone in this market at the moment needs to be agile.”

A cousin of Cotton On Group founder Nigel Austin, and sister of COG’s head of communications, Marshal McLean, Ms McLean joined COG in 1991 as a general manager before leaving in 1999 to spend five years at Giordano as product manager and eight years as retail general manager at Rip Curl.

She returned to the family-owned, Geelong-based company in 2013 and ran Cotton On KIDS for five years before being appointed chief retail officer earlier this month.

Like most of its Australian-based rivals, COG found 2017 a particularly challenging year.

After five years of 20 per cent annual sales growth, underpinned by high single-digit comparable store growth, COG’s growth slowed last year, with revenues rising from $1.8 billion in 2016 to almost $1.9 billion in 2017, falling slightly short of the board’s $2 billion target.

“It was one of our most challenging years but we were still very pleased with our performance,” Ms McLean said. “We’re still seeing growth, just not that 20 per cent we saw [for many years].”

“We’re still delivering positive comps, but it’s definitely different in every brand.

“There’s a shift in the way people are spending. Traffic is holding but the mix is changing and it becomes more about entertainment.

“Hence this new role. The customer still has money in their purse, they’re going to spend it somewhere and we just need to make sure we get our share.”

COG has 742 stores in Australia and just over 1500 in 19 countries. Its strongest, most profitable growth is coming from mega-stores, which now account for more than a third of global sales and 60 per cent of sales in Australia.

After opening its first mega-store in October 2015, COG now has 212 mega-stores, including 90 in Australia, 42 in South Africa, 22 in Malaysia and 21 in New Zealand. The mega-stores typically range in size from 800 to 2000 square metres, with the Mall of Africa store in South Africa reaching 3500 square metres.

Mega-store customers tend to shop across all four or five brands, staying longer in store and spending more (an average $60 ) than customers in stand-alone stores (average spend $31).

“There will be an increasing number of mega-stores across the store footprint worldwide – when leases are up we’ll close stand-alone stores in favour of mega stores,” Ms McLean said.

“We can flex our assortment across all our brands and give customers an engaging experience because we have the space to do it and the flexibility to do it.”

COG is also tweaking its e-commerce operations in response to changing spending habits, with customers tending to shop online by category rather than by brand.

COG has seven e-commerce sites in seven countries and wants to lift online sales from 5 per cent of total sales to 11 per cent by improving fulfilment, adding personalisation and gifting across all brands, replatforming sites and launching AfterPay and click and collect options.

“Our commerce business is definitely an area we want to continue to drive,” Ms McLean said.

COG is investing $40 million building a 35,000-square-metre automated distribution and fulfilment centre at Avalon Airport in partnership with Linfox. The centre, which opens pre-Christmas 2018, will enable COG to deliver online orders faster and better compete with Amazon, which is building a 24,000-square-metre fulfilment centre in Melbourne’s south-east.

“Customers are demanding next day and sometimes same-day delivery. We have to be able to be competitive against Amazon and the like,” Ms McLean said.

As a fully vertically integrated retailer known for its competitive prices, COG is unfazed by Amazon’s arrival.

“We play beside Amazon today in America and a lot of other markets,” said Ms McLean. “It’s not anything we’re too concerned about.”

“If we keep focus on our customer and what they’re looking for and don’t enter into a price war … we should be fine.”

90,000 Sockets in the kitchen. Layout, rules and tips for placement

To ensure that the creation of culinary masterpieces is not hampered by technical problems in the kitchen, it is important to correctly plan the location of all household appliances and sockets for their connection. Take your time and draw a detailed layout of all the cabinets and elements of the kitchen set. Where will it be more convenient for the hostess to knead the dough, and where is it easy to reach the kettle’s power button? The operation of each appliance in your kitchen will directly depend on the availability of outlets.

Of course, first of all we think about the aesthetic component. It is important for every housewife that the appearance of the sockets does not catch the eye, does not attract too much attention to itself, but harmonizes favorably with the overall design of the kitchen. Indeed, in addition to those outlets that can be hidden behind the lower cabinets of the kitchen unit, there are those that will remain in plain sight.

When planning the location of household appliances, in addition to the visual appeal of the kitchen as a whole, it is imperative to remember about safety standards and rules.We will begin with this important component of the repair.

Tips and guidelines for installing sockets in the kitchen

  • The sockets should be located at a distance of more than two centimeters from the plinth. The most convenient way to place the sockets is when they are installed 10 – 20 cm above the kitchen countertop;
  • If there are small children in the house, it will not be superfluous to equip the sockets with special plastic plugs;
  • Household appliances that are powered from the mains should be placed no further than one meter from the outlet;
  • Do not allow drops of water or hot steam to get onto the mains.

Popular types of sockets for the kitchen

According to the type of installation, all sockets are divided into angular, retractable, hidden (also called recessed), and overhead.

  • Corner sockets. This option is the most convenient and rational for the kitchen space. Sockets are most often installed under hanging cabinets. This method is used to place both single sockets and modular ones, consisting of several at once. The installation of such outlets is no different from the simplest installation.
  • Hidden. This innovative solution to the problem of rational use of space and arrangement of kitchen equipment. These sockets can be installed vertically and horizontally, placed in a cabinet or even mounted in a worktop. Often, such a solution is turned into life already at the stage of manufacturing a kitchen set. The aesthetic appearance of such outlets is guaranteed to you. Outside, such sockets are protected with aluminum covers. Inside such a system, several sockets can be located at once, as well as connectors for connecting gadgets.
  • Pull-out systems. If you are tired of the endless tangle of extension cables in your kitchen, then this is the choice for you. Pull-out systems can be hidden in a worktop or in a drawer of a kitchen set, thus hiding them from dust and moisture. In addition, they easily “hide” when they are no longer needed.
  • Overhead. The most familiar to us sockets. In modern realities, this type of installation of sockets is used less and less, since it is more suitable for open wiring.

Number of sockets in the kitchen

The answer to this question is to understand how many appliances you plan to put in your kitchen. If over time you would like to supplement your arsenal with a multicooker, then you also need to make an outlet for it in advance. Indeed, after the completion of the repair work, it will be impossible to make another power source. In order not to make a mistake in the calculations, experts recommend planning the number of outlets with a margin.

Let’s consider an approximate calculation of the number of sockets on for the basic example .

In the lower level, sockets for all large household appliances are mounted (power sources need to be installed about 30 cm from the floor level). Such equipment includes: refrigerator, dishwasher, oven, washing machine (if you plan to put it in the kitchen), waste shredder.

Medium level (directly above or in the worktop) sockets for basic equipment are located. These are electric kettle, microwave oven, induction hob, TV, food processor and read appliances. In order to understand exactly where the sockets will be located, imagine how you put water into the kettle, will it be convenient to send the sliced ​​food to the food processor, and how many steps will you have to take with a plate in your hands to the microwave oven? At the top level, it is important not to forget to provide an outlet for the hood and lighting system.

Scheme of placing sockets in the kitchen

In addition, in order to correctly take into account the location and number of required outlets, it is important to remember about the peculiarities of connecting household appliances and the power consumption of electricity.Here are some rough general power ratings.

Frequent mistakes when placing sockets in the kitchen

  1. Contact their attention to the total power of all kitchen electrical equipment connected to the network. This value should not exceed the maximum permissible level. The kettle and microwave cannot be plugged into the same socket at the same time. The power of the equipment is always indicated in their technical data sheets. For electrical equipment with high power (large-sized equipment), it would be more correct to lay separate lines with a correctly selected section, copper and using protective automatics. In order not to be mistaken with the capacities, glue small leaflets with explanations on each machine in your electrical panel.
  2. Equipment with a metal case must be grounded. The outlets supplying power to this equipment must be connected via a residual current device (RCD). It is highly undesirable to install sockets directly behind the built-in electrical equipment. This can lead to undesirable consequences. The power source for must be located no closer than 20 cm. Above the working surface, the sockets must be mounted, placing 10-15 cm vertically upward. It is important to remember that drops of water, grease and any other moisture should not get to the power sources. Never install outlets directly above a sink or near water pipes.
  3. Always carefully study the information that the manufacturer indicates on his products: what is the maximum power permissible for their safe and correct use.

Works when placing sockets in the kitchen

First, you need to draw up a general layout of the sockets. This is the most fundamental point for the further implementation of the plan.Indeed, the convenience of the hostess and the safety of operation of all equipment located in the kitchen depend on the accuracy and literacy of creating a scheme.

When the scheme is carefully thought out and ready, the specialists can start the installation. First of all, they must mark the walls of the location of future outlets, according to the output of the cables from the groove. After that, round recesses are made in the wall and special plastic “glasses” (socket boxes) are installed in them. Power cables are connected to the future outlet, cover plates are mounted. At the end of the work, it is important to carry out a performance test.

Following all the above rules, you can not only provide for the convenience of working in your kitchen, but also make this process as efficient as possible, saving time for communicating with your family.

90,000 Newborn’s Room: Design Tips

In anticipation of the baby, expectant mothers sometimes encounter nesting syndrome. Women suddenly have a burst of energy and there is a desire to equip an apartment for the birth of a baby. How to properly organize the space for the baby, provide for all the little things and details? Interior designers will help us figure this out.

Requirements for the premises

The main requirement for a newborn’s room is safety.

“Fasten cabinets, shelves and chests of drawers to the wall, close the corners on tables and pedestals with special protective corners. Put plugs on sockets in the child’s access area, and restraints on pull-out drawers. Discard protruding handles and shelves, ”advises Anna Piligrimova, interior designer .

In the process of preparing a room, designers advise to carry out a general cleaning: wash the windows, remove unnecessary things, clean textiles and furniture. When choosing textiles, it is better to give preference to natural materials, limit synthetics, pile carpets and heavy curtains.

Room climate

The right indoor climate influences your baby’s sleep and forms healthy habits from birth.

“The recommended temperature in the children’s room is from 18 to 22 degrees. Regular ventilation, air purifiers, air conditioners or supply and exhaust ventilation will help you maintain the desired temperature, as well as access oxygen.Optimum humidity of 40-60% is achieved thanks to air humidifiers and battery-operated regulators in the winter season, ”comments Olga Denisova, interior designer .


Correctly chosen lighting of the newborn’s room will help to establish the daily routine and will contribute to the harmonious development of the child.

Designer Anastasia Petrova recommends using soft diffused light in a newborn’s room: sconces, ceiling lamps, bedside lamps. Basic requirements for luminaires: hidden wiring, impact-resistant shades, even light. It is better to foresee various lighting scenarios at the stage of planning the room and bring the sockets to the lamps. Overhead lighting is suitable for games, a sconce for a fairy tale before going to bed, a night light with diffused light is useful at night.

On the windows in the nursery, designers advise to provide blackout blackout curtains. They will allow you to control the level of darkness in the room, regardless of the length of daylight hours.

Anna Pilgrim’s collage


Everything should always be at hand in the children’s room. It is very important that not only the baby but also the parents feel comfortable. To do this, you need to provide the following filling of the room:

1. Baby cot

When choosing a bed, designer Elvina Dvornikova draws attention to the availability of:

  • bottom height adjustments;
  • protective boards with a distance between the slats of 6-7 cm;
  • clips and stoppers on wheels;
  • mattress filled with algae, coconut fibers, horsehair, with a non-slip top cover.

The size of the bed for newborns is 70-120 cm. You can use “growing” transformer beds with dimensions of 130-160 cm, where the child can sleep up to 7-9 years.

2. A chest of drawers with a changing table – a place where baby’s things will be kept, as well as hygiene items.

3. Place for feeding, for example a chair and side table next to where you can put a cup of tea, put your phone.

4. Storage space for toys: open and closed systems.Some of the toys should be freely available for the baby; low open racks are suitable for this.

5. Sleeping place for an adult, for example, a small sofa, if you need to sleep next to your child.

When choosing furniture for a nursery, you should avoid structures with sharp corners and pay attention to materials.

“One of the best options is furniture made of natural solid wood, but it is expensive, – comments Elvina Dvornikova , – Chipboard is a material with a wide range of structures, shades, easy to clean, resistant to temperature and scratches. I advise you to choose children’s furniture from E1 class laminated chipboard with closed edges. Children’s furniture made of MDF is environmentally friendly and safe, with a high degree of protection against moisture, with a rich palette of colors. ”

Color selection

The best solution would be a neutral, warm, calm gamut, a child of the first years of life needs a space aimed at learning about the world, for the development of neural connections. Vibrant prints and colors will distract, add anxiety. There is a huge selection of wallpapers for kids’ rooms in muted colors.Try to choose non-contrasting options and avoid complex plots, large characters – all this can scare the baby, especially in the dark.

Anastasia Petrova draws attention to how color affects the psyche of children and adults:

  • pink softens aggression – an excellent option for both development and interaction with the environment;
  • yellow invigorates, it is better to use it in a minimal amount in the area of ​​games and sports;
  • Orange is energetic, but does not tire the eyes;
  • blue, blue tones are relaxing;
  • Red helps to focus, but it is better to use it in a spot, in the form of small images or objects;
  • gray – neutral;
  • white is best used in combination with an accent bright wall;
  • green stimulates mental activity, calms the nervous system and does not tire the eyes.

It is better to divide colors according to tones: warm – in the area of ​​active pastime, for example, textiles, pieces of furniture, dimensional toys, and cold – in the recreation area.

Anna Pilgrim’s collage

Room zoning

The children’s room is multifunctional. It should include a certain list of zones necessary for a comfortable pastime:

  • recreation area;
  • games zone;
  • training zone;
  • sports area.

It is better to place the study area closer to the window, the bed – in an impassable place, away from the window, doors and heaters. For games and sports, you need to leave as much space as possible.

“The children’s room should be transformable from the moment the baby is born, – says interior designer Victoria Shvab , – The task of the designer is to think over different scenarios for arranging furniture for several years ahead. For example, the location of the crib for a newborn determines the location of the future bed for an older child. A wardrobe can replace the changing chest of drawers. ”

Anna Piligrimova advises to provide a secret corner for the baby in the room: a house or an alcove. These shelters develop the imagination and give the child a sense of security.


In the decoration of a room for a newborn, it is better to use the following materials:

1. Wallpaper – paper, non-woven, fiberglass, acrylic. The glue must be selected on an organic basis;

2.Paints – water-based, acrylic and water-dispersed;

3. Parquet, high strength laminate, eco-friendly marmoleum, cork and vinyl tiles;

4. Plasterboard or whitewash is suitable for the ceiling;

Anastasia Petrova suggests dividing the walls of the children’s room with different finishes horizontally. For example, use paint 1.3 meters below the floor and wallpaper above. This way, painted or torn wallpaper can be avoided. For the baby, you can pre-foresee a magnetic coating or a coating for drawing with chalk on the wall section.


Any jewelry must be environmentally friendly and safe for the child. Children love tactility, therefore, according to Anna Pilgrimova , it is important to use different textures: soft fabrics, wood, lint-free carpets. By touching and studying different materials, the child deeper learns the world around him.

“Eco-style is gaining popularity now, – says Victoria Schwab , – I think that it is very suitable for children’s rooms. For decoration, you can use wooden photo frames, plants and natural textiles: wool, cotton, linen. “

“The study of the world in a baby begins with his room and objects in it, so it is very important to take into account every detail when choosing furniture and decor to make the room cozy and safe,” notes Elvina Dvornikova .

Why do we need sockets with shutters and a cover

Why do we need sockets with shutters and a cover

What protect sockets with shutters

The range of all current series of wiring products includes several types of sockets, including sockets with protective shutters. This type of outlet is also sometimes referred to as childproof outlet. What is it, whom and from what are they able to protect?

The front panel of a grounded power outlet has 2 holes that are equally spaced to the left and right of the center of the outlet. The plug pins enter these holes when the electrical appliance is connected. If you look inside these holes, then at the outlet, which does not have protective shutters, you can see brass contacts, wrapping around the pins of the plug.At the outlet with safety shutters, the brass contacts cannot be seen, because the holes are closed with plastic plugs. These are the protective shutters of the outlet. The two shutters can only be pulled back at the same time. When the plug of an electrical appliance is connected to the outlet, the 2 metal pins of the plug press on the 2 plastic shutters of the outlet at the same time. They move away, the pins of the plug are connected to the contacts of the socket, the electrical device is connected to the electrical circuit. If you try to push only 1 protective plastic shutter, for example, with a screwdriver, pencil or knitting needle, the shutters do not move away, the socket contacts remain closed.When only one of the protective shutters is pressed, its petal does not rotate around its own axis, bends back and stumbles upon the plastic panel of the socket mechanism. In most cases, this design prevents access to the socket contacts.

Design of sockets with shutters

For most manufacturers, the shutters are a moving plastic part that is fixed in the center and has 2 platforms on the sides, beveled in different directions.When the rounded pins of the plug are simultaneously pressed against the shutters, they turn clockwise or counterclockwise, thus providing access to the electrical contacts of the socket. When the plug is removed from the socket, the protective shutters return to their original position, because a spring is built into the front panel of the socket. Schneider electric sockets with shutters were created in such a way that the force when inserting the plug into an outlet with safety shutters is almost the same as that of unprotected sockets.

Use of outlets with protective curtains

Outlets with protective curtains are installed in apartments and other residential premises where families with small children live, in nurseries, kindergartens, schools and medical institutions. In addition to sockets with protective curtains, specialized children’s plastic plugs are also used, which block the outlet openings in the children’s room. The advantage of using sockets with protective shutters in comparison with plugs from children is that these curtains block the outlet openings on the machine.You can just forget about it. The plug must be inserted every time you use the socket yourself. Most of the designs of children’s plugs allow their use in sockets with protective curtains, in the end, safety is not superfluous.

Sockets with a cover

These sockets have a lot of advantages:
• Convenience of maintenance. The cover protects the functional part of the socket from contamination.
• Security. The cover protects the outlet from accidental splashes and dust.
• Beautiful appearance. Sockets with a cover, which are installed in a conspicuous place, look much better than ordinary sockets.

Where to install sockets with a cover

In the living room, bedroom or study. Sockets with covers will not spoil the appearance of the room.
• In the children’s room. Such an outlet will not interest the child.
