Clare Haines, the founder and director of multi-million pound online company Lingerie Outlet Store, has been invited to judge this year’s eBay Business Awards. The Lingerie Outlet Store is run from Swindon by Clare and her business partner Melissa Burton, and the duo have grown the business 2,000 per cent since 2014 and now employ 32 staff.
“We have been and will continue to work extremely hard raising our profile and growing our business. We have now secured new premises and expect to move in by October,” Clare said. The Lingerie Outlet Store has also been working on a new website to be launched next week.

All winners will also get a visit to eBay’s UK HQ to meet the team, time with the Vice President of the UK business, an Anchor Shop, access to eBay Concierge customer service and free support from an eBay listing optimisation company for 1 calendar year.
