HOW IT ALL BEGAN
From day one we’ve been a hugely popular and innovative retailer, a pioneer in out of town shopping and a real family value led business in every sense. Many people say we actually invented Value Retailing!
Matalan started in 1985 from humble beginnings when our founder, John Hargreaves, opened a market stall in Liverpool with a vision to bring quality fashion and home products to families at a price they could afford, giving customers the great value we’re still famous for today.
We brought a fresh new idea to the market place with our out of town, retail park concept and soon Matalan became a household name. In just over 30 years we’ve grown from a market stall in the 1980’s, opening our first store in Preston in 1985, and 10 years later we had 50 Stores and a Head Office in Skelmersdale along with an impressive Warehouse and Logistics operation. Fast forward to today and we’re now one of the UK’s top Value Retail businesses with over 200 stores across the UK and Northern Ireland.
Our impressive Head Office has moved to bigger premises on a purpose-built greenfield site just outside Liverpool, this place has definitely got the WOW factor, And it’s got everything we need to take us on the next part of our journey. We’ve also taken Matalan to the high street, with locations dotted across the UK including Oxford Street! And it’s not just on home turf - we’ve also successfully taken Matalan to the Middle East and Europe and have ambitious plans to keep growing.
Our stores couldn’t function without support from our Head Office or our Warehouse and Logistics operation giving us the foundations to achieve our ambitions to be the UKs number one value retailer – in stores and online! Retail is a fast paced environment and our website, Click and Collect, e-Commerce and home delivery networks are currently evolving as fast as the technology that drives them. Coupled with the fact that Matalan has always kept in touch with what our customers want, our ranges have never gone out of style and our people have never lost touch with what makes Matalan the go-to destination for our customers.
At Matalan, one thing that has remained constant is that it’s always been about teamwork and remaining true to our roots as a Value Retailer. Our amazing and diverse people make us who we are and our Values are the driving force behind everything we do. Working here is exciting, collaborative, challenging, and above all fun! – less
