TypePublic Company
We are a leading clothing and homeware retailer, with over 200 stores across the UK and Middle East. We offer product at half the price of the high street with the same outstanding quality. It is this undeniable quality and great service that make up the core of our success. We know what is important and here at Matalan we are all about making our people happy! Back when legwarmers, big hair and even bigger shoulder pads were all the rage – we’re talking early 1980s – our founder John Hargreaves discovered the US out-of-town retail outlet. Despite their size, these huge shopping emporiums were able to offer low prices because they were situated outside expensive areas. They also negotiated directly with their suppliers, cutting out the middle man and getting cheaper costs. Hargreaves was now inspired! He decided to bring the concept home and in 1985 he opened the very first store in Preston. Like all the best ideas – Our’s was simple, but pioneering: locate out of town, keep overheads low, and pass the savings onto the customer!
