More Information About Matalan
Matalan is a famous chain of stores in the UK, offering a range of clothing, footwear and general home ware. John Hargreaves founded the chain in 1985. The company looked to capitalise on a successful model used by chains in the USA at the time. The model involves taking advantage of lower property prices in the outskirts of towns and cities, providing large stores for customers to browse stocked full of products that can’t be purchased elsewhere. Matalan has gone on to become a real favourite with customers – and unlike a lot of retailers effected by the recession beginning in 2008, the company has thrived due to the fact that its name is synonymous with offering quality and great value for customers.
Although there are over 200 Matalan stores here in the UK, the good news is that anyone can shop with Matalan thanks to their website. So no matter where in the UK you happen to be, you can take advantage of all the great products that Matalan has to offer, without having to venture out of your front door! As well as having several hundred shops here in the UK, Matalan is eying a move into other European countries – and possibly even further afield. As well as standard Matalan stores, the UK is also home to an assortment of Matalan clearance stores – where stock from previous seasons is sold at reduced, clearance prices.
