Matalan is a one stop shop for on-trend, affordable fashion. Ladies, men's and children's clothes, and homeware.
Matalan is a leading UK clothing and homeware retailer offering quality fashion and homeware at up to half the equivalent high street price.
The Matalan story starts in the 1970's, when the store's founder, John Hargreaves, discovered the concept of out of town US retailers who offered food and clothing at low prices. John decided to bring the retail concept to the UK, so in 1985 the first Matalan store opened in Preston.
Since then Matalan has grown significantly and by 1995 there were 50 stores across the UK. In 1997, the head office was relocated from Preston to Skelmersdale along with a new distribution centre. Matalan now trades from 5 million square feet in over 200 stores.
By being located in out of town locations that are easy to get to, Matalan can offer customers unbeatable value for money. With an average of 30,000 sq ft of space in each store, there is a huge range of ladies, men's and children's wear as well as homeware to choose from.
