Who you'll work with

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.
