About Matalan

From the day Matalan started back in 1985, to today, over 30 years on, Matalan’s mission has always stayed the same; to provide outstanding quality and value for modern families. Matalan takes time to listen, understand and evolve to fit changing modern family needs, always with an emphasis on providing the highest quality clothing and homeware for the lowest price. 12 million UK families each year trust Matalan with their family budgets - to provide the range, style, quality and value that enable them to run a happy family home. As a leading UK and International omni-channel retailer ranging from womenswear and menswear to homeware and furniture; Matalan offers something for all. As of April 2019, Matalan has an impressive 230 UK stores and 30 International franchise stores within Europe and the Middle East, supported with a rapidly growing online channel.

Matalan’s locations, late night openings, convenient parking, 'everything under one roof' offering and free click and collect service are just some of the reasons why our customers love shopping at Matalan.

Supporting communities and charities is important to Matalan, with a particular focus on NSPCC and Alder Hey Children’s Hospital Charity. As a successful family focused business, Matalan wants to make a difference to people’s lives and give something back, raising funds and awareness of the great work these charities do.

Let Girls Be Girls Campaign

Since 2011 we have been working in conjunction with Mumsnet, where this sensitive issue was raised as part of their ‘Let Girls be Girls’ campaign. We purposely ensure that our girls bras are not sold to specific ages but are sold in sizes. They have been developed following customer feedback that girls want bras to protect their modesty at this sensitive age. The bras in question are not padded so as to enhance cleavage but are a smooth moulded shape to act as a modesty and comfort layer.

We conduct thorough tests and speak to our customers for their feedback and as such, will always investigate any claims against Matalan regarding the suitability of our products. We take our commitment as a family business seriously, and Matalan is the only retailer in the UK to currently hold the Mumsnet Gold Award for being family friendly, an award we’ve held for the last three years.

Halloween Dress-Up Testing

At Matalan we are always listening to our customers and we asked parents whether they check the safety information labels before buying Halloween costumes or accessories for their children. Almost 80% of the people we asked said that they did. We wanted to let all of our customers know that we ensure all of our children's dress up products (including our Halloween dress-up range) to pass additional Flammability Testing.

This additional testing procedure means that our children's dress-up products go through rigorous testing before they make it onto our shelves and into your homes (or out and about while trick or treating!) Our message this Halloween is to have fun by staying safe and playing safely. Make sure children know the risks of candles or naked flames, including sparklers and tea lights used in pumpkins and supervise them so that they play safely.

We also recommend using LED lights instead of candles as they offer the same spooky effect and are a great safe alternative that can be used every year.


The world of fashion never stands still. And neither does Matalan. For those with energy, spirit and drive there's never been a better time to join us.
