With price set to be a major focus in the months ahead for careful consumers, loyalty schemes are becoming even more important for retailers. And fashion and lifestyle retailer Matalan has just relaunched its programme.
Two new own-label womenswear brands are taking centre stage in Matalan’s just-launched ‘More to Love at Matalan’ spring ad campaign. The UK value fashion and homewares retailer has introduced ‘Et Vous’ and ‘Be Beau’.
UK fashion and lifestyle retailer Matalan has appointed a new media and planning agency to handle its £20 million publicity machine. Havas Media Group is to head its media buying and planning capabilities from April.
John Hargreaves, the founder of fashion retailer Matalan, has lost a long-running legal battle over a multimillion-pound tax bill. He must now pay capital gains tax on his sale of £231m of Matalan shares in May 2000.
Matalan has partnered with The Hut Group (THG), which will help the UK fashion and lifestyle retailer "accelerate its digital ambitions”. The tie-up begins in 2022 that will see the migration of its digital channels.
