Matalan is getting ready to open its first store on London’s Oxford Street tomorrow.
The 15,000 sq ft unit at number 149/151 will employ 144 staff and stock the value retailer’s full womenswear, menswear and kidswear collections.
The opening represents a major change in focus for the retailer which predominantly has stores on shopping parks. It has been keen to break onto the high street for some time.
The location between the Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street London Underground stations will also be close to the new Crossrail station when it opens in 2018, helping to further boost footfall.
