Matalan is an out of town discount retailer providing great value fashion items and homewares.
They have a Membership Card scheme which is free to join but just gives you some extra benefits, like money saving offers and regular updates by mail.
The fashion in Matalan is up-to-date and offers a good selection of own brand items along with well known brands like Pringle, Wrangler, Calvin Klein, Falmer and Playtex. They have clothes for all ages, men, women and Children. Whilst the clothes are cheap they dont comprimise on Quality.
I have just bought a great value Christmas Party Outfit - Dress £20, Bag £2.50, Shoes £12 Its unbeatable value.
The Homeware range is excellent value for money and they always have the latest styles and products on offer.
It's a great place to buy Christmas Gifts and Decorations, I always manage to find beautiful and unique Christmas Decorations and Cards.
Whilst the location is out of town and not easy to get to it s well worth the extra mileage to get the bargains. Parking is great too, always plenty of spaces nearby.
Another bonus is that Matalan now accepts Love to shop Vouchers which I always save up from Cash Back Sites and work related promotions so my the end of the year I have a nice stash of vouchers so spend on all sorts of goodies from my local Matalan store.
Can't really fault the place. They sell clothes that are of a pretty decent quality at low prices.
If you're looking for menswear but don't go in for all that poofy fashion stuff that's all the rage these days, you'll have no trouble finding solid basics at Matalan. If you want to look like Russell Brand in frilly shirts, waistcoats, pink tshirts etc you're better off at topman, but for a pair of standard blue jeans, maybe a shirt for work, or a casual tshirt that's not covered in flower print, Matalan's the place to go. Well, Matalan or Next, Next dearer with no tangible difference in quality (I shop at both)
Matalan also stock have plenty of fashionable womenswear, and even stuff for my gran too. Plenty of kids clothes, though I find that baby clothes tend to vary in quality quite a bit. Believe it or not the better baby clothes tend to be from tesco and asda.
There's a homeware section that seems reasonably priced, they have very nice quilt covers at less than hal;f the price of Debenhams etc. There's also a kids toys and books section that seems to just sell rubbish to be honest. They could maybe get rid of this and maybe have a bit more shoes or something.
There's never a problem parking thanks to the huge car park, more than can be said for Debenhams, Topman or Burtons. Worth a look, don't be snobbish about the place, if you're heading to Next pop into Matalan first for a browse, it might surprise you.
