It is with great pride that we have reached our 80th Anniversary. My late grandfather Frank Monkhouse established the company in 1938 in Cheadle Hulme, Cheshire and since then we have consistently grown, now retailing in the West Midlands and the North of England. Now as part of the Banner Group we have unrivalled expertise in the full supply chain making sure we offer best value and resource to our customers and schools.
The business has developed from its retail roots in Cheadle Hulme to now being the country’s leading multi-channel schoolwear retailer. We now operate from 18 sites and supply uniforms to over 450 schools across Cheshire, Cumbria, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside, Staffordshire, Yorkshire and West Midlands. We operate retail stores, 24/7 on-line, on campus school shops, in-school sell events, wholesale direct to school and mail order. We have built a reputation for high quality and all year round service. The underlying ethos and values of the business are to constantly drive to maintain value for money for our customers, to monitor our supply chain so products are ethically sourced and factories are accredited and to offer the leading multi-channel solution.
