Our History

Read the M&Co history to get a sense of who we are, where we've been and where we're going.

We are the local fashion and lifestyle destination bringing modern families a little more joy everyday.

Often known locally as the only large retailer in town, we are proudly nestled in the heart of your high streets and have been for more than 60 years. M&Co started life as a family pawn broking shop in Clydebank in the 1950’s, originally known as Mackays. Rapid expansion saw the business become one of the largest privately-owned fashion retailers in the UK, growing to over 200 stores across the country. In 2006 we launched our online offering with the MANDCO.COM website.

From our very first products all those decades ago we have always focused on quality, never compromising for price. We search the globe to find you the very best quality products at true value-for-money prices, bringing you great fashion for all the family that you can trust.

Today M&Co serves the modern families of Britain on local high streets from the very north of Scotland to the south west coast of England with our trademark warm and welcoming customer service, plus via our own site and our recently launched mobile app. You’ll also find our products and sister brands on the likes of Next, Zalando and Amazon.
