Card Factory reaches 900th store milestone

Greeting cards retailer Card Factory will open its 900th UK store tomorrow.

The landmark opening comes after a sustained period of expansion for the retailer which has opened around 50 new stores every year for the past 10 years.

The new shop in Epping Forest Shopping Park will be opened with a special guest appearance from popular character Chase from Paw Patrol, who will be cutting the ribbon and meeting with customers. Card Factory will be handing out Christmas goody bags with the first 100 purchases at the store.

The retailer opened its first store in Wakefield in 1997 and now employs around 6,500 people. It also hires around 6,000 seasonal staff each year.

Karen Hubbard, Card Factory chief executive, said: “We are thrilled to have reached this fantastic milestone of 900 stores, which demonstrates the rapid growth of Card Factory since opening our first store in Wakefield 20 years ago. We are confident that our value for money offering will go down well in the Epping Forest area.

“Our store roll-out programme will continue at pace, as we look to bring the Card Factory proposition to even more customers in the years ahead.”
