About Us

Our Mission = Big Brands Low Price Direct to you

At MandM we’re proud to be different.

We want to give you the biggest brands at the lowest prices you'll find.

How do we do it?

The answer is simple - we buy directly from brands, licensees and suppliers.

Just like you, we're always hunting for a bargain.

Our buyers are always looking for opportunities to buy quality brands and on-trend Clothing, Footwear & Accessories. Over time we've built long-term relationships with many companies and currently stock over 150 brands, ranging from big household names to up-and-coming labels.

Still wondering how our prices are so low? Find out more in our MandM: How are we so cheap? blog post.

Our Story

Our journey began in 1987 by selling end of line sports products directly to customers in the UK. Now more than 30 years on, we're one of Europe's leading online off-price retailers with over 3 million active customers. We also have numerous dedicated local market websites across Europe and deliver to 25+ countries worldwide.

In 2014 MandM Ltd was purchased by Danish fashion group Bestseller. Bestseller is owned and run by Anders Holch Povlsen, after inheriting the business from his parents. Anders has grown Bestseller into one of the largest companies in the fashion retail industry.

We've previously had some of our products appear on Steph's Packed Lunch, we sponsored The Simpsons on Channel 4 and we make an effort to support worthy causes like St Michael's Hospice.

Our success is down to our commitment and passion for seeking out the biggest Fashion, Sport and Outdoor brands and giving them to you at the lowest prices all year round.

Unlike other online retailers, we don't do discount codes or promotions - just your favourite brands all with up to 65% less than RRP.

Trustpilot is a digital review platform that focuses on inspiring trust & collaboration, whilst also helping consumers shop with confidence. Since its founding in 2007, Trustpilot now has over 120 million consumer reviews.

At MandM, we have been collecting reviews and currently hold a strong rating on Trustpilot - based on over 50,000 reviews
