The British company said the new stores in Gibraltar and Malta have created over 80 new jobs within their area, and take the total number of the group’s international franchise stores to 29.

Since launching its first international store in Jordan in 2010, the brand has expanded into Bahrein, Qatar, the UAE (Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Fajairah, Sharrjah, Ali Ain, Ras Al Khaimah), Oman, Armenia, Malta and Gibraltar.

This year, the company will focus on strengthening its presence in the international markets it already operates, with plans for entry into new countries for 2019 and beyond.

Damian Hopkins, Matalan’s international director, said: “Matalan’s great product offer, harnessed with our outstanding value for the family and home, give us a unique proposition which often isn’t very well catered for in many countries. As a result our international stores are performing very well, and we are delighted to be bringing this outstanding quality and value to modern families across the globe”.

The British fashion and homeware retailer has also 217 stores across the UK, where it has built a reputation as an affordable clothing brand for the family.
