Here are five interesting facts that you probably didn't know about Peacocks:
Peacocks primarily offer clothing ranges for women, men, and kids as well as shoes and accessories. Women are offered a wider range of products and they can expect to see all sizes and styles of lingerie, nightwear, jeans, dresses, blouses and skirts among many others.
Offering a good compromise between quality and value, Peacocks consistently adds new items to its range of clothing such as seasonal wear like summer and winter. Women's jumpers, jeans, shoes and dresses, in particular, are the most popular products at Peacocks while their value for money range of lingerie and nightwear are also among their best sellers. Men and children are not forgotten either with affordable and stylish men's shirts and kids jackets usually being the most popular ranges among shoppers. They also supply a wide range of back-to-school clothing for children which competes well against larger stores with price and quality.
Established in Cheshire in 1884 by Albert Frank Peacock as Peacock’s Penny Bazaars, Peacocks as it is known today quickly established itself as offering products that were considered great value for money. This core principle of offering excellent value for money allowed Peacocks to prosper over the next 100-years. It would not be until the 1990’s that the store would explode into how we see it today, a value-for-money retailer that focuses primarily on affordable quality clothing.
In 2012, Peacocks were bought out by the Edinburgh Woollen Mill Group who also own the Jane Norman chain of stores in the UK.
