Mothercare is a specialist store for new mothers, babies and children catering for ages from birth up until the age of eight. The store was established back in 1961 and originally sold pushchairs, cots and mums maternity wear. It has since expanded into baby and children’s wear. Today Mothercare offers a great range of nursery furniture, car safety, kids clothing, bedding, cots, toys and more. Prices are competitive with free delivery options and regular discount offers in the form of voucher codes and sale reductions. Customers can find Mothercare outlets no matter where they live including European countries, the Middle East, the Far East and Africa.
The main mail order side of the business started in 1962 and had gone public by 1972. By 1982 Mothercare teamed up with Habitat to launch the company Habitat-Mothercare plc expanding publicly in 1984. In 1986 the Habitat-Mothercare Company merged with BHS but by 2000 had again become independent once more and its name changed to Mothercare plc. ELC was acquired in 2007 to further expand into the children’s toy sector and remains one of the most popular toy stores both online and on the high street.
