The Mothercare PLC is a worldwide store for both the parents and small children. Their iconic brands have an extended record as specialist UK suppliers, with Mothercare starting its first store in the entire year of 1961 and the Early Learning Centre in the entire year of 1974. Both of the brands resonate well with customers around the world. Across our UK and International businesses, they will have 1,300 stores across more than 50 countries, supplying a selection of products from both Mothercare and the Early Learning Centre. In the United Kingdom, the Early Learning Centre and the Mothercare products can be purchased through the Group's own multi-channel (in-store and online) retail businesses and with a smaller wholesale procedure. Internationally, the Group's products can be purchased through its Franchise Companions' shops with a small but growing online occurrence and a fledgling inexpensive business for territories where they don't have Franchise Companions.
