Clinton Cards

Clinton Cards is the largest specialist retailer of greetings cards, plush merchandise (soft toys) and related products in the UK with over 700 shops.

Clinton Cards was founded in 1968 when Don Lewin OBE, the present Chairman, opened his first shop in Epping, Essex. The business grew to 77 shops by 1988 and was then successfully floated on the London Stock Market. This enabled the company to increase its rate of growth and by the summer of 1994 the business comprised 277 shops. In October 1994 Clintons acquired 83 shops from Hallmark Cards and in September 1995 acquired 112 shops from Carlton Cards. In October 1998, the entire share capital of GSG Holdings Limited was purchased, adding a further 211 shops to the portfolio. In December 2004, the acquisition of The Birthdays Group took place, increasing the total estate by yet another 488 stores.
