Park Group signs new retail collaborations

Wirral-based Park Group – the UK’s leading provider of prepaid gift cards, multi-retailer gift vouchers and digital rewards services – has signed a new collaboration with British retail giant, the Arcadia Group.

The Arcadia Group which owns a raft of famous high street brands including Topshop, Topman, Miss Selfridge, Dorothy Perkins, Burton, Outfit, Evans and Wallis, will now accept Park’s UK-leading Love2shop multi-retailer voucher.

And, from this month, shoe giant Wynsors World of Shoes, office and home suppliers Office Outlet – formerly Staples – and online musical instrument specialists DJM Music have also signed up to accept Park’s ‘Love2shop’ vouchers.

The new retail additions mean Park’s UK-leading multi-retailer gift vouchers are now accepted by more than 175 national brands and over 20,000 high street stores across the UK, including Argos, Boots, Clarks, Debenhams, HMV, Iceland, New Look, River Island, Matalan, Mothercare and Pizza Express.

“Love2Shop is already the nation’s number one multi-retailer voucher, but these exciting new retail collaborations really do open up new, or strengthen existing, markets for us,” said Julian Coghlan, Park Group’s Operations Director. “The stable of Arcadia Group brands is visible on pretty much every UK high street or shopping centre, so this is a major new signing for our business and really boosts the opportunities for our customers and clients across the UK.

“We’re always keen to speak to retail brands who share our ideals and help open the voucher out to new and wider audiences.

“Wyndors is also a really well-regarded brand and they have an incredibly strong footprint across the north of England in particular. Office Outlet – with its 90 plus stores across the UK – opens up more choice for customers and students looking for home and office supplies using the vouchers. And, with DJM Music rapidly growing musical instruments sales online, this expands our offering in this market too.”

As well as the new Love2shop partnerships, Park has been working with fast-growing UK lifestyle clothing and accessories retailer, Fat Face, to achieve accreditation for Park’s popular e-money prepaid flexecash® Gift Card.

From the summer, Fat Face will accept the card, powered by Park’s in-house IT infrastructure, which allows Park to issue and process prepaid gift cards as well as being the acquirer, in a similar way to Visa and MasterCard.

Fat Face’s accreditation means that almost 100 brands are now flexecash accredited, including Debenhams, M&S, Boots, Argos, Currys, Wilko and Matalan.
