Clinton Cards was founded in 1968 and 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.
Clinton Cards offers the most extensive range of quality greetings cards, gift
dressing and plush merchandise among UK retailers. This is especially so at
seasonal times such as Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Christmas
and Easter. Clinton's has taken the lead in offering cards for numerous other
occasions such as the UK Patron Saints' Days as well as festivals and New Year
celebrations of other religions and nationalities.
