What they say about themselves:
"Select believes that fashion and great value should be at the heart of everything we do.
Currently with over 120 UK stores and rapid expansion plans in place, our key focus is on opening more prime trading stores throughout the UK.
"Select has come a long way since its first launch in the early 1980's. In 2004 the ultimate strategy was to drive the company away from being a well known 'value' ladies retailer, to that of a more fashion forward high-street leader. The then-owner of the business worked very closely with the Head of Buying Debra Bloom and Select was on route to becoming a more fashion focussed retailer. In early 2008 the company was bought over by a Turkish investor named Cafer Mahiroglu and Genus UK Ltd was born, but continued to trade as Select. David Pidgeon was brought in with years of fashion retail experience as Managing Director and with a new management team in place, Select is now on an exciting re-branding journey. Our overall aim is to offer effortless catwalk to high-street style, yet with surprising prices relative to our competitors."
