After launching in 1930, Evans has seen great success in the United Kingdom and Ireland after appealing to those buying plus-size clothing. As a women's clothing retailer, the company boasts the motto 'goodbye size zero, hello size hero' and it's fair to say that this has struck a chord with the British public. In addition to women's clothing, they also stock shoes, accessories, and swimwear.
Although the company was founded at the beginning of the 1930s, it wasn't until Burton acquired the company in 1970 that it became public. Just one year later, they had expanded to nearly 80 stores and became the leading retailer for plus-size clothing. Nowadays, they have over 300 stores across the country and have even grown into the US. In addition to this, they deliver to over 100 countries around the world and are set to stay long into the future.
