Chief executive Andrew Killingsworth, 58, was selling womenswear in a market in East Anglia in the 1990s when he bought a collection of larger-size clothes. When the consignment “flew out”, he founded this company. Sales grew 20% to £105.9m in 2019. Killingsworth said that the lockdown had cost the Peterborough-based firm £22m in lost sales from its 165 stores across the UK, Germany and Ireland, but since then it has instituted operational changes that make it confident about the future.
