A Peterborough-based clothing company has just secured funding from leading bank Barclays to drive its expansion.

Yours Clothing, which has its head office Orton Southgate, has received £1.75 million to fund its ongoing growth.

The firm, which sells plus size ladies clothing, has its origins in a market stall more than 30 years ago and now has branches across the world and created about 300 jobs this year.

The company moved to its new head office this year and has more than 70 stores in the UK and five in the Middle East and a strong internet presence.

Managing director Andrew Killingworth said: “I’m delighted to be working with the Barclays team as they have demonstrated a real strength and desire to help us, a small local brand, to achieve our ambitious global plans.”

Steve Brown, relationship director at Barclays, said: This is a very exciting retail company, built on entrepreneurial spirit, which is rapidly expanding and creating new jobs.”
