Case Study


Established in 1952, Childrensalon started as a small high street shop in Tunbridge Wells

Still operating from the same shop, children’s clothing experts Childrensalon have now grown to large warehouse and logistics facilities on Decimus Park and have over 300 members of staff.

Their success is due to a highly skilled international workforce available in Kent and the surrounding areas which has helped Childrensalon grow – many of which choose to commute out of London to work for the company.

Over the past 5 years Childrensalon has averaged a growth of 50% per annum

Childrensalon are continually listed on the London Stock Exchange 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain, the London Stock Exchange 1,000 Companies to Inspire Europe in 2017, The Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100 Table, Kent Megagrowth 50 and have recently won the prestigious Drapers Fashion Retail Business of the Year.

The company have also been recognised for their commitment to their team having recently been awarded the 2017 KEIBA award for Employer of the Year.

The award winning business sell to over 160 countries world-wide and are continuing to grow rapidly in their key markets as well as new target markets including launching their own label in early 2018.
