The Works began life as a discount book retailer, Remainders Ltd, in 1981, rebranding to become The Works in 1981. The Works was acquired by private equity firm, Endless LLP in May 2008, establishing The Works Stores Ltd. Following the acquisition, Endless partnered with retail entrepreneur Anthony Solomon to transform the business. Working with the management team has firmly established The Works as the leader in its category, a category that extends further than being just a discount bookstore. The Works is now firmly established as a family friendly discount alternative to full price specialist retailers of gifts, arts, crafts, hobbies, stationery, toys and books. This has been achieved by focusing on the core principles of securing the best products at the best prices, which it sells via its accessible network of stores, and online via TheWorks.co.uk.
The Works continues to expand, both geographically, adding new stores to its network across England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Eire and by expanding its multichannel offering via its website. Groupon is delighted to team up with The Works to offer you books, art supplies and other gift ideas for less.
