Inc Retail continues its growth trajectory with the acquisition of Tootsa MacGinty, the award-winning unisex childrenswear brand, despite challenging market conditions.
This acquisition will bolster the retail group’s core offering, and further defines its footprint in redefining retail through nurturing brands and providing them with a platform to grow.
Dan Shaw, Managing Director at Inc Retail Group, commented: “Tootsa is a fantastic brand to bring under the Inc Retail banner. Its strong commitment to sustainability perfectly fits with our dynamic and purpose-led acquisition strategy. Complementing and expanding our growing apparel and accessories portfolio, this acquisition offers us the potential to fully pursue our vision and opens the doors to creating a group e-commerce dedicated team.”
Gender-free clothing is breaking down boundaries put in place by society and challenging “outdated” gender roles, and for Tootsa taking gender stereotypes out of kids’ clothing has been ingrained in its mission statement and integral to its business from the start.
Tootsa, the award-winning unisex childrenswear brand, was founded in 2010 and is designed to be worn by both girls and boys alike with the aim to create a stylish alternative to the traditional boy-girl clothing divide often seen on the high street. Vibrant colours, playful details and quality, hardwearing fabrics to ensure longevity were, and remain, at the core of the brand’s values.
