Park Group Plc

Park Group plc is the UK’s leading multi-retailer voucher and prepaid gift card business. Based in the North West, the AIM-listed Company was founded in 1967 and has evolved from a regional Christmas hamper supplier to one of the sector’s most innovative organisations.

Park’s popular shopping brand, Love2shop, is accepted by many of the UK’s major high street retailers. Vouchers, pre-paid cards and e-codes, as well as single store gift cards are sold to consumers via Park’s online portal, and to businesses via the award-winning Love2shop Business Services.

The Company is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, having gained its e-monies licence in 2010. This enabled Park to develop their own prepaid gift card system, flexecash®, which it uses to create reward and incentive schemes for a range of organisations. Customers have loaded over £400million onto flexecash® cards since the platform was launched. Strategic investment in digital products, technology and e-commerce has enabled Park to consistently perform well and meet the changing needs of customers.
