Why would I need to call the Clintons head office contact number?

Clintons Cards are a UK-based greetings cards and gifts company that is also known for selling gift cards and soft toys. Founded in 1968, Clintons is a staple of the UK high street and has spread successfully to almost every town and city in the UK, but was heavily set back in 2012, when the lingering effects of economic downturn forced the closure of 350 branches of Clintons and essentially railroaded the company into administration. Following this, the company was bought over by American Greetings, a greetings card and holidays industry giant from the United States. Clintons kept their name, but dropped “cards” from the end, becoming the mononymous “Clintons”. Otherwise, they kept their name and history intact, keeping all the corporate values that made them such an iconic British chain and a landmark of the British high street, despite now being owned by a multinational American business.

You may need to get in touch with Clintons for any number of reasons, not all of which will necessarily revolve around greetings cards and greetings card accessories. Perhaps you want to get in touch with the Clintons Head Office to check whether your favourite greetings card or type of wrapping paper is in stock; perhaps you want to discover whether a new licenced property has been acquired by Clintons which would make it worth holding out to buy the perfect licenced merchandise in birthday card form. Perhaps you want to complain about a staff member or a card that offended you, or, alternatively, heap praise upon a staff member or artist who you really liked. The reasons are limitless!

You may also need to contact the Clintons head office to:

  • Find out more about a card or card accessory
  • Complain about an offensive or insensitive card or wrapping paper pattern you found in store
  • Rearrange a missed delivery
  • Place an order for a never-before-seen, unique Clintons card
  • Ask about the American Greetings takeover
  • Find out the name of an artist you particularly loved
  • Buy a gift card or order a specific gift into the store
  • Make a complaint against Clintons

About Clintons

Clintons, formerly “Clintons Cards” is a chain store in the UK, selling greetings cards, gifts and gift accessories. It has been a fixture of the UK high street since 1968, when it was founded, and was wildly successful in its first fifty years, buying over several Hallmark stores and even buying the entire business of their rivals “Birthdays”. However, in 2012, the company’s debts were bought over by the US giant “American Greetings” and immediately called in for collection. The effect on Clintons was catastrophic – it sold 350 of its branches and immediately went into administration, only to be bought by American Greetings once it entered liquidation. Since then, after a name change to “Clintons”, it has been owned by American Greetings and operated under their flag.

Clintons Cards Opening Times

Clintons Cards stores all operate either on their own two feet as high street stores, or as part of larger complexes, like shopping malls or merchant’s quarters. As a result, the individual stores may operate opening times that are dependent on the economic climate of their surroundings, the stores around them, the requirements of their host mall or shopping centre, and the time of year.

For example, it is common for stores in shopping centres or malls to open when their mall does, and close when it closes. As the public cannot access the mall outside these times, it would make sense not to be open then. Clintons stores which operate out of their own premises on the high street are more flexible with their opening and closing times, generally able to stay open for as long as they like. They are more likely to be able to operate extended opening hours, and will generally operate standard opening hours for the street on which they are situated, except in particularly Card-sales-heavy times of year, like Christmas and Valentine’s Day, when they  may choose to operate extended opening times to allow people to purchase all the cards, gifts tags, wrapping paper, small gifts, envelopes, decorations, or other cards and celebration paraphernalia they may need.

So to cut a long and exciting story short, Clintons Cards has different opening times depending on which store you are looking at. For more information, you can check the Clinton’s website (this isn’t it), call the shopping centre or the individual Clintons store you are looking for, or call the Clintons head office contact number on 0844 826 8606, between the hours of 9am and 5.30pm from Monday to Friday to be put through to Clintons head office customer service specialists. With access to a Clintons Cards database covering every Clintons store, they will quickly be able to find out what you need to know and provide you the opening times of the store which you are visiting. You may also ask them any questions you have regarding cards or card accessories, or report any issues you have had with Clintons.

It might be a good idea, if you have no other option, to look at the 9am to 5.30pm opening times of the Clintons head office contact number as guidelines for the opening times of their stores.

Who are Clinton’s Cards?

Clintons Cards are a UK-based greetings cards and gifts company that is also known for selling gift cards and soft toys. Founded in 1968, Clintons is a staple of the UK high street and has spread successfully to almost every town and city in the UK, but was heavily set back in 2012, when the lingering effects of economic downturn forced the closure of 350 branches of Clintons and essentially railroaded the company into administration.

Otherwise, they kept their name and history intact, keeping all the corporate values that made them such an iconic British chain and a landmark of the British high street, despite now being owned by a multinational American business.

Who owns Clintons Cards?

Clintons is owned by American Greetings, a US greetings card multinational corporation with strong ties to the profitable holiday traditions of humanity. It was bought over by American Greetings from its British owners in 2012, after a particularly rocky period of financial turmoil resulted in the closure of 350 Clintons Cards branches.

Rather than go quietly into that good night, the Clintons Cards executive board sold the company to American Greetings, and it rebranded itself as “Clintons”, continuing to bring festive cheer to all the citizens of Britain, all year round. If you want to know more, you can call the Clintons head office on 0844 826 8606, between the hours of 9am and 5.30pm from Monday to Friday.
