“This is our first international partnership and we are excited about the opportunity to apply this model in other markets.”
The Reject Shop chief executive Andre Reich said: “Card Factory is a fantastic partner and we are delighted with the reaction so far.

“Since the rollout, we have seen significant volume increases in our stores and we were delighted with the recent launch of Card Factory’s Valentine’s range, which also saw a sharp rise in volumes.”
