The Littlewoods Catalogue was created in the 1930’s, and soon became a family favourite in the UK, selling over 350 000 products through their catalogue alone. Before the 70’s, agents for the business would knock door to door taking orders from the public in order. Much like AVON, the system worked really well up until the 80s, when customers could order via post.
Today, the store operates under a website, from which customers can order items from their online account. Orders will be delivered to their door and payments can be distributed over a number of months or weeks.
The Littlewoods company stock brands such as Burberry, Calvin Klein, Kim Kardashian, Hello Kitty and Ray Ban. A full list of brands can be found on the Littlewoods website.

More about Littlewoods
The Littlewoods brands took off in the 1930’s, however, the company originally started as a private betting company which specialised in foot
ball bets. Today, the store belongs to the Shop Direct group, who also own other online stores such as JD Williams.
During the 80’s, Littlewoods was one of the most sought after catalogues around the UK, especially in Liverpool. At one stage, the company was one of the largest privately owned companies in Europe, as well as the largest family run business in the UK.
In 2004, Littlewoods and Kays Catalogue were merged together in order to create the Shop Direct Group. One of the main Littlewoods stores in Liverpool was shit down after the merger, and today in its place can be found a Primark retail store.
