QD Stores is part of the QD Group, which is an independent, family-owned chain of High Street value retail outlets. There are currently 27 QD Stores across the country.

The original concept of QD Stores’ quality discounted retailing was first established back in 1985 by the company’s CEO Nick Rubins’ father, and current chairman, Danny Rubins. The aim was to offer customers a wide range of constantly changing, quality products at discounted prices, which led to the stores’ name QD – short for Quality Discounts.
