Who we are and what we do
The Theo Paphitis Retail Group, a multi-channel retail business which incorporates Ryman, Boux Avenue and Robert Dyas and The London Graphic Centre, is a private group of businesses owned by its Chairman, Theo Paphitis, one of the UK’s most high profile business leaders.
The first Ryman store opened in London in 1893, and the business was purchased by Theo in 1995. He subsequently purchased Partners and Stationery Box to build a truly national stationery chain with over 200 stores from St Andrews to Penzance.
Boux Avenue launched from scratch in 2011 and offers a range of lingerie, nightwear and swimwear with a very strong focus on quality, excellent service and product expertise. We have 29 stores across the UK including our UK flagship store on Oxford Street, which opened in November 2015.
Robert Dyas has traded since 1872 and was acquired in 2012. The business has a strong Home, DIY & Garden brand with just under 100 stores in the South of England.
The London Graphic Centre was acquired by the Theo Paphitis
Retail Group in 2016. They are the leading supplier of material to the
art and design community.

As part of our plans to make our businesses even more successful we want to recruit commercially focussed graduates looking for a career in retail. We are “Passionate about Retail” so we want people who are passionate about what they do, but who are also resilient, flexible, good team players with an eye for detail. We’re also looking for a mix of bright ideas and common sense.
In return we offer a real job from day one, but with the support of a
commercial mentor and externally accredited management development
