I used to live opposite this factory, and never realised how big it actually was, a few reccies later and success.

Officers Club was founded in the 1990s in Sunderland and latterly had its headquarters in Cramlington. With over 150 stores in the UK, Officers Club was one of the biggest retail companies in the UK with flagship stores in London's Oxford Street, Cardiff, Scotland and north-east England. The company also sourced clothes from Asia.

The company went into administration in 2008 and sale in December 2008 the company entered administration, and on 23 December The Officers Club's administrators PricewaterhouseCoopers decided to close 32 of the 150 stores immediately. PricewaterhouseCoopers also announced that 118 stores had been sold to TimeC 1215 limited for an undisclosed fee. TimeC 1215 is backed by David Charlton, chief executive of The Officers Club. This deal saved around 900 jobs.

Administration and sale by 2011 the Officers Club had just over 100 stores, with total of around 800 staff employed across the business. On 29 March 2011 the company entered administration again. As part of this process 47 stores were sold to rival menswear retailer Blue Inc, with staff at these stores retaining their jobs. The "Petroleum" and the officers club menswear brand, owned by Officers Club, will be retained by Blue Inc in the interim.
