The Group

The Theo Paphitis Retail Group encompasses Ryman Stationery, Boux Avenue and Robert Dyas. We are a family of trusted multi-channel brands focused on delivering fantastic customer service and first class product knowledge. We are passionate about retail.


In the October of 1893, a young Henry Ryman flipped over the ‘Open’ sign to his brand new shop on Great Portland Street, London. Ryman Stationery was officially born. From then to now, we’ve had over 120 years’ experience in providing essential stationery items, and expert product knowledge.

Over the years, we’ve grown, developed and extended our offering to provide the very best in stationery, office supplies, technology and office furniture. And that ‘Open’ sign that Henry turned over all those years ago is now permanently in place with our fast and helpful website.

With over 220 stores and our online shop, our business accounts and special discounts for students, our unrivalled product knowledge, range and service, and our commitment to giving you the very best products, we’re still just as passionate about stationery as Henry was on that very first day. You can rely on Ryman.


Born out of a love for lingerie and all things romantic, Boux Avenue brings traditional service, superior fit and outstanding quality to a modern and beautiful store setting.

Boux Avenue is your one stop shop for lingerie, swimwear and nightwear. You can buy online, on your mobile and through 28 stores nationwide, not to mention an expanding international portfolio of stores.

No matter what your age, size or style Boux Avenue is an inclusive brand for everybody. Available in sizes 28-38, A-G cups and sizes 6-18. With an unrivalled eye for detail and passion for customer service, Boux Avenue adds elegance to everyone’s lingerie drawer.


The foundations of Robert Dyas’ success began over 140 years ago with £5. That’s how much Robert Dyas had to invest when he emigrated from County Meath in Ireland. Robert Dyas set up his first shop in London in 1872 and by the time he died, he had established a strong family business with 18 stores. 

Today, Robert Dyas is a modern and innovative retailer who strive to provide the very best in ironmongery, DIY and household items.

With over 95 stores spread across the South of England and our online shop, we use our product knowledge, range, heritage and excellent customer service to continue to grow upon the vision that Robert Dyas instilled over a century ago.


London Graphic Centre are the leading supplier of material to the art and design community. Our Covent Garden store is regarded as a major outlet of its kind, offering unparalleled choice from the leading suppliers of the world.

Famous for our huge in-store range, we also provide convenience, accessibility, excellent value and great service; all of which can be accessed nationwide via LGC LIVE - our online service or through our mail order department.
