The 39-year-old woman and 32-year-old man, both from Liverpool, were arrested by plain clothed officers on Thursday, October 4 on suspicion of a number of thefts across the North West.
They have been bailed pending further enquiries under the condition they must not enter any Matalan stores across the UK.
