New Store Opening


Angling Direct plc (AIM: ANG.L), the largest specialist fishing tackle and equipment retailer in the UK, is pleased to announce that it has opened its 28th store in the UK. The new store, located in Sutton in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, opened on Saturday 15th June.


The new store, which was previously occupied by Brantano, has a 4,500 sq ft. display area and is located just outside the main town, with easy access via the A38 and other arterial roads.


Located in a popular fishing area, with a strong angling community and a series of lake and river venues, the store is the first fishing tackle "destination store" of its kind in Sutton in Ashfield. As with all Angling Direct stores, it caters for a wide range of angling disciplines, whilst also providing excellent service from local and knowledgeable employees. The new store is creating five full and three part-time positions.


Angling Direct's Chief Executive Officer, Darren Bailey, commented:

"We are very excited to have opened our Sutton in Ashfield store, which is situated in a very popular angling area that includes a number of excellent local lakes, including A1 Pits, Sapphire Lakes, Trent View and, of course, the great River Trent.


"As we seek to cater for all anglers across the UK with a new and modern retail offering, we are continuing to strategically expand our store footprint, as well as enhance our online offering in terms of products, experience and education in order to help raise the profile of angling.


"While parts of the retail sector are experiencing difficulties, we are delighted that our strategic focus on customer experience and service has paid off and delivered a strong start to the year. Additionally, our focus on carefully selecting the correct location for each of our stores is driving our growth and brand value. We look forward to updating the market on our further progress in due course."
