Halfords' camping sales are boosted
The Redditch based Halfords in the West Midlands, have undoubtedly had their best ever camping season to date despite the English weather not living up to expectations. We were all promised fantastic BBQ summers in the UK, however in reality we have had to suffer quite simply many wash out days. Despite the unpredictable weather Halfords can report that their camping sales have dramatically increased since previous seasons. At the start of the summer, sales also increased in cycling and other travel equipment.
Mr Nick Wharton, the Financial Director at Halfords has commented on the increased purchases. “We’re very pleased with what we see as a solid start to our financial year but there is no doubt the consumer situation remains challenging. What we have seen is people wanted one of our tents for the summer holiday in August but because the weather was good in the Spring they might have bought it in May. We believe we will have our strongest camping season ever.” If you are one of the many happy campers in the UK, have you thought about protecting your tent and camping equipment?
