Fishing tackle and equipment retailer Angling Direct has opened a new store in Nottingham.
The latest addition brings the company’s UK-wide estate to 27 stores.
The Nottingham branch was previously occupied by Majestic Wines and spans 4,500 sq ft.
Chief executive Darren Bailey said: “We are very excited to have opened our Nottingham store, which is set in a very popular angling area near the river Trent. The location also offers a good number of local lakes which all cover a broad range of fishing disciplines.”
Angling Direct also reported a hike in like-for-like sales for February and March 2019, which were up by 28.5 per cent compared to the previous year.
Bailey added: “Whilst other areas of the retail sector may be experiencing difficulties, we are delighted that our strategic focus on customer experience and service, as well as positioning our stores in the correct locations, is driving our growth and brand value.”
