Fishing equipment retailer Angling Direct has hailed a “strong start” to the year after opening its 28th store in the UK.
The branch in Sutton in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, is located in a 4,500 sq ft former Brantano store just outside of Sutton, with access to the A38.
Chief executive Darren Bailey said: “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.”
