As a group, the stores represent an opportunity for an experienced retail management team to enter or re-enter this segment of the sporting and outdoor pursuits market.
They may also be of interest to suppliers of feeds and/or equestrian equipment keen to extend control of their own channel of retail distribution.
Or individually they may be attractive to existing saddlers interested in re-locating within their own catchment area.
The businesses are for sale or are equally open to offers of a merger or joint venture initiative.
All the stores have traded as saddleries for many years, including prior to acquisition by the present owners, and have built a reputation and goodwill in their local equestrian communities.
