Halfords shuts Boardman Performance Centre “with immediate effect”

We reported on its prospects last month (HERE), and the perhaps not surprising news has been confirmed today.

Following its Strategic Review, Halfords Group plc has closed the Boardman Performance Centre in Evesham, with immediate effect.

Statement from the Boardman Performance Centre:

Last month Halfords launched a strategic review to consider the future of their Performance Cycling business of which the Performance Centre’s formed a central part. This review has now concluded, and the difficult decision has been made to close the Performance Centre with immediate effect.

On behalf of our team, we would like to thank you for the support we have received since opening. In the last two years, we have had the pleasure of welcoming customers from every part of the cycling world, from Olympic athletes to customers buying their first bike.

To be the first to do anything is always a challenge, and for a ground-breaking project like the Performance Centre, even more so. It remains our hope that an operator can be secured for the centre we all love.

If you have a future booking with us, we will contact you today via email with further details.
