The Triathlon Shop has ceased to trade

More difficult times for the triathlon industry, with the news that Bristol-based The Triathlon Shop has ceased to trade. The news was released today on the company’s Facebook page.

Just six months ago, after 21 years of trading, the Nottingham shop TFN also closed its doors for the final time.

Here is the full statement from the The Triathlon Shop Facebook page:

The Triathlon Shop regrets to inform you that the Company has ceased to trade and as a result, the shop has been closed. Insolvency Practitioners have been appointed to assist with the closure of the Company and it is likely the Company will be placed into Creditors Voluntary Liquidation on 18 May 2018.

We would also like to say sorry, this has all happened quite quickly and has been down to situations outside of our control. We did not plan this to happen and we appreciate your patience over the last couple of weeks while we have been trying to find a way through.
