Halfords is the UK's leading retailer of motoring and cycling products and a leading independent operator in garage servicing and auto repair
The Halfords Group operates through two reportable segments: “Retail” and “Autocentres”. 85% of Group Revenue is derived from the Retail division.
Halfords Retail manages its business in the United Kingdom (UK) and the Republic of Ireland (ROI) and its product ranges are marketed through a national network of stores and through an innovative multi-channel offer which combines website promotion with direct delivery or collection from store, backed up by in-store services. The Retail division has approximately 8,000 colleagues and a total of circa 165,000 product lines available online. There are over 460 Halfords stores selling both motoring and cycling products. In December 2014 the Cycle Republic cycling-only store concept was opened and there are 13 of these stores as at January 2017. In May 2016, Tredz and Wheelies were acquired. Tredz is an online retailer of premium bikes and cycling parts, accessories and clothing and Wheelies is the UK’s largest provider of bicycle replacement for insurance companies.
Halfords Autocentres was acquired in February 2010 and provides car service, repair and MOTs to both retail and fleet customers throughout the UK. The Autocentres proposition provides customers with an unrivalled value and service offer from a trusted brand delivering dealership quality service at more affordable garage prices. There are over 300 centres across the UK and this is growing.
