France’s largest fishing tackle retail chain has moved to reassure its customers after being lifted out of administration by its new owner.
As revealed in last week’s Communiqué Online, Pacific Pêche has been rescued following its takeover by French entrepreneur and business leader Agathe Boidin.
On its Facebook page, the chain, which has pledged to keep 38 of its profitable stores open, said that it had secured a solid buyer for the business who has extensive experience in retail and logistics.
“For months many of you have asked questions about the future of Pacific Pêche and have been worried about our situation.
“Pacific Pêche will maintain its status as a leading expert in the sale of fishing tackle and we are going to set up partnerships with the biggest brands in the industry,” it said. “Whether you are a beginner or expert fisherman, you will find a range of products that suits you thanks to the tens of thousands of products that are available.”
It added that all current orders, after-sales service, credit notes and gift cards remain valid.
It also confirmed that it will be further developing its network of stores with the opening of new Pacific Pêche outlets closer to its customers, including one in its headquarters of Montpellier.
“We will be developing various sales support initiatives both instore and online in the coming months.”
