A message from the owner, Dion Jackson
This is an announcement I was hoping I could avoid at all costs. However, Jackson Sports is closing down for good after 56 years in business. Why? Quite simply, I am retiring and I did not find a suitable buyer to continue this family run independent store that opened in 1967. It is with a heavy heart I make this announcement as I feel we have truly created a brand that speaks to many and has made a name in the outdoor equipment market. We have had so many loyal customers and it is so disappointing to have made it this far and quit after a significant investment in both time and money.
The past few years have certainly been a rollercoaster with Covid lockdowns, issues related to the new UK customs arrangements with the EU, manufacturers and suppliers facing a shortage of raw materials (metal, plastics, leather, etc) as well as issues with packaging and shipping container availability, increasing costs across the whole business and a huge increase in competition from large businesses and corporations.
Having started Jackson Sports 56 years ago as a family project to help others shop good quality mountain and watersports products, I am truly disappointed that it comes to an end. Having said that, we have done well to make it this far and, in this time, I believe we have made an impact and helped so many customers. I therefore want to take this opportunity to say a few thank yous...
To our local, national and international customers - We are really sorry to disappoint our long-standing and loyal customers who have trusted us to select the best outdoor clothing and equipment for them. I cannot thank you enough for your support over the past 56 years. We have all loved testing and selecting every single product for you and seeing our products being posted out to the United Kingdom, Ireland, the European Union, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, ….
I hope we have introduced you to many quality outdoor brands that you will continue to love.
To our brands and suppliers - It has been amazing to be part of the outdoor equipment community and working with and alongside so many quality brands and like-minded suppliers. I will really miss this but hope to keep supporting them in other ways.
To Jackson Sports team - I want to say a massive thank you to our team throughout the years. A special thanks to Gareth, Jonathan, Ian, and James for all your input into the shop. Our Excellent customer feedback - we are 5 stars rated on Trustpilot - is down to all of you! I cannot thank you enough for your help and hard-work and wherever you go next, they will be lucky to have you.
Once we have closed down and cleared our shelves of all remaining stock, we will be taking a break. Our website will switch off on August 31st. All customer personal data will be removed. Any communication will come via email for now.
One last thank you to everyone who has supported us and followed our journey over the past 56 years and a special thank you to all of our fantastic regulars (you know who you are). We will be in touch specifically with our subscribed customers and anyone who has an unused gift voucher. If you're a newsletter subscriber, sorry in advance for our email reminders over the coming month, we need to do all we can to clear our shelves to ensure all of our products are sold. We'll be back with our final goodbye at the end of the month.
