What is Millets?
Millets is a UK-based outdoor retailer founded by J.M. Millet in 1893. It was formed by multiple companies that came together over the years to form the business people love today. The company’s story began when the founder opened a drapers and outfitters business in Southampton and Bristol before handing over the Bristol store to his Grandson, JB Spielman, in 1923. His Grandson increased the merchandise with a wider range of clothing, boots, shoes and much more which helped the business grow to five stores by 1939. While Morris Millett, another businessman who played a valuable role in the history of Millets, opened a haberdashery shop in Croydon in 1920. By 1948 the business was trading from 8 stores and A.C. Millett joined his father’s business after the leaving the army.
Unfortunately, during the war, bomb damage and stock shortages had a huge impact on the company forcing two stores to close by 1951. After the devastation the war had caused they picked themselves back up and by 1961 there were 11 shops attached to the company and by the early ‘70s Henderson Sports and Marcus Stores Limited were acquired providing them with a total of 54 units. In 1979, Foster Brothers Clothing plc took over the business which continued to grow.
It was 1986 when Foster Brothers Clothing acquired Milletts Leisure plc joining Millets and Milletts together to create Millets Leisure Limited. The outdoor retailer underwent further changes in more recent years when in 1996 it became the Outdoor Group boasting 158 stores. Blacks Leisure Group then acquired the company and in 2009 after some restructuring, the store portfolio was reduced to 208. In 2012, JD Sports Fashion plc acquired Blacks from administration. Today Millets trade 97 stores nationwide and continue to be known as the destination for camping and outdoor adventure gear on the high street.
