For generations our customers have relied on us for the clothing and equipment as well as advice and encouragement to fulfil their outdoor adventures and that remains as true today as ever. Millets was formed by multiple companies that came together over the years to form the business we love today. It all started over a century ago in 1893 when our founder, J.M Millet, 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. Unfortunately, this wasn’t to last. Bomb damage and stock shortages during the war had a huge impact on the company forcing two stores to close by 1951. After the devastation the war had caused Millets picked itself 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 Millets with a total of 54 units. In 1979, Foster Brothers Clothing plc took over the business which continued to grow. Millets 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.
