Shearings brand to be re-launched






Touring company Leger Holidays has bought the assets of Shearings, whose parent company Specialist Leisure Group
"We have gone into this deal knowing that the two brands already have many synergies - similar product, customer demographic, experience values, impressive repeat business and customer loyalty and, as such, we already have the business model in place to seamlessly relaunch Shearings.

"Leger Holidays has nearly 40 years' experience in escorted tours - we are not recklessly helicoptering into unknown territory.

"We are particularly keen to develop Shearings' popular UK tours portfolio and increase our UK tours market share. Post Covid-19 we are predicting an increase in staycations and will be very quickly launching around 30 new UK tours for 2021 and beyond.

"This deal will not only save the Shearings' brand but will reinforce Leger Holidays' position as the UK's largest coach holiday operator."

Leger Holidays will be working with travel agents on the commissionable sale of Shearings' tours and is also open to talks with Shearings' former suppliers, it said.
