Britain’s leading bicycle retailer
Halfords Group
has seen its shares backpedal 22% in the past 12 months, hurt recently by poor sales from its higher-margin auto repair and accessories business.

The retailer owns 371 Halfords Autocentres, but locked-down customers have been using their vehicles less, requiring fewer services and parts. However, Halfords (ticker: HFD.UK) can’t blame coronavirus for all of its woes. The shares have fallen 72% over five years after a series of profit warnings and a string of chief executive officers.

Like many retailers, Halfords has expensive rent for its more than 440 stores at a time when consumers are shifting to online purchases. But CEO Graham Stapleton instituted a strategy two years ago that focuses on services in which Halfords provides engineers to fit the parts it sells onto customers’ bikes and vehicles.

Supporting Sustainable Practices

We proudly support UMD’s efforts toward creating a sustainable environment by providing programs motivated to reduce the amount of driving to campus. Like most institutions, we only offer a limited number of parking spaces, which then demands alternative modes to get to campus. 

We collaborate with the Duluth Transportation Authority (DTA) to ensure the feasibility of taking the DTA bus around the city, which is an option many students, faculty, and staff utilize each semester.

Bicycle Parking & Security

Campus Bicycle Parking

Bicycles may park only in designated parking areas. With so many bicycles on campus, parking regulations are strictly enforced. Illegally parked bicycles, those that are not parked at designated bicycle racks, create problems and inconvenience for people, damage property, and generally constitute a hazard. If you do not park your bicycle in a designated bicycle rack, it may be impounded and you will be charged a fine.

Some residence halls allow students to store bikes in their assigned room. Check with your RA for further information. Staff and faculty members may be able to park their bicycles in their office or other assigned workspace with the permission of their department chairperson. Bicycle lockers are also available for rent in four campus locations. Contact the Transportation Services for information on fees and availability.

Stress Free Car Shipping Services

Transporting a vehicle is not an overly complicated process, though it may seem that way from the outside, especially if you’ve never done it before. Shipping a car, truck, motorcycle, or any other type of vehicle is just a matter of collecting the necessary info and contacting the right people; in this case automotive transport companies. In some instances, you may be contacting a broker rather than a carrier, but they both offer similar solutions: a broker arranges for shipment, whereas a carrier delivers the vehicle.

Whether you’re shipping a vehicle to across the state, or from one coast to the other, the process is more or less the same. You’ll need information such as the make, model, and year of the vehicle, as well as its current location and where you’re shipping to. It’s also helpful to have a delivery timeframe in mind if you need to vehicle shipped
