In a short statement on their website, the howies management team announce they have quietly bought the business back.
“When we were sold to Timberland in 2006 we became a tiny part of a $2 billion company and that was not easy. When VF bought Timberland last September we became a miniscule part of a $10 Billion corporation. So while everybody was crunching the big numbers, the howies management team quietly bought the business back.”
Expect some exciting things from www.howies.co.uk throughout 2012.
