I’m down south and haven’t seen anything to do with them. I’ve not heard anything through timp either. I wouldn’t be surprised now if they did come back though. They probably pay more than timp do so I’m sure a lot of people would jump ship.

I wouldn’t say they was bigger according to their site they operate 281 shops which is nothing compared to timpson which are probably easily around 1700 shops now not including their others shops.

They’ve got at least 950 in Europe. They’ll have a lot more in Australia and Japan too

Timpson are bigger, most of Minit was purchased through Management buyouts but still retain the branding and Company name, Australia is one example.

Has anyone actually confirmed that this is true? Anyone seen or supplied one of the shops? Anyone know what they are calling themselves?

I heard the tale off a fella at cutting edge, don't realy think its anything to worry about, after all were the original mister minit  serious competition to any one think if they do come back it will be as a franchise  ( hope they don't want as much money as  mr crafstsmans workshop ?)

Mister Minit in most of the world is a franchise.

They were struck off companies register in 2011, restored in 2015 but are a non trading company at the moment.
