William Hill UK betting shops for sale


Just read the article. I can't see the William Hill shop chain being an attractive target for any of the three existing operators with a major high street presence - Betfred,PaddyPower,Ladbrokes - because there would be too many places where they already have betting shops close to the William Hill shops. So then they'd have to either sell the shops as betting shops - they might struggle to find buyers - or sell them to non-gambling operators,which would leave them open to accusations of restricting competition.Also, those three operators expanded their chains before the restrictions on gambling machines when betting shops were more profitable,so they have more than enough shops already.
