Ann Budge Says Hearts and Hibs Are Considering Opening a Joint Club Shop

Ann Budge Says Hearts and Hibs Are Considering Opening a Joint Club Shop

Hearts and their bitter Edinburgh rivals Hibs are considering opening a joint club shop in the city’s airport, according to Jambos supremo Ann Budge.

The two sides are sworn enemies on the pitch, but it turns out they’re pretty amenable when it comes to business opportunities, and any chance to make a few extra quid in Scottish football certainly can’t be sniffed at.

Responding to questions submitted by the fan group Jambos Kickback, Budge revealed the plans to tie up with Hibs at Edinburgh Airport – as well as during the city’s world famous annual Fringe Festival.

According to the Edinburgh Evening News, one supporter asked Budge: “Would you consider introducing a pop-up shop in the city centre during the festival?”

And the Hearts owner replied: “Yes, we are trying to do so. We checked this out having seen the suggestion from Jambos Kickback. It’s not as straightforward as it first seemed, but we haven’t given up.

“We’re also exploring the idea of a joint Hearts and Hibs shop at Edinburgh Airport too.”

Given the heated arguments between managers Craig Levein and Neil Lennon during various press conferences this season, it’s difficult to see them serving behind the till together, but do you think an airport shop – jointly run – is a good idea?
