Nov. 16 - United Flea Markets Acquires Keller’s Flea Market in Savannah

Category: Georgia Business News

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

November 16, 2018 - United Flea Markets, owner of the largest portfolio of flea markets in the country, announced today the acquisition of Keller’s Flea Market in Savannah, GA. The acquisition marks United Flea Markets’ second property in Georgia and the tenth in its rapidly-expanding nationwide portfolio. The company also owns and operates the J&J Flea Market in Athens, in addition to 8 other flea markets across the United States.

Rob Sieban, President, CEO and Co-Owner of United Flea Markets and former Chairman and President of the National Flea Market Association, said he’s thrilled to welcome Keller’s Flea Market into the company’s portfolio. “Keller’s Flea Market represents the classic, quintessential flea market operation,” he said. “It boasts tremendous charm, local flavor and a retro feel that’s very relevant right now. It’s also well established and treasured by the surrounding communities, making it a great fit for our family of properties.”

Sieban explains that fit is a key consideration for the United Flea Markets’ team as they continue to grow, noting that they are thoughtful in their acquisition process, considering the geographic growth of the portfolio - Keller’s Flea Market, for example, is a mere two hours from the Ramona Flea Market in Jacksonville, FL, allowing for shared resources and easy access for management teams – as well as seeking out properties with proven track records upon which they can build out for the future. “Keller’s certainly checks all the boxes,” he said. 

For Hubert and Cheri Keller, selling the flea market was a very hard decision. Once the decision was made, however, United Flea Markets was the only group they were interested in selling to. “As our family considered the next chapter, it was imperative to us all that the new ownership team have as deep a love and respect for Keller’s and the industry as we do,” said Hubert and Cheri Keller. “We were immediately impressed with the passion and professionalism displayed by United Flea Markets team and feel confident that their leadership and expertise will ensure the market’s continued success.”
