Go Outdoors To Pitch Up At Metrocentre

Go Outdoors, the leading outdoor clothing and accessories brand, has confirmed that it will be launching at Metrocentre later this year. The unit, formerly occupied by Wilko, spans 20,242 sq ft within Blue Mall, and will be the retailer’s only store in the region within a shopping centre environment.

Presenting as a Go Outdoors Express, the store will stock a full range of brands such as Rab, OEX, and Berghaus, as well as the likes of Peter Storm, HiGear, and Brasher. Customers will find expert advice and additional services will be part of the offer, including boot and rucksack fitting, with a focus on omni-channel that is designed to meet the needs of Metrocentre’s customer base.

Go Outdoors aims to inspire outdoor activities, and will be bringing the best equipment to its established audience in the North East. The first such store in the region within a shopping centre represents a significant milestone for Metrocentre, having quickly replaced former tenant Wilko, which closed late last year.

Metrocentre continues to build momentum with major retailers such as Frasers Group, Zara and Primark all committing to significant new upsized stores in the last 12 months with more new brands under offer.”
