Calling all outdoorsy types

The brand-spanking new store, joint with Runners Need will be located in Highcross Shopping centre and the best thing is, you don’t need to wait long because it’s opening this very weekend.

Cotswold Outdoor has been inspiring adventures and providing quality outdoor clothing, equipment and expert advice since 1974. So whether you’re a casual-stroll-through-the-hills type or someone who is always looking for the next thrilling adventure, you know you’re in the best possible hands when it comes to finding the ideal gear for any outdoor activity.

The new store will be stocking a range of leading brands including The North Face, Rab, Jack Wolfskin and Salomon as well as some brilliant seasonal stuff that I’ve already got my eye on.

Avid runners should make a dash for the latest products from well-known brands such as Nike, Adidas and Ronhill. If all this hot weather is making you want to workout (rather than cool down with ice cream, *guilty*) then you’ll need to kit yourself out with a pair of new running shoes. No need to look anywhere else because the Leicester store will offer a comprehensive in-store fitting service, complete with a free gait analysis.

Meanwhile campers and hikers can chew the ears off the in-store experts – made up of experienced hikers and climbers – who will be able to offer boot and backpack fittings with top-notch service no doubt.

To make things even sweeter, the first 50 customers who spend £50 or more in store on the opening day on Sat 30 June will be given a goody bag worth £100!  If that wasn’t enough, Salomon and Berghaus will be showing off their latest innovations in outdoor technology and there will also be some fab prizes up for grabs including an adventure holiday. Seriously…what are you waiting for? Get down there pronto!
