This is a large and very well stocked outdoors shop that sells camping and caravan gear and also has a small bike shop. The range of brands stocked is very good with an emphasis on the lower to mid-range gear (Hi-Tech, Karrimor, Berghaus for example).
Go Outdoors has expanded very rapidly in recent years there are now more than half a dozen shops around the country. They seem able to secure some quite impressive discounts from many of the major brands a job lot of cheap boots for instance that might be a third off or half price but most of the stuff they sell is cheaper than RRP if you spend £4 per year on their discount card.
Staff are always helpful and many of them know their stuff - but in such a big place offering such low prices they can be a bit difficult to pin down at busy times. The bike shop is quite small with a small-ish stock.
The shop is just outside the city centre in an area of light industry and has very limited parking.
This store is great for campers, with a great range of tents which they have a selection made up upstairs and also cookers and sleeping bags and anything you may need for either a luxury camping to the more hardcore extreme camping.
In all ranges they do it goes from entry level to the most experience level.
They do have a lot of clothing and jackets, fleeces to enable to find the right item for your needs. They have a good range of bags as well all different sizes, again depending what you plan on using it for.
They do a discount card which costs £4ish for a year to get a discount on all items varying from 10% upwards. They do have regular offers which have large discounts.
Recently they have had a lot of regatta items which are cheap.
The staff are great, they are friendly and know their stuff so are able to offer good advice and offer alternatives.
I came across this store Go Outdoors about 1 year ago when I went with my partner, he needed some new boots for work and he was told about this place from a friend of his.
It is a store that sells everything to do with outdoors from coats and jackets to tents, any thing to do with camping, fishing equipment, skiing, cycling, caravanning, boots, maps every thing you need.
The first section you enter is the clothing section, here you can choose from so much, coats, jackets, t-shirts, trousers which include Mens, Womens and Childrens. They have so many to choose from in all sizes and colours.
There are well known brands such as Sprayway, Berghaus, Regatta, and Paramo.
Some of the clothing has Gore-Tex which offers protection from wind and rain.
Also in this section are the boots and shoes. From trainers to walking boots anything you need will be here.
If you are into camping and caravanning, then this is the place to go. Sells almost everything you could think off and more. Prices quite reasonable too.
Website sucks though - there are better deals out there.
