Mountain Warehouse opens in Looe

mountain-warehouse 450The outdoor clothing retailer has just opened a new store in the South East Cornwall town of Looe.

The shop, which is one of 30 new branches the retailer plans to open this year, is situated in the former HSBC building in Higher Market Street in the centre of the seaside resort.

Mountain Warehouse’s lease for the Looe premises was negotiated by Miller Commercial Chartered Surveyors.
Mike Nightingale who’s Partner in charge of Agency at Miller Commercial says “This new store has opened hot on the heels of a branch in Padstow which opened in March.
Mountain Warehouse’s success and expansion plans show that despite tough economic times and internet shopping trends, consumers will still use the high street for the right products at the right price.”
The business, which runs 186 stores and employs more than 1,200 staff, said its sales of rainproof jackets lifted 22% in the past 12 months following the non-stop downpours that hit the UK last winter.
Mark Neale, Mountain Warehouse’s founder and chief executive, said online sales had more than doubled and were up by 130%.
He said “We’ve found that our combination of ‘bricks and clicks’ has worked together to deliver sales growth.”
Mr Neale said new stores have been opened in locations such as Aviemore, Harrogate, Whitstable, Totnes and Whitby. The pace of international expansion also increased, with 4 new outlets opened in Poland.”
