GO Outdoors to open in Alnwick - and it's celebrating with a gift voucher and goody bag giveaway

An outdoor and equipment retailer is preparing to open another store in the North East - and it's celebrating with a giveaway.

GO Outdoors announced that it will open a new store in Alnwick on May 20, with a grand store opening event happening on Saturday, June 1. It comes just months after the news that the store will take over the former Wilko unit in Metrocentre, creating a large store in the Gateshead shopping centre.

The new Alnwick store will be officially opened at 9am on June 1, and members of staff will be on hand to greet the first 100 customers through the doors with a £20 gift voucher, followed by a free goody bag worth £25 for the next 100 groups. The celebrations will continue throughout the day, with free hot drinks and family favourites including a DJ and balloon modeller.

To celebrate the new store, GO Outdoors Alnwick is also offering an extra 15% discount across departments from May 28 until June 10. GO Outdoors will be located at Willowburn Retail Park, Willowburn Avenue, Alnwick, NE66 2JH.

The new store has ample free customer parking and will stock a wide range of unbeatable brands, such as Rab, OEX and Berghaus, as well as trusted brands like Peter Storm, Hi-Gear and Brasher. The 11,000 sq ft store employs a team of 15 and offers services such as boot and rucksack fitting, as well as collection and drop-off points for parcels from online orders.

Lee Bagnall, CEO of GO Outdoors, looks forward to the opening and said: "We are absolutely delighted and proud to open the new GO Outdoors in Alnwick.

"We have had a brilliant couple of years at GO, as more and more people are reaping the benefits of the outdoors for their physical and mental well-being, and this expansion is the outcome of that success.

"We're looking forward to offering more customers our unbeatable range of outdoor clothing, footwear and equipment, whilst also supporting local communities and offering jobs in Northumberland."
