British travel and outdoor retailer Mountain Warehouse intends to open stores and further expand into Canada. It has already secured a brokerage to acquire Canadian retail space, and has opened its first Canadian location at the Toronto Premium Outlets. The company sells equipment for hiking, camping, running and skiing.
Mountain Warehouse now has over 150 stores. Most of them are in the United Kingdom and elsewhere in Europe. The company was founded in 1997 and is known for designing its own products, which are considered to be both well priced and high in quality. It is seeking store space in the 3,500 to 4,500 square foot range, with a desired 40 foot minimum retail frontage for each store location.
Mountain Warehouse's expansion across Canada will be exclusively represented by Brokerage Northwest Atlantic Inc. There's no word yet on how many Canadian store locations Mountain Warehouse intends on opening.
