The past week has been a wake-up call for many in the Outdoor industry including ourselves. While on Thursday there was no official advice regarding staying away from the hills and the countryside this quickly changed and over the weekend the Scottish government asked everyone to avoid travelling to rural areas while Scottish Mountain Rescue deemed the mountains ‘closed’.
As a company who specialise in Outdoor clothing & equipment and a group of people who love spending time out in the great outdoors this is obviously not the news we wanted to receive. The truth is however that the more of us who practise social distancing and the quicker we do this then the more lives that can be saved and the faster we can beat this!
Therefore, we are asking all our customers to either stay indoors or enjoy the nature around you. Don’t travel to the hills, don’t take unnecessary risks outdoors and don’t have group meetings or expeditions until this is all over. We will be constantly updating our blogs, social media and emails with some ideas of how you can bring the outdoors in over this period and looking at ways we can help people plan for their next adventure when this is all over.
As a small business this is a frightening time however, we are confident we can see this through and keep bringing our valued customers some of the best outdoor kit on the market! Our online store continues to operate, and we have updated our discount code to ‘STAYINDOORS’ which will give you 10% off all items on our website (excluding Hilleberg & Tentipi). We would love your support in any way, be it a review of your past service, a purchase for the future or a gift card for someone you know would love it. Purchase a gift card this week and we will top it up by 10% so when we’re allowed back outdoors you can do it in the best kit!
