We are a hugely successful outdoor retailer, with over 250 UK stores, nearly 30 in Europe and 25 in North America; we have grown a lot since 1997, when we started with our first outlet store in Swindon! Our most recent international expansion is in New Zealand.
Unlike other outdoor retailers, we don’t carry lots of different brands, nearly everything is exclusive to Mountain Warehouse. We are well located, have knowledgeable and friendly staff, and check out our Facebook page... we love dogs too!
Our teams are really important to us; we could not grow at this rate without the people on the salesfloor, and we have many success stories of those who have joined us and been promoted...the ones that took their first leading roles with us and are Supervisors, those who wanted their own stores and have had an opportunity to become Store Managers, and those who grew up from the floor into fully-fledged Area Managers. There are plenty of opportunities at Mountain Warehouse....Head Office is in South London and are also always looking for talent.
Did you need more? A generous staff discount for hopefully, taking part in activities that you love, and a bonus scheme for Management. A fun and friendly environment...retail is hard work and requires passion and a love for customer service and getting great results; enjoying what you do is key!
Mountain Warehouse has more than 20 years’ experience developing the very best outdoor gear for all the family. Having started with a single shop in Swindon the company now has 350 stores and employs more than 3,500 people. Mountain Warehouse sells more than 20 million items a year from jackets and fleeces to rucksacks and sleeping bags. It also sells items for running and cycling.
What sets us apart from competitors is that almost all our stock is exclusive to us. By designing our own, top-quality products, and having them made to exacting standards, we ensure that customers get top-quality products at very competitive prices.
In July 2018, Inflexion Private Equity Partners LLP, through its specialist minority fund Inflexion Partnership Capital, invested £45m in the business in return for a minority stake. Inflexion’s backing of the business and its management will help Mountain Warehouse grow its share of the £14 billion European market for outdoor clothing and equipment and further develop its digital sales channels. – less
