Camping retailer takes former Outdoor Megastore site in Ascot-brokered deal

Camping retailer GO Outdoors is to create 55 jobs at a new store on the former Outdoor Megastore Rimrose Road site.

Outdoor Megastore went into administration and shut the operation in September with the loss of around 20 jobs.

Last week administrator Darren Brookes, of Hale-based Milner Boardman Partnership, announced he had sold the assets of Outdoor Megastore to an unnamed buyer.

Now, ECHO Business can reveal that Sheffield-based GO Outdoors was the purchaser and will open its new operation, taking its UK portfolio to around 50 stores, in a deal brokered by Waterloo-based Ascot Property Group, which owns the Rimrose Road site.

GO Outdoors is aiming to open the new store next spring.

A spokesperson for the group said: “As part of a major rebrand, GO Outdoors will create a total of 55 jobs in the area.

“The opening has come as a result of customer demand to open a GO Outdoors store in the area.”

Ascot said GO Outdoors will completely refurbish the 30,000 sq ft of retail and warehousing space and provide a brand new car park on the neighbouring land, which was formerly a car and van sales pitch.

The landlord said the site had attracted interest from JD Sports and Yeomans Outdoors.

However, it said its team acted quickly to agree terms with GO Outdoors, which will see refurbishment work begin immediately.

Stuart Howard, property manager for Ascot, said: “GO Outdoors is a hugely successful company in a growing industry and we are delighted to have concluded this deal so quickly thanks also to our legal team at MSB Solicitors and all those involved.

“The site is excellently located and with Liverpool having a growing interest in outdoor sports and activities I am sure this will be a welcome addition to the city.”

He added: “Ascot continues to grow successfully, working with top companies across the UK, and has a number of high-end retailers and leisure operators lined up to occupy places in upcoming developments across Liverpool and other major UK cities.”

Outdoor Megastore was set up 21 years ago and was a £3m turnover company.

However, it had suffered from increased competition as major retailing rivals moved into the market.

We have just evaluated 243 client satisfaction questionnaires, which have been returned by clients in the 12 months to September 2014.

219 were 'very satisfied' with our service and 20 'satisfied'.

Paul Bibby (Managing Partner) said "Businesses at large would give their right arm for over 90% of their clients indicating that they were very satisfied with service. A 98% satisfaction rating is fantastic."
He continued "Everyone is to be congratulated because client satisfaction is all about service across the board, not simply the application of legal knowledge. That comes from reception, telephone manner, willingness to help and responsiveness."

A breakdown of the results are provided in the table below.
