Thrill-seekers and outdoor enthusiasts are set to enjoy an immersive new shopping experience with the launch of the action-packed Pro superstore.
Showcasing the very best in specialist outdoor gear, plus top-of-the-range equestrian, fishing and climbing equipment, the 17,700 square-foot Pro store has recently opened in Shirebrook, Derbyshire.
Certain to attract adventurers from far and wide, the high-spec store will even have two outdoor climbing walls so customers can ‘try before they buy.’ A static wall and rotating tread wall will enable climbers to test out kit under careful supervision by staff, so they can feel confident about purchasing everything from harnesses and belts to ropes and helmets.
As a treasure trove of leisurewear for every age, the Pro store will stock the nation’s favourite outdoor brands – including Salomon, Columbia, Marmot, Helly Hansen, Millet and Terra Nova. Durable walking shoes and boots will line up alongside all-weather jackets and fleeces – vital for seasoned explorers, casual weekend walkers and active kids. Accessories will include hardy rucksacks and packs, also designed to withstand the elements.
Fishing fans will improve their chances of a bumper catch with state-of-the-art rods and reels from Ridge Monkey, Chub, JRC, Maver and Shakespeare, as well as hooks, lines and other tackle must-haves. There’s a wide variety of waterproof clothing and practical footwear for fishing excursions too, while extras come care of giant umbrellas and shelters, as well as comfy chairs and versatile fishing bags.
Equestrian-lovers will be just as well served by the new Pro store, with a select range of clothing and accessories from the likes of Musto, Eskadron, Pikeur, Jack Murphy, Hackett, Ariat, Dublin, Just Togs, Hurlington Polo and Platinum. The collection features high-quality riding and country boots, plus breeches, jodhpurs, body protectors and a selection of all-important helmets. Other equine essentials include cosy turnout rugs for all seasons, as well as lead ropes, bridles and collars.
A spokesperson for Pro said: “Our new superstore is a great addition to the county’s retail scene, bringing the worlds of outdoor leisure, equestrian, fishing and climbing together under one giant roof.
“Not only will Pro offer an unrivalled choice of premium specialist brands, but our prices will be very competitive too.”
