We're very excited to announce that our fifth Alpkit store will be opening in Edinburgh, early 2021!
Capital of Scotland, home of the Scottish Parliament, a massive, great castle... and now our first Alpkit store in Scotland! Crammed to corners with kit, the new Edinburgh store will include a Repair Station, a Sonder Bikes showroom, and all the help and advice (and cups of tea!) you'd expect from an Alpkit shop.
We've come a long way since our flagship Hathersage store opened in Spring 2021. Scotland's lochs, woods and mountains have always held an allure for us, so it was inevitable that our zigging and zagging would take us over the border eventually!
There's so much to love about Scotland and what it can offer to those passionate about the outdoors. It might be a large city, but Edinburgh is a fantastic base to Go Nice Places and Do Good Things from. The Pentland Hills are on our doorstep for running and walking, there's a rugged coastline for swimming in easy reach, and some fantastic mountain biking in the Borders just a short drive away.
Everything is coming together at a lightning place so we plan to open very early 2021. Keep your eyes peeled for more info soon!
