All of us at Alpkit are delighted that Country Walking have awarded us UK Brand of the Year in their end-of-year round-up.
This comes after a year in which we've reached some amazing milestones. We've awarded £500,000 to grassroots projects through the Alpkit Foundation. We've been certified as a partner of 1% For The Planet. We've brought wheel-building to the UK, right here in our workshop on the edge of the Peak District. We were highly commended at the edie Sustainability Awards. This week, we opened ownership up to our customers, smashing our fundraising target in just eight minutes. And so much more.
Country Walking said, “They’re big on sustainability, huge on customer service, which has helped them to win a lot of Best Retailer awards across the industry. And you’ll hardly ever find them at the expensive end of our tests; somehow they make great kit at way-below-average prices for outdoor gear.”
The thing gave us the broadest smile, though, is that they feel that buying from us is a genuine joy. And that’s the way it should be! Thank you so much.
