One of New Zealand’s largest outdoor retailers is opening its doors in Northland for the first time.
Torpedo7 is set to open their first retail store in the Whangārei region on April 30.
Located in the city centre, the store will offer their entire range with a storefront inspired by popular hotspots in the region such as Pataua and Whangārei falls.
“Whether it’s a family camping trip at Kai Iwi lakes, a surf at Pataua North or a coastal hike, out team will make sure you’ve got what you need – and we’ll see you out there,” says Chief Operating Officer, Garth Sunderland.
He adds that Northland is a hotspot for outdoor activities, making it easier for locals to purchase from the Torpedo7 selection.
The new Whangārei store will be one of 23 Torpedo7 stores nationwide.
The store has employed 25 members, including Store Manager Ryan Wooloff who says the team have been busy preparing and are looking forward to sharing their knowledge with customers.
Alongside the entire Torpedo7 range, the store will also feature a specialist onsite bike and snow workshop, gear repair, safety check and maintenance services.
Bike hire will also be available.
Torpedo7 is a subsidiary of The Warehouse Group who also own retailers The Warehouse, Warehouse Stationary and Noel Leeming.
The Warehouse Group is one of the largest retailers in the country, with over 180 stores across all brands.
