Blacks Outdoors to open new store in Aintree


Outdoor retailer Blacks is delighted to announce that on 11 February it will be opening a new store, located in Aintree Shopping Park.  

With over 50 stores, Blacks are well known around the UK for offering an extensive range of quality outdoor equipment and clothing for the whole family. Stocking waterproof jackets, tents, walking boots, rucksacks and more, the new store will be the go to destination in Liverpool for outdoor enthusiasts.

The store itself takes the place of Maplin, creating circa 10 new jobs ranging from the Store Manager to weekend Sales Assistants.

This new 4,300sq ft store is an exciting addition to the portfolio, stocking a variety of desirable brands including The North Face and Berghaus, as well as trusted brands like Eurohike and Peter Storm.

The store offers a boot fitting service, as well as kiosks for ordering stock from the website’s extensive ranges. Shoppers can also order goods online and collect in the Aintree Blacks store for their convenience.

This is Blacks’ 58th store, and the company is expanding its presence throughout the UK.

Chris McGuinnity, head of retail at Blacks, commented: “Despite challenging circumstances in the current retail climate, we’re thrilled to be growing our UK store presence and are particularly happy to become a key part of the Aintree community.”

“Our store manager Martin Smith and his team are excited to open their doors and look after every customer that pays a visit.”

Over the weekend of 16-17t February, the Blacks marketing team will be giving out extra 20% off vouchers to celebrate their opening.
