Tiso Group, the outdoor adventure retail specialist, has confirmed it will open one of its Outdoor Experience stores in the highland town of Aviemore within the Cairngorms National Park.
Tiso Aviemore Outdoor Experience, located within the new £10m Myrtefield Retail Park off Grampian Road, will incorporate the specialist key components of Tiso, Alpine Bikes and Blues the Ski Shop, together with a café and soft play area.
The Group, which currently operates 15 stores across Scotland, anticipates that the new store will create in the region of 30 jobs locally.
This latest evolution of its established Outdoor Experience concept will span a ground and mezzanine floor creating approximately 12,000 square feet of retail space.
At the store, experienced and qualified technicians will provide full ski and bike servicing, in addition to bike and boot fitting.
Visitors will have access to an adventure themed soft play area and a wide range of freshly prepared food and drinks in the Explorer Café.
Chris Tiso, CEO of Tiso Group said: “I am immensely proud to confirm the opening of our exciting new Tiso Aviemore Outdoor Experience store. Aviemore is Scotland’s adventure capital and is renowned as a destination for people of all ages to access and enjoy the variety offered by the local mountains, forests, lochs and rivers.
“The area already attracts in excess of 1 million visitors annually and with its diverse attractions and the on-going dualling of the A9, we can expect more people coming to explore an area renowned for climbing, winter-sports, cycling and watersports.
“Opening an Outdoor Experience store in Aviemore is the natural next step for us. I look forward to welcoming customers - new and existing - to our store and for Tiso to complement the choice and knowledge offered by local businesses as part of the wider outdoor community.”
