Tiso to open Outdoor Experience concept in Aviemore
Tiso Group, the Scottish outdoor adventure retail specialist, is to open one of its Outdoor Experience stores in the highland town of Aviemore within the Cairngorms National Park.
Due to open next year, Tiso Aviemore Outdoor Experience will be situated within the new £10 million Myrtefield Retail Park off the town’s Grampian Road.
This latest evolution of Tiso’s established Outdoor Experience concept will span a ground and mezzanine floor with around 12,000 square feet of retail space.
The store will incorporate the specialist key components of Tiso, Alpine Bikes and Blues the Ski Shop, together with a café and soft play area.
Walkers, mountaineers, skiers, bikers and watersport enthusiasts will all be catered for. The store will have experienced and qualified technicians providing full ski and bike servicing, in addition to bike and boot fitting.
Chris Tiso (pictured), chief executive 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 one million visitors annually and with its diverse attractions and the ongoing dualling of the A9, we can expect more people coming to explore an area renowned for climbing, winter-sports, cycling and watersports.“
Tiso was founded by the late Graham Tiso and his wife Maude in Edinburgh in 1962. The group now employs more than 300 people across Scotland and the Lake District where it owns the George Fisher outdoor store in Keswick.
JD Sports Fashion invested in Tiso in 2013 although Chris Tiso remains a significant shareholder.
