About Us


How it all began

Almost 40 years ago, in the heart of Tyneside, a couple set up their business in Newcastle’s bustling Grainger Market. The company, called Market Leisure, supplied reasonably priced outerwear and outdoor equipment to the good people of Newcastle and the North East of England. As Market Leisure grew and grew, son Paul joined the family business and helped to turn it into an empire. Great Outdoors Superstore UK was born. 


Where can I find Great Outdoors Superstore UK?

Market Leisure, the stall where it all began, is still part of the business and can be found catering to its loyal customers in Newcastle’s City Centre.


Staying true to its North East heritage, Great Outdoors Superstore can be found in the heart of Tyneside, too, as part of the North Tyne Industrial Estate. Serving customers locally and now with a successful online presence and distribution centre, fulfilling orders around the UK and across the globe, the business stocks over 70 industry-leading outdoor brands, including Didriksons, Montane, Jack Wolfskin, The North Face, Berghaus and Trespass.
