Making a Visit to Alpkit Metrocentre a Safe One

To ensure the safety of all our staff and customers, we're implementing new measures across our stores:

  1. A limit on the number of customers in store at once to allow for ample space for social distancing
  2. Screens where appropriate (such as at the tills and repair stations)
  3. Handwash and sanitising stations on entrance and around each store
  4. A separate entrance and exit where possible
  5. Re-configured layout to help open up floor space (where possible) and make social distancing easier
  6. One-way systems in place where appropriate
  7. Signs and notices to help keep everyone informed

We are cram packed full of Alpkit gear goodness!

Think of it as our North East base camp, a really well-equipped base camp with the entire Alpkit product range inside, from the teeniest Kraku stove to our fully featured Definition waterproof: you can jump around on the bouldering pads, try on a wetsuit, fit our bikepacking luggage on your bike or snuggle up in a expedition sleeping bag.

Store Events

We're constantly looking for an excuse to get out and about into Northumberland! You too huh? We run courses, events and lectures throughout the year to fulfil our cravings for adventure and inspiration, and meet a few new people whilst we're at it. If that sounds like it might be your jam, phone the store or email for more information and bookings.
