New stocks of Buff, Helly Hansen & Outdoor Designs in Peebles

We promised we would keep customers up to date with the erratic deliveries we've been receiving recently. The back log from the transport difficulties here in Scotland a couple of weeks ago is now easing and this means that we currently have good stocks of Buff products, including standard, junior, merino and polar versions
We've also had a delivery of base layers from Helly Hansen. This includes the lightweight stripe crew necks and fly pants at £25 each

The Prowool Freeze half zip at £50 is also back in stock
When the first lot of snow came at the end of November lots of people found that wellies just weren't warm enough and found that they got on better with their walking boots and then gaiters to keep the snow out. We ran out of gaiters a coulpe of weeks ago as a result but we now also have them back in stock starting at £15 for the Tundra gaiter, £17 for the front fastening Alpine gaiter and £23 for the eVent Perma gaiter

So that takes care of the deliveries that have bee…

Festive Season Opening Hours in Peebles

Here's the details of our opening hours over the holiday period:

Winter Edition of Scotland Outdoors now in store

Slightly delayed by all that snow, the Winter edition of Scotland Outdoors is now available in our Peebles store, packed with inspirational ideas for enjoying the best of Scotland this winter.

They've arrived- The North Face Tent Mules are in Peebles

Parcelforce made it through the snow and ice that's got central Scotland grid locked and we now have The North Face Tent Mules available in Peebles. Hurry because we don't expect stocks to last long.

Update on The North Face Tent Mules

We have quite a few customers waiting for our stock of The North Face Tent Mules (or North Face slippers to most people) to arrive in our Peebles branch.

We spoke to our distributor at the end of last week and they were on their way to us at that time. We expect to have them available to sell in a few days, but deliveries are being severley hampered by the bad weather so we can't confirm the exact date at this time. We will update this blog when we have them and also our Facebook page.

Late Night Opening for Christmas Lights switch-on

With weather like this it's hard not to get into the Christmas Spirit and Peebles Christmas Lights are being switched on tonight. In common with most shops in the town we'll be open from 6:30pm - 8:30pm, a chance to get in out of the cold and do a spot of Christmas shopping too.

Business as Usual in Bad Weather

It hardly seems any time since we were last posting on this subject but we want to assure all our customers that despite the current bad weather we are very much open for business, in both Harrogate and Peebles. We all live within walking distance of the shops so we are able to get there even when its snowy (whether you can reach us or not is, of course, another matter!). Scheduled deliveries to us are currently being delayed to varying degrees- so if you need us to order anything, please ensure you leave a little leeway in your timescale to take this into account.
