Specialist sports retailer has expanded its range of goods as part of its strategic focus to grow the business.
One Sports Warehouse, based on the Drum Industrial Estate in Chester-le-Street, has announced it has struck a deal with ASICS Group to feature its sporting footwear range in their store.
The retailer, which specialises in hockey and sports equipment, has enjoyed strong growth in the last year, bucking the adverse trading conditions experienced by many other retailers.
This latest addition to its range of goods joins brands including Grays, Osaka, Ritual and OBO.
Simon Lee, Managing Director, said: “Expanding the product offering for our customers is key in our plans to grow the business and ensure we provide the best possible sportswear and equipment. Our customers, whom range from families, sports enthusiasts and teams, expect to pick from the best sports and hockey gear – so that’s exactly what we’re providing!”
The company has already increased its turnover by 25 per cent and grown its workforce by over 25 per cent in the last 24 months.
Other key developments in their expansion plans have included the launch of its ecommerce website and the relocation of its retail unit on the Drum Industrial Estate.
Simon concluded: “We have settled into our unit on the Drum Industrial Estate and have seen the business exceed our expectations over the past year. Our ecommerce website has also been part of our recipe for success and has allowed us to establish new points of contact with our customers.
“We’re delighted with our progress and are very excited about our future plans, which include expanding our retail range even further to include netball sportswear and equipment.”
