Who are we? We originate from the UK where we have a very strong market presence. New Zealand is a great territory for us with its beautiful green landscape, and we are aiming for our next goal of 20 stores. 

At 380+ stores globally and over 3000 employees we are a leading outdoor retailer, with an always-evolving attitude.  You can find out about our fantastic own-brand products, as well as our newly launched brands, such as Animal, at www.mountainwarehouse.com.  We’re working hard on sustainability, introducing more and more organic and recycled products- One Planet. Check out our “Inside the Outdoors” section, where you can explore the outdoors, find expert advice on how to choose your ski pants or top tips for dog owners, and learn about some of our charity ventures.

  • International- we have stores in the UK, in Europe across Poland, Germany and Austria, and across the pond in Canada and the USA. New Zealand is our latest venture.
  • Animal was acquired by Mountain Warehouse and re-launched in the Summer of 2021, initially with an online presence only, before we moved to showcasing a range in some of our stores. We are so excited to be opening our first UK stores.
