About Outdoor Warehouse and its values
In the late 1990s consolidation of various outdoor and sports outlets resulted in the creation of a dedicated chain of outdoor stores within the Moresport Group, which also owns Sportsmans Warehouse. Outdoor Warehouse was born, a company wholly focused on the core business of camping, hiking, off-road and the general open-air recreation so beloved of South Africans.
The ‘warehouse’ approach was selected in order to provide a one-stop destination store with the kind of wide, quality range that would satisfy keen local outdoor enthusiasts. However, within the size and scope of this concept, care has been taken to incorporate striking interior design, specialist ‘stations’ for the more technical products, attractive change-rooms and a general layout that’s easy and exciting to navigate.
As a specialist outdoor business, Outdoor Warehouse is based on three pillars of belief:
Passion for the outdoors is prime
Come into the store and you’ll see what we mean. We’re interested in your plans and your needs. We’re enthusiastic about the wide range of locales and activities offered in Southern Africa (and further afield) and we’re longing to talk to you.
Wide range and good quality are non-negotiable
We source the kind of well-designed, durable products that won’t let you down when you need them most. We research the latest technology, but we also appreciate when tried and tested traditional ways are best. Our ranges are not just wide, but also deep, as far as level of technology and price are concerned – and we’ll guide you to your best choice.
Expert advice and trained staff are essential
Our carefully selected staff are initially thoroughly trained and then updated twice-weekly with instruction sessions where new technology is explored and seasonal priorities and ranges analysed in detail. Certain specialist staff in areas such as GPS hardware, software and mapping liaise regularly with suppliers to keep up with fast-moving product development. We have also drawn up detailed Checklists for camping, hiking, motorcycle touring and cross-border travel and these are available both on this site and in store.
