County Durham sports retailer set for national growth with new mobile store concept

A sports retailer based in County Durham is set to expand its national reach with a range of new initiatives.

One Sports Warehouse has plans to launch a mobile store that travels throughout the country in order to increase its national profile.

Based on the Drum Industrial Estate in Chester-le-Street, the firm offers a range of specialist sporting goods and equipment.

In addition to the mobile store, One Sports Warehouse has invested in an e-commerce website as well as expanding its range of stock.

Simon Lee, One Sports Warehouse managing director, commented: “As a company, we pride ourselves on our forward-thinking and we’ve always been early adopters of new technology and methods.

“Offering a wide range of hockey and netball equipment for our customers is our prime goal and making it easier for them to access this through our new online shop and mobile store makes absolute sense without needing to establish a physical office in another part of the country.”

The company received funding and support from Digital Drive County Durham to develop the online shop, a programme part financed by the European Regional Development Fund to help businesses in County Durham harness technology to boost growth.

Andrea McGuigan, business development area manager (North) for Business Durham, added: “It’s fabulous to see One Sports Warehouse achieving such exceptional success across the country while operating from their headquarters on the Drum Industrial Estate.

“The funded support available from Digital Drive County Durham aims to help business become more resilient, productive and competitive, and this is certainly the case here as One Sports Warehouse achieve their ambitious business goals!”
