Clothes-only first for Snow + Rock

Outdoor and adventure sports retailer Snow + Rock will open two stores this year, including its first clothing-only shop.

A 930 sq m store is scheduled for Greater Manchester in October, when the other new outlet will also open on London's Kings Road.

The latter shop, selling clothes only, will be in the King's Road Sporting Club. At 185 sq m it will be a fifth of the size of Snow + Rock's standard stores. It will only open for seven months of the year, moving out after each winter when there is likely to be less demand.

The retailer will open a new headquarters and distribution centre in Guildford in July.
