Outdoor specialist Mountain Warehouse has embarked on a Scottish expansion spree.

The retailer has acquired stores in Stirling's Thistle Centre, Edinburgh's St James Shopping Centre, East Kilbride's Olympia Mall, Gordon Street in Glasgow and the Eastgate Shopping Centre in Inverness.

The company, which sells outdoor clothing and accessories, is now looking for other Scottish locations to take advantage of the strong outdoor market in the country.

SGM acted for the retailer on four of the deals.
