Torpedo7 opens first store in Northland

Torpedo7 is expanding its nationwide footprint, with the Whangārei store being the first of several stores planned to open this year. The Whangārei Torpedo7 opened on Friday 29 April at the Okara Park shopping precinct, offering Northlanders a more convenient way to get their hands on outdoor adventure gear.

The spacious 1580m2 store features a refreshed natural look and feel that takes inspiration from various outdoor locations across the region, including Whangārei Falls and Pataua (Whangārei Heads), which celebrate the local community.

Garth Sutherland, Torpedo7 Chief Operating Officer, says Northland is a hotspot for outdoor adventures and locals can now choose from a wide selection of gear to suit.

“We’re excited to be opening our first store in Northland. Our team has been working hard to bring our wide range of outdoor adventure gear to town, so locals can easily get what they need to enjoy New Zealand’s epic outdoor playground.

“Some in the area may already shop with us online, but we're looking forward to opening a physical store in Whangārei, offering our customers access to our full range of gear. Whether it’s a family camping trip at Kai Iwi lakes, a surf at Pataua North, or a costal hike, our team will make sure you’ve got what you need – and we’ll see you out there!”

The store houses an onsite bike and snow workshop for customers wanting gear repaired, safety checks or maintenance services from specifically trained Bike Mechanics and Snow and Ski Technicians.

Ryan Wooloff, Torpedo7 Store Manager, says the team of twenty-five are looking forward to sharing their own outdoor passions and local knowledge with customers.

“Our team of keen adventurists have been busy preparing the store to welcome Northlanders. Customers can take advantage of our exclusive grand opening ‘Doorbuster Deals’ in-store until 2 May.”

The store located at 42 Port Road, Whangārei Central, offers a full range of Torpedo7 adventure gear, including bike, camping, water, apparel, snow and fitness gear and will be open seven days a week from 9am to 5.30pm.
