Torpedo7 opens its largest store yet
It’s official. Our new flagship Torpedo7 store at Westgate Shopping Centre in Auckland is our largest one yet.
In fact, at 2300m2 it’s almost larger than two full-sized Olympic swimming pools standing side by side – not that you’d want to go swimming there, of course.
Instead, it’s packed full of outdoor adventure gear across bike, snow, water, camping, clothing, moto and fitness. Plus, the new store houses a specialist onsite bike and snow workshop, which will provide a range of gear repair, safety checks and maintenance services.
Torpedo7 CEO Tim Edwards said Westgate was a natural fit for the new store with endless options for adventure right on its doorstep. “West Auckland is fortunate to have a number of spectacular walks, bike trails and surf beaches just minutes away from the town centre. It’s no surprise it’s so popular with locals and visitors alike.”
“Our pop-up store in the same location proved popular and now we’re thrilled to open a permanent store and continue our close relationship with the local community.”
Torpedo7 Westgate store manager Jessica Keiller added: “West Auckland doesn’t shy away from adventure and we’re looking forward to giving our customers the chance to experience even more of our gear, coupled with our great range of in-store services. We’d encourage everyone to head in and say hello,” she says.
Our Westgate store, which employs 27 team members, is one of four brand-new Torpedo7 stores set to open across New Zealand this year. Other locations will be announced in the coming months.
