Customer Feedback

"When I'm passing Fort Bill I always drop into your shop, despite working in the outdoor gear capital of NW England (Ambleside). You always have a really good selection of kit that is actually geared towards outdoor use rather than fashion. And your staff are super helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. So I guess I shouldn't have been surprised at such great service."

Refill- All of our stores take part in the Refill scheme allowing you to refill your water bottle for free. Ask a member of staff for more information, alternatively if you can see a water fountain, help yourself.
