Wild Earth setting up camp at Skygate Home & Life
Monday 2 August 2021: Australia’s most comprehensive range of outdoor adventure gear is now available at Brisbane Airport, with Wild Earth opening a store at Skygate Home & Life.
Wild Earth held what was meant to be a grand opening event on Saturday 31 July, with shoppers treated to free activities, goodie bags, and amazing deals on outdoor gear.
The event was cut short at 10:30am following the announcement of the South East Queensland snap lockdown by the Queensland Government.
With an iconic store on the Gold Coast and more than 30,000 fans on their social media channels, Wild Earth has made a name for itself in the landscape of outdoor adventure retail and is now ready to tackle Brisbane.
Wild Earth Australia General Manager Chris Sommerville said the team can’t wait to meet more fellow adventurer lovers from Brisbane and Sunshine Coast in person once this lockdown is over.
“It’s been a long time coming and we’re stoked to be finally opening a new store in Brisbane. We love meeting our customers face-to-face and being able to give them personalised advice and fittings to ensure they have the best gear for their adventures.”
Wild Earth is a proud local, independent business that was founded in 2004 and offers weekly deals, competitive prices, and exceptional customer service linked with expert technical advice.
Customers who attended the opening event were greeted with free coffee and were very happy to take advantage of opening day deals before the announcement of the lockdown for 11 South East Queensland LGAs was announced and cut the event short.
The first 150 customers also received a goodie bag valued at almost $300, containing items from brands that are heavily featured in Wild Earth’s catalogue, including Salomon, The North Face, and Patagonia.
Brisbane Airport Corporation’s Executive General Manager Commercial, Martin Ryan, said Wild Earth adds to the exciting mix of retail offerings available at the Skygate precinct
“We are proud to welcome Wild Earth amongst the list of well-known brands here at Skygate Home & Life,” Mr Ryan said.
“The great variety of stores located across Skygate and Skygate Home & Life keeps getting better, and we are seeing an increase in the number of customers coming through our doors every year,” Mr Ryan said.
