A new store is hoping to drive up trade after opening at an outlet centre.

Golf Nation is the latest company to open at Royal Quays Outlet Centre in North Shields.

Northern Ireland natives Michael Morton and business partner, David Millsopp, come with a wealth of experience having established existing stores in Glasgow, Dublin, Belfast, Antrim, Livingston, and Sterling.

Michael, said: “We developed the business 18 years ago where we were primarily wholesalers of golf equipment in Ireland, as this developed we launched MD Golf, exporting golfing equipment across the world.

“14 months ago we decided to open our first Golf Nation store in Belfast which proved to be a huge success and we are delighted to come across to England to open a store at Royal Quays Outlet Centre.

“Golfers can expect to find a variety of brands such as Adidas, Callaway, Titleist plus much more. Our stores are renowned for offering top quality products at the lowest prices.

“Our location at Royal Quays is our first out of town venture. We chose the centre as it is very accessible and there are no other stores like ours nearby, we have a niche offering and we hope to attract a loyal custom base.”

Centre manager Judith Ramshaw said: “Golf Nation has settled in well to the centre and we are confident that they will attract a strong following as customers will enjoy low prices and quality products.

“There is a team of three people working within the store who are on-hand to provide guidance and advice when it comes to selecting equipment. We wish the team the best of luck with their latest venture.”
