As there are few outdoor shops around its ok.
This is part of JD sports group. Effectively aimed at outdoor clothing as everyday wear, or for those once a year trips to the countryside. …

This place is fine until something goes wrong with your product. Poor customer resolution for a coat with poor stitching quality. Will be shopping elsewhere in the future. Wouldn’t take the risk

Two of us in looking for footwear, wanted to try multiple different styles in different sizes, Ryan was super patient and helpful in getting all the different options while my wife and I both dithered. Needless to say it wasn’t just us that he was helping but several other customers all at the same time.

They might be cheap – but the after-sales service is appalling. Unhelpful replies from uncaring people. The “computer says no” sketched in Little Britain were obviously based on the Ultimate Outdoors customer service team.

A nice clean and tidy store with friendly staff. They had what we needed (and even price matched the fabsil that I was going to buy elsewhere). Overall a great store with nice staff on a good retail park.

Ultimate outdoors with Black’s prices.
Advertise boots for £80 get to the shop £125.
Black’s are part of the group but store assistant said Riverside shop is ultimate outdoors.

Good customer service and a good range of kit. It’s probably the only place to buy good quality outdoor gear in Northampton and is always worth a look before heading elsewhere. They usually have a good selection of offers on the sales rack by the door.

There was nothing ultimate about this shop on the day we visited (Sunday 19th August). The shop is smaller than anticipated with such a grand name. The only tent on display was a weary weathered display air tent outside. Once inside it …

Have always found them helpful and friendly, with a ‘how did we do’ system in place at the point of purchase (you rate the service using the card reader before the actual purchase).

January sales, good selection and most items 50% off. Staff polite and welcoming. Just be prepared to hunt for that bargain. Good selection of rucksacks and camp gear but can be a little pricey.

Millets and Blacks combined. Friendly staff who always greet you as you walk in, plenty of items on offer with some good deals every now and then. But usually the items are really expensive if there are no discounts.

Really friendly and helpful staff. They sorted out a tent pole issue without fuss and the manager went above and beyond to ensure I was not inconvenienced. You don’t get customer service like this too often nowadays.

Wanted to buy grey north face shorts.
It’s summer and had one pair not in my size
Asked staff and I can’t believe how unhelpful they was and so so missable.
I spend a lot of time outdoors but will not ever go to this sad place again.

Now I remember why I don’t shop in blacks and usually use somewhere like Cotswold Outdoors. Totally clueless staff. Won’t answer phone and then no idea if they have way of checking stock.!

Terrible as employers, would not recommend working here. They have no understanding or respect for mental health, and ignore the needs of employees rather than helping and guiding.

If the outdoors is for you then, this would be ok. Clothes are a bit on the expensive side but there are other things there too (tents, bags etc..)
