80 Years and Counting!

e-OUTDOOR™ is an independent outdoor clothing and footwear retailer. The company is owned and run by White & Bishop Limited.

In 1930 Mr White opened shop at number 13 Bridge Street in Northampton. He sold practical country clothes, scout uniforms and camping equipment. After a few years, with hard work and a good location, the business began to grow along with its reputation.

History of White & Bishop

The business survived by keeping pace with modern trends and products. The shop itself had many cosmetic changes, going through various improvements to the shop front. On the 25th May 1950, it was formed into a limited company and years later the business was handed down to Mr White's son.

As demand for business increased so did the company size. The shops next door, 15 and 17, were bought and a new store was opened in Rugby. Number 17 Bridge Street was developed to specialise solely in outdoor gear and more staff were employed.

MOVING TO e-OUTDOOR

We have been selling online since 2002. In recent years, as demand on the web has grown, we have fully adopted the name of our website "e-OUTDOOR". Loyal, repeat customers will still know us as White & Bishop, but our new signs and web presence is all branded to e-OUTDOOR.

In 2016 we moved to bigger premises in Daventry. Today, we are still a fully independent business based in the United Kingdom. Keeping up with the tradition of providing an extensive range of stock we sell all the top brands in the outdoor market. Our rich history in the outdoors and brands like Barbour, The North Face, Mountain Equipment and Rab, grant us a platform for equipping our customers with high-quality products.

I have been working for e-OUTDOOR since the summer of 2016 simply because I love being outdoors, especially walking with a backpack. I have no favourite landscape, I love the variety of the UK. Moors, mountains, fields or forests, even the beach! Just take me there.

Keen wild camper and dad. I like to walk, but you can't beat sitting up a tree, staring at the clouds or slinging up a hammock for star gazing. Forests beat mountains every time.

Favourite things? - walking in the rain, Favourite places? Anywhere and everywhere green. I love walking by the water, wild swimming, and discovering hidden places off the beaten track. 


Sustainability

We believe sustainability is more than a buzz word, and want to play our part. This starts by looking at the steps that we can make on this journey. To learn how to improve the methods and impact we have on the planet.
