Climbers Shop Launch Mobile Site

image Here at www.climbers-shop.com, we work very hard to make sure the website looks good and has all the latest and best outdoor gear on it. We are fortunate to have a good web design team behind us who have enabled us to try out new things and innovations on the site, often ahead of the crowd. That’s why we were so keen to get a mobile friendly site up as soon as possible.

We noticed a year or so ago that people were starting to use iPhones and other mobiles to surf our site (yes, we can see that amount of detail, it’s a bit like the MI5 here!) but when we tried it, it was often a little clunky and loaded slower than you would wish. We therefore decided to strip out all the unnecessary bits and bobs and make a fast & light site for those of you who have smartphones, which is more and more these days.

You can therefore now search the products we stock at www.climbers-shop.com/mobile from any smartphone, which will show you the top sellers, allow you to browse and search our huge range of outdoor gear. In time we will try and get more on the site, such as the webcam and the gear guides, but we don’t want to overload it – it is Fast & Light after all!

We would appreciate any feedback you have about the site, and how it works. If you need an incentive to use it, we are actually offering an initial discount of £5 off all orders over £25 placed on the mobile site when you use the code: mobile5
