Leading UK outdoor clothing and equipment firm GO Outdoors is accelerating its growth plans after agreeing a £33 million refinancing deal with Barclays.

The cash will fund further store expansion and refurbishment and development of GO Outdoors’ “multi-channel” operation - typically sales by mail order, through calls centres and over the internet. Go Outdoors, which started out in Sheffield in 1969, was advised by Stephen Ingram, from BHP Corporate Finance, and lawyers DLA Piper.
