OUTDOOR retailer Regatta is due to relocate to a larger shop in Hereford.

Signs have been in place at its current site on the corner of High Street and Broad Street for a while stating that it was relocating. 

The retailer, which sells products such as waterproof and breathable jackets, fleeces, trousers, footwear and camping equipment will be moving to the former Monsoon shop in High Town. 


It is understood that it had been eyeing it for a number of months, but various hold ups delayed the move. 

However, signs are now in place at the empty unit next to the o2 phone shop stating that Regatta will be moving in, while its current shop says it will close in two weeks. 

The old Monsoon shop has been empty for three years after the clothing firm went into administration

It means that Regatta will be next door to where fellow outdoor retailer, Mountain Warehouse used to be before it decided to relocate to the city's Old Market. 

The latter now occupies a large space that used to be the home of Outfit, Wallis, Miss Selfridge, Dorothy Perkins and Burton.
