Fat Stores

You will have already been in one of our stores either for a browse or to buy some great kit. We’ve come a long way from selling a few sweatshirts out of a rucksack back in '88. Our growth story continues and with the opening 15 -20 stores every year we now have a portfolio of over 140 stores!

Our stores are typically based in market towns and activity areas (such as the coast and ski resorts). This means we stay close to our loyal customers with many new customers discovering our brand.

Fat Face has gone global. In 2006 we opened stores in the Middle East, including Dubai and Quatar, and we’re expanding into both Malaysia and Singapore. We’ve also built some bigger stores into our portfolio, to enable us to showcase where we are taking Fat Face in the future. Why not check out our Active Lifestyle Store in Exeter, which covers 3 floors over 6600 sq ft and has an extended range of kit and hardware!

We’re all about delivering a differentiated customer experience, from the kit to the visual merchandising and more importantly through our talented, dedicated and passionate crew. If you live the lifestyle, or really just relate to it, then Fat Face is the place for you.
