Meet the Open Airists: Hector
This week it’s Fellrunner and climber Hector.
Hi, I’m Hector. I’ve worked at Open Air for the past 3 years. I started at the shop working weekends whilst at college, and now work on the shop floor over my university holidays. I work all round the shop, but am most at home in the boot shop, or selling more technical climbing and hiking gear in our main store.
I’d like to think I am an outdoor enthusiast, a keen trail-runner, climber and hiker. In the UK my go-to destination would definitely be the Lake District. I love the feeling of heading out with just a pair of trainers and a little food to cover big distances through the mountains!
It is always great selling gear in the shop, and hearing from customers where what they are buying is going to be put to use. It’s a great feeling having customers pop back into the shop after a trip and hearing how they have got on!
