Free Merch Awaits Hikers Who Trek Wilderness to Access Pop-Up Stores
Swedish brand Peak Performance rewards hikers who challenge themselves to find beauty at magical hours
Tucked away in the wilderness is something unexpected: a store where everything is free. Sound too good to be true? The trek to these special spots may be a challenge, but also a reward in itself. In a win-win for hikers, the Swedish outdoor outfitters Peak Performance have partnered with ADS&PR and Perfect Fools Stockholm to offer secret “pop-up stores” around the continent twice a day at “magical hours” of visual beauty and solitude.
When the promotion started, there were fifteen of these shops scattered around 11 countries, including Japan, the Middle East, Austria, Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland. Now only a couple of countries in central Europe remain. The locations, which were all selected by Peak Performance's team of athletes, runners, free riders, golfers and members in our adventure race team for their views, include mountain tops, a golf course and a lighthouse on a small island.
