Well you can’t miss it can you?

It’s Rohan Long Preston which has many claims to fame.
None the least it was the very first Rohan Shop to open.

The first of 55 Rohan shops that have followed in the years since it opened in 1983.
Many of the worlds mountaineers, adventurers, alpinist and climbers have passed through the doors over the years.

Rohanists memories of Long Preston are extensive…
The first shop layout, no garments on display, the electric blinds that rose and fell on demand, revealing the Rohan range. The first team that greeted visitors Chris, Gail, the Rudlers, Colin, James and the Howcrofts. O’h  Sally and Kate the four legged team.

The most frequently asked question when the shop first opened Why Long Preston?

Second question. Where is the Rohan Range?

The reason we adopted this unique approach was simple. We needed to learn from our customers and listen to them. First came the dialog. During the conversations the blinds lifted and the garments revealed. It worked well.

Do you have any early memories of Long Preston back in the day?     

Today Rohan Long Preston is very smart and proud of its heritage.
