The New Chapter!



It is with heavy hearts that we share the news that we have closed our beloved store Scout, in the form of what you have grown to know and love.

We recently received the news that the building we’ve called home for 21 years (first as Abicus and the last 8.5 years as Scout) has been sold and the new owner wishes to occupy.

It is especially sad as we’ve never been so happy with Scout’s offering of brands, our team, the fit-out, and also in-store trade has been exceptional!

However, we’re looking for the silver linings. This predicament is beyond our control and we can’t help but feel it’s actually an ideal opportunity to more deeply consider our retail footprint.

We’ve decided to merge with our sister store Abicus, bringing the majority of our cherished roster of Scout brands to create the ultimate offering in one store, under one roof!

It is also an opportunity for us to take a pause and to rebalance our priorities between family and business. After 20+ years in retail, constantly evolving and growing our businesses, we can’t help but feel this is a chance to further explore and enjoy the many other things in life that make our heart sing.

And yes! We’ll be retaining our amazing Scout team by moving them into new roles at Abicus. Which means the world to us… talk about creating our dream team!

Scout closed on Sunday 27th June, 2021, however we look forward to welcoming all of our wonderful Scout customers with open arms just across the road at Abicus. @abicus_newcastle

Our deepest thanks to everyone that has supported Scout to date… it has been an absolute joy!

Xx Tiff & Tim
