Route One was originally founded in 1989, with their first store above a grocery store in Bath. Started by two ex city-workers, this company has grown from humble beginnings into one of the largest independent retailers in the UK. Selling street and skate fashion, from over 450 brands, Route One takes inspiration from the Californian life. Along with their clothing and footwear ranges, they also sell gadgets, toys and gifts, accessories and skateboards.
The name Route One came from the way the company sourced their products, directly from USA, Europe and Asia. Their team searches for the best products available, before finding the quickest way of getting them to the UK; the one route. This commitment to being the first is something the company still aims for today, with their website stocking hundreds of products in the UK before anyone else.
