Rohan Truro closed on 29th August 2016
Rohan Truro is situated within Penrose Outdoors, Cornwalls premier independent outdoor store.
Our shop was opened in 1987/88. As you can see by the photo, the striking building was an old banana warehouse in former days. Rohan is situated in a spacious, bright and well stocked area within the main store.
The store has stocked almost all of the Rohan range since 1987, and still holds nearly all the range in a freshly refitted and enlarged store within Penrose Outdoors great outdoor shop.
Jeremy has been selling Rohan since… possibly the dark ages?… and will be able to give you all the advice you’ll ever need (about Rohan, that is.)
