Inspiring individuals to enjoy outdoor products has been a family tradition for us. Blaine’s father, Howard, created a foundation & helped shape key essentials to success. There have been many changes since those days, but some of the key fundamentals we practice remain: innovation, commitment to detail, creation of partnerships & hands on professionalism. Tradition & legacy are important to encourage but in today's every changing outdoor retailer landscape we need to be adaptable, progressive & promote staff empowerment to succeed. Whether you’re a dealer, a vendor or an outdoor enthusiast we will strive to be friendly, insightful and enthusiastic to achieve positive results.
