Grassroots Welcomes Six Retail Members

Grassroots Outdoor Alliance, the national organization dedicated to the health and growth of independent specialty retail, welcomed six new members ahead of its annual Grassroots Connect buying show, Nov. 1-5, 2019.

The new retail members include High Country Outfitters (Atlanta, Ga.), Jax Mercantile (La Porte, Colo.), Kristi Mountain Sports (Alamosa, Colo.), Mountain Sports (Arlington, Texas), Tahoe Mountain Sports (Truckee, Calif.) and Walkabout Outfitter (Lexington, Va.).

The additions elevate Grassroots Outdoor Alliance to 74 members and 144 doors nationwide.

“The growth of interest and membership in Grassroots Outdoor Alliance is a strong positive indicator for the broader outdoor industry. These are businesses that are already performing at a high level but are looking to deepen relationships and increase their business efficiencies,” said Dana Howe, retail relations manager for Grassroots Outdoor Alliance. 

The new member retailers first event will be at the fall 2019 Grassroots Connect buying show in Denver, Colo. The confirmed schedule for the event includes vendor move-in and member-only education seminars (Nov. 1, 2019); four days of pre-booked retailer and vendor meetings (Nov. 2-5, 2019); and vendor move-out (Nov. 5, 2019).
