Outdoor retailer Summit Sports announced its acquisition of Kentucky-based Loucon, LLC and its SnowSportDeals.com, which is known for used and closeout snow and sports equipment. The deal comes nearly a year after Summit’s acquisition of Texas-based Austin Canoe & Kayak (ACK).
Summit Sports purchased Loucon in May of 2017. The business will continue to operate with its previous owner, Chris Chapman, as general manager. Loucon’s 40,000 square foot warehouse will allow for Summit Sports to increase available inventory for all its brands and increase its distribution footprint with improved expediting shipping services, said the company. According to FedEx, over 70% of the U.S. is within a two day shipping window from this location.
