My boys love Patagonia, North Face and those kinds of winter wear, as they both go to school in the Carolinas. We take them shopping here frequently when they are home, and they have some GREAT sales too. The staff is super friendly; nice to support a local small business owner.

Went here through a Meetup for a first time paddle boarding lesson. They have a small lake behind the store where they teach you how to properly and safely go paddle boarding. The instructors took the time to show correct form, balance, and how to properly paddle. Would love to do this again some time. Thanks to Matt, Kate, and... More
