WEARE OUTDOOR “Outdoor Retailer is the only place to get the pulse of the industry and to understand what is going on with the vendors and who's making dramatic steps in some new direction, and I love it for that very reason. I get inspired. Conrad Anker, who's been to our store many times, I think said it best, ‘It's like a tribal gathering,’ and that's what I love about it. It brings a lot of like-minded people into one place and it's hard to replace that anywhere else.”

Chattanooga, Tennessee Stores: 6 + www.rockcreek.com Doors Opened: 1987 Years at Outdoor Retailer: 28 “Relationships are very, very important to Rock/Creek. Relationships inside our community here in Chattanooga, but also the relationships that we have with our vendors. They know us; they know where our interests are; they know where we can have an impact in our community, and we work closely with them philanthropically to improve our access to the outdoors.”

Working closely with the land owner and their outdoor industry partners, Rock/Creek pulled together a very unique partnership to permanently open a very prestigious rock climbing area to the entire community – Stone Fort. “Outdoor industry vendors are looking for ways to partner with their retailers to affect positive change in these local communities. It’s part of the lifeblood of this industry to find those causes, those interests, and help them come to fruition. Without Outdoor Retailer, without a place for both retailers and vendors to come together and work together, opportunities like Stone Fort would never be realized. I think getting us together twice a year is so important to our community and outdoor communities throughout the United States.” – Chad Wykle, Rock/Creek

“This was my 28th time attending Outdoor Retailer, and it was awesome! It’s always good to find new stuff. We’re seeing a lot of lumberjack and woodsman inspired prints. It’s been growing for a couple of years and it’s getting huge, in fact, I’ve been inspired to grow a beard. But seriously, the whole urban theme is everywhere. It’s pretty cool. Technical packs or things that look technical are not what people want to buy. They want to buy items with leather patches and old school metal buckles. I think people are looking for retro-inspired more earthy stuff and I’m finding it here…in every booth and those that aren't are missing it.” —Tyler Conlin, Got Your Gear
