Salomon USA Announces Flagship Store’s Grand Opening Event
I’m hoping I can sneak away this weekend to attend. Ironically, Mrs. Outsider was up there just yesterday, and reported back that it’s a worthy destination for outdoor enthusiasts.
The community is invited to celebrate the retail milestone
Ogden, UT—May 25, 2012—Salomon USA’s first flagship store opened earlier this spring and has been a significant attraction at Salt Lake City’s City Creek Shopping Center. On June 2, Salomon and its parent company, Amer Sports Winter and Outdoor Americas, (ASWO) are inviting the community to celebrate the milestone with a special Grand Opening Celebration.
GRAND OPENING OF SALOMON STORE, CITY CREEK SHOPPING CENTER
DATE: JUNE 2, 2012
ADDRESS: 50 South Main Street, Salt Lake City, UT Store located at: East Block, Level 2
The Grand Opening Celebration is open to the public. Guests will be able to talk with Salomon product experts, enjoy refreshments and music and win great prizes including outdoor gear and an opportunity to go on a trail run with a member of Salomon’s pro running team.
“In its first two months of operation, the Salomon Store at City Creek has certainly offered our consumers a more rounded brand experience, as we planned,” says Tim Wakaruk, Director of Retail Operations for ASWO. “As we continue to work collaboratively with our current retail, wholesale and online partners as well as our own ecommerce strategy, we’re ultimately able to grow the industry. But right now it’s just time to thank our customers, industry friends, retail neighbors and the community as a whole with a fun party at the store.”
The Salomon Store at City Creek Shopping Center carries Salomon apparel, footwear and other softgoods items found on the Salomon website. While Salomon hardgoods are not available for sale at the City Creek location, consumers are referred to the authorized Salomon dealers around the state of Utah. This allows consumers the benefits of world-class boot fitters and being custom fit for their alpine, Nordic and snowboard needs. The store is outfitted with Salomon’s latest generation fixtures as part of a global Salomon fixture launch featuring digital technology and tactile displays.
