But if you’ve ever been to the Basement, you probably know that that description doesn’t really do us justice.
Walk into one of our stores and you know immediately that this will be a different shopping experience. You may not be able to pinpoint why, but you’ll probably sense it.
We have great prices, but everything is top quality. Our stores are huge, but they feel and act like small shops. We make all of our signs, racks, fixtures and displays by hand in our wood and metal shop.
We are a community center, a hangout, a hub. Our stores are like a second home to local athletes and groups who use our space daily for club meetings, to host potlucks, to start a workout from our front doors, or to pick up some tips at a speaker series event.
Our employees are local coaches, instructors, outdoor enthusiasts, teachers, students. We are all active in the community and in our sports and activities. We use the product we sell.
We know most people are inside the store so they can get outside the store. We know because we’re out on the trails, in the Bay and on the roads with them. You’re also likely to spot our little green tent at local events. When you do, come on by, say hello, and tell us how your season is shaping up. We’d love to chat.
