SEATTLE, WA â€“ STANLEY, a brand of PMI, invites attendees of the 2013 Winter Market Outdoor Retailer Show to join them in a toast to commemorate their 100th anniversary. On Thursday, January 24, 2013 (day two), show attendees will meet at and around the STANLEY booth (21001) for a whiskey toast at 4:15pm. A shot of High West Whiskey in a keepsake signature STANLEY shot glass will be followed by beer, food and a live performance by rockabilly local favorites, Ugly Valley Boys.
â€œWe are thrilled to celebrate this huge milestone with the industry. From the workplace to the mountains our products have fueled countless outdoor adventures and shared memories. Celebrating our 100 years with those who helped make it possible is our way of saying thanks to our retailers and industry friends who have supported us through the years.
