Award Winning Outdoor Retailer Continues Expansion to Northeast San Antonio, Texas with Fifth Store

Austin, Texas - Outdoor retailer, Austin Canoe and Kayak (ACK), a division of MSP Holdings LLC, announced today plans to open a 5th location in northwest San Antonio, Texas. ACK San Antonio will be conveniently located at 12770 Cimarron Path, just off I-10, south of 1604. The 5,000 square-foot store will provide outdoor enthusiasts with one-stop-shopping for top name brands such as Hobie, Wilderness Systems, and Yeti Coolers. In addition to a broad selection of kayaks, stand up paddle boards, camping and other outdoor gear, ACK San Antonio will offer kayak and SUP rentals as well as installation and repair services.

Since its initial store opening over 20 years ago, ACK has been devoted to providing its customers with an unmatched experience through excellent service, high quality products and knowledgeable staff.

“Our San Marcos location has been a success thanks to the support of many of our loyal customers from the San Antonio and southeast coastal regions,” explains Chris Hackerd, VP of Store Operations. “We are excited to finally open a store that is a little closer to home for them while also expanding our reach farther south, closer to the coastal cities.”

With stores currently operating in Austin, San Marcos, Spring and Houston, Texas, ACK is slated to officially open its doors in San Antonio in early November 2013. Similar to its sister stores, ACK San Antonio will also house the “Store-in-a-Store” concept with dedicated floor space for Rack Boys, providing a full assortment of vehicle racks, trailers and accessories and installation services.
