For those in the market for a new kayak or outdoor gear, this event is not to be missed. Exclusive grand opening discounts will be available to all those who attend and there will be plenty of chances to walk away with great door prizes. Plus, event goers should be sure to have their mobile device on hand and ready to take advantage of a limited time social check-in offer via Yelp, Facebook and Foursquare.

“We have been eyeing the San Antonio market for a long time and all those loyal customers that have been driving up to our San Marcos location now can get all their kayaking and outdoor gear much closer to home,” said Chris Hackerd, MSP Holdings VP of Store Operations, “This store will also expand our reach farther south as we get closer to the coast and into the region where there are a lot of outdoor activities.”

The 5,000 square-foot store will host an expansive selection of kayaks, stand up paddle boards, camping and other outdoor adventure gear along with associated services and events. It will also house the store-in-a-store concept RackBoys featuring a full line of car rack components and accessories.
