Grassroots Outdoor Alliance is excited to announce that J&H Lanmark has joined our organization as a Retail Member.

J&H Lanmark is a locally-owned specialty outdoor store. Founded in 1972 as an army surplus store, our name came from the two men who founded J&H, Danny Johnson and John Hall. The original store was located on North Broadway in downtown Lexington, Kentucky. As J&H’s loyal customer base grew and evolved, J&H began offering outdoor apparel, equipment and supplies. And even though we’ve changed a lot, J&H still offers the one thing that all customers appreciate, the best customer service in the business. Today, J&H Lanmark is Central Kentucky’s OUTDOOR HEADQUARTERS.

George Lathram, owner of J&H Lanmark, began working there when he was 16 and stayed there until he graduated from college. IN 2006, George purchased the business and is also licensed in property, casualty, life and health insurances, as well as investment securities. He recently received the “Young Entrepreneur Award” for 2012 by the Lexington Chamber of Commerce.

George shared his enthusiasm for joining Grassroots, “We are honored to be accepted into the Grassroots family of companies. We are looking forward to utilizing the many resources that Grassroots has to offer.”

With such short notice in joining Grassroots, J&H Lanmark will be unable to attend the Grassroots Early Summit being held from June 9 – 12, 2014 in Loveland, Colorado.

Grassroots Outdoor Alliance unites 49 independent outdoor retailers with over 100 doors in 28 states, as a strong voice to protect and promote the experience of outdoor enthusiasts across the United States.
