Celebrating a successful re-launch into the North American market, Garmont announces the winner of its Italian trip giveaway from Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. Chosen randomly from a shoe box filled with retailer business cards collected at their Outdoor Retailer booth, the Garmont team selected Mountain Chalet as the winner. In the next year, the owners will travel to Montebelluna, Italy to visit Garmont’s headquarters, experience the culture and climb with mountain guides.
Additionally, Garmont will award a second retailer a trip to Italy chosen from the upcoming Connect Show and Outdoor Retailer Winter Market. Retailers who visit the Garmont booth and try-on boots will enter to win a trip to Montebelluna.
“Our new ownership presents an opportunity to build Garmont as an important brand in North America,” said Bill Dodge, CEO of Garmont. “Our strategy is to create strong, mutually-beneficial relationships with specialty retailers. Our trip to Italy is one way that we are saying thank you to retailers who have partnered with and are supporting Garmont’s re-entry into this market.”
“We’re very excited to offer our customers new products from Garmont, a brand well-known for its quality and craftsmanship, and a company committed to supporting independent specialty retailers, the backbone of the outdoor industry,” said Jim Smith, co-owner of Mountain Chalet.
Continued Dodge, “We are thrilled to have selected Mountain Chalet as the winner. They will be long-term partner committed outfitting mountain enthusiasts with the gear they desire to support their outdoor experiences. We look forward to rewarding another retailer partner with our upcoming trip during the winter shows.”
