First Store Begins Mountain Khakis’ Retail Expansion
DENVER - (March 21, 2017) – Mountain Khakis®, a leading mountain town-inspired lifestyle apparel brand, will host the grand opening of its first flagship retail store in Denver’s historic Larimer Square April 1, 2017, 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. The event establishes the brand’s permanent brick and mortar presence in Denver. The day’s festivities include a live bluegrass band, complimentary beverages and Mountain Khakis’ giveaways.
“The store represents a logical next step in the growth of our business and centers us squarely in the pulse of one of the capital cities of the outdoor industry.” said Ross Saldarini, president of Mountain Khakis. “Denver is the perfect big mountain town to plant the first MK retail flag. Not only is the city in the midst of a robust revitalization, its residents are the Mountain Khakis’ profile customer - people passionate about the outdoors with a serious appreciation of style and performance that work hard and play harder.”
"As the outdoor industry grows in the United States, the real innovators are companies that span the divide across multiple western states,” said Luis Benitez, director for Colorado’s Office of Outdoor Recreation Industry. “We are proud to welcome Mountain Khakis as a regional partner to deepen that intermountain west relationship with the Jackson Hole based company. The brand brings thoughtful innovation and a passion for conservation to our community.”
The 1,800 square foot Larimer Square store is managed by Mountain Khakis’ director of retail sales, Steve Carpenter, who brings 27 years of experience leading REI stores. Store offerings include apparel for men and women that easily transitions from tailgate to trailhead to tavern, as well as one-of-a-kind accessories like canvas bags fashioned with recycled climbing rope, handcrafted glass belt buckles and made-in-the- USA leather luggage. New product arrives in store every eight weeks.
