PrimaLoft Selects Winner of Complimentary Trip to Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. Manager of The North Face Soho store selected to attend industry trade show.

Albany, NY – In appreciation of their retailer partners' support over the years, PrimaLoft recently hosted an appreciation reception for outdoor and home retailers. The event provided an opportunity for retailers to learn more about PrimaLoft products and preview new PrimaLoft® outerwear and luxury bedding that will appear in stores this fall. Retail attendees also had an opportunity to toss their name in a hat to win a free trip to the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market trade show in Salt Lake City.

David DePodwin, store manager of The North Face Soho store, was randomly selected as the winner of the trip and will be joining the PrimaLoft team as its guest at this summer's Outdoor Retailer (OR) trade show in July.

“I'm thrilled to have an opportunity to attend OR this summer,” said DePodwin. “I'm looking forward to reconnecting with coworkers and outdoor industry colleagues and I'm very grateful to PrimaLoft for this opportunity.”

“We realize the importance of providing our retailer partners with the necessary tools to help them sell technical products containing PrimaLoft,” said Eileen Berner, PrimaLoft Sales and Marketing Director. “Our retailer appreciation event provided another opportunity to educate our retail partners about PrimaLoft's technical properties, to ultimately ensure that consumers understand why PrimaLoft is the benchmark for ultimate warmth, performance and comfort.”
