The first RootsRated Kiosk was installed at Rock/Creek Outfitters in Chattanooga, TN in October 2014. “Our customers love it,” said store owner Dawson Wheeler. “During the first two weeks, there were over 700 unique visits to our in-store Kiosk app providing us with a very tangible way to step-up our customer service.”

Retailers attending the bi-annual Grassroots Outdoor Alliance summit in Knoxville, TN this week (November 9-13, 2014) can place priority orders for the RootsRated Kiosks. “The digital platform can be customized for individual retailers and locations,” said Fynn Glover, RootsRated founder and president.
