Asheville, NC – March 24, 2015 – Grassroots Outdoor Alliance is excited to announce that Trail Creek Outfitters of Glen Mills, Philadelphia has joined our organization as a Retail Member.

Trail Creek Outfitters has been committed to offering exceptional customer service from knowledgeable, friendly staff for the past 32 years. They have identified the best outdoor clothing companies and stocked their shelves with products made by companies that are responsible, sustainable and use fair trade practices. In addition they give back to their community by offering grants to help get kids outside through summer camps, hosting the annual Trail Run Series featuring 4 races, and partners with United By Blue for the annual Brandywine River Clean Up.

Ed Camelli, one of the founders of Trail Creek Outfitters said, "We are thrilled to be included in such a prestigious group of retailers. It is only through cooperation that the specialty store can compete against the many forces that are challenging us. As the retail climate gets more competitive, we are looking forward to sharing best practices with this group."

Of the addition of Trail Creek Outfitters to Grassroots Outdoor Alliance’s Retail Members, Wes Allen, President of Grassroots, said, “Ed and his team at Trail Creek have defined specialty outdoor retail in the Philadelphia area for years. They run one of the industry’s most highly regarded shops. Our entire organization is thrilled and proud to now call Trail Creek Outfitters one of our own.”
