Press Release: Grand Opening!
On October 6th, from 4-7pm, Gear Hut will be celebrating its Grand Opening at their location, 1245 South Wells Avenue. The locally owned, outdoor recreation consignment shop will have raffles, games, and refreshments for all attendees.
If you consign or shop through Gear Hut, you have the opportunity to support several non-profits. The shop has teamed up with the Sierra Climbing Team, Great Basin Outdoors School, SPCA of Northern Nevada, the Sierra Club Great Basin Group and Friends of Nevada Wilderness. If you choose, you can consign your gear under one of these group’s accounts, donating a portion of sales to the selected organization. On October 6th, 10% of the day’s total sales will get split between the non-profits that attend the Grand Opening event.
Gear Hut’s goal is to make the outdoors more accessible to all of Reno, through low priced used gear. Owner Rusty Donlon says that the majority of customers who have been coming by the store “are thrilled to have an alternative to the typical retailers” or exclaim “about time!”.
Their regular store hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 11am - 7pm. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
