This expansion will allow more space for enjoying the atmosphere of historic Saluda while shopping at the outdoor adventure retailer, enjoying a cold craft beer or glass of wine and in the spring, some great live music.

“After an enjoyable hiking, biking or river adventure, outdoor enthusiasts can drop by to shop for their favorite outdoor gear and apparel and relax awhile,” Andy Hendrix, new store operations manager, said. “We hope this addition and others soon to be announced will be complimentary pieces to the shopping experience.”

Hendrix added that the spring line of Elan clothing displayed in the ladies’ boutique has begun to arrive, and an array of spring outdoor and adventure apparel is on the way. Come by to check out the updated supply of NRS jackets and great discounts on winter clothing.
