It’s Not Just a Store – It’s A Destination
There is always something fun happening at Saluda Outfitters. A young business, having just opened April 2017 as a retail and gear outfitter, the outdoor adventure retailer has already expanded to include a full-service bicycle shop, food truck with in-house commercial kitchen and a tap room and grill with both indoor and outdoor seating, making it a destination not to be missed. Every Saturday and sometimes more often, you can enjoy live music from talented area musicians.
Since the spring of 2017, Saluda Outfitters has been a welcomed addition to the North Carolina mountain area and upstate South Carolina. Located in Polk County within walking distance of downtown Saluda, just one mile off I-26 at Exit 59, this upscale outdoor adventure store provides shoppers with an extensive array of top-quality performance apparel, outdoor camping, kayaking, biking, fishing and paddle boarding equipment and supplies.
Housed in a refurbished custom log cabin, a large stone indoor fireplace offers shoppers a warm and friendly atmosphere. Come and relax in a hand-crafted rocking chair on one of the large covered porches, or take a snack out back to one of the picnic tables. Get a craft beer or glass of wine from Green River Eddy’s Tap Room, a beautiful addition to the store just opened in May 2018, or relax on the expansive new deck finished just in time for last summer’s live music events. Also, you can enjoy some fresh cooked meals from The Big Hungry Food Truck permanently stationed outback of the store or select from the yummy appetizers and quick plates inside the tap room and grill.
The store’s ample retail space houses more than 80 popular brands that include Elan, Kuhl, ExOfficio, Gregory, Osprey, Howler Bros. and Black Diamond. There is also great footwear for your every adventure including Keen, Salomon, Astral Designs, Teva, Swiftwick, Fits Socks, Smartwool and so much more.
