It’s Not Just a Store – It’s A Destination

There is always something fun happening at Saluda Outfitters. A young business, having opened April 2017 as a retail and gear outfitter, the outdoor adventure retailer expanded to include a full-service bicycle shop and 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 or porch swing on one of the large covered porches. Choose from one of the 16 craft beers on tap or have a glass of wine from Green River Eddy’s Tap Room and Grill, a beautiful addition to the store just opened in May 2018. There is plenty of space to lounge comfortably on a warm summer day or cool fall evening on the expansive new deck where we feature our live outdoor music events. Also, you can enjoy some fresh cooked meals from our grill or select from the yummy appetizers and quick plates inside the tap room.

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, Olukai, Chaco, Astral Designs, Swiftwick, Fits Socks, Smartwool and so much more.

For those adventure seekers, Saluda Outfitters carries a volume of gear for all your outdoor activities from camping to outings on the nearby Green River. The outfitter stocks Sweets Protection high performance helmets, Stohlquist PFDs, Therm-a-rest, Eno and NRS gear to help ensure your comfort and safety.

A cool selection of T-shirts, hoodies and hats line the walls and shelves with a little something for all sizes and tastes. Saluda Outfitters and Green River Eddy’s offer tees (adult and children’s) and hoodies featuring company logos, along with a large selection of stickers.
