EDWARDS — Ptarmigan Sports recently earned a spot on Outdoor USA Magazine’s list of Top 100 outdoor specialty retailers in the United States. The Top 100 Retailers initiative recognizes the leading independent, outdoor specialty retail businesses for their outstanding work and entrepreneurial drive.
“The independent specialty retail channel is essential to building engaged outdoor and active lifestyle communities,” said Raimondo Forlin, publisher of Outdoor USA Magazine. “Specialty retailers also play a key role in fostering product innovation and brand authenticity because in this channel is where new products, new brands and technologies earn credibility with the consumer. We are happy to honor the stores that are setting the bar for success.”
This year’s Top 100 Retailers were chosen from nominations provided by leading industry brands and distributors. Stores were able to nominate themselves for consideration.
