For those of you with quality used outdoor recreation gear and apparel collecting dust in your garages, you now have an alternative to Craigslist and e-Bay right here in Spokane. And if you’re looking for great deals on gently used outdoor gear, NW Outdoors, a new outdoor gear consignment shop opening in the old Wintersport building (3220 N Division), has you covered. NW Outdoors began taking a wide range of gear on consignment in March and their grand opening for the shopping public is set for Saturday, April 1. The new store offers hiking, camping and backpacking gear; technical outerwear; bikes and biking accessories; paddling, climbing, and ski gear and more. “We don’t just sell gear, we also live for the adventure. Enjoying the outdoors is a passion that drove me to transition my personal life into a career,” says owner Mark Schneider. The grand opening celebration starts at 10 a.m. on April 1 with snacks, local beer, and music to kick off the first opportunity to browse the shop’s selection of bargain gear. Normal business hours after April 1 will run from 10-6 Monday through Saturday and 11-5 on Sundays. Nwoutdoors.co.
