In the February 2009 issue of Outside Magazine, Grassroots Outdoor Alliance was selected as one of The 100 Best Adventure Websites by Outside’s Editors. Alongside other top retail sites, Grassroots Outdoor Alliance is noted for Outside’s readers being able to buy new gear and support local retailers while traveling or at home.
Dave Matz, President of Grassroots Outdoor Alliance said of the highlight, â€œit is great to see us mentioned in a consumer magazine alongside top national retailers. Consumers shop in a variety of ways, and we commend Outside for drawing a focus on local retail.â€
The February issue hit newsstands this month, right in the middle of the winter retail season and leading into the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market. Twice each year, outdoor retailers, gear manufacturers and adventure athletes descend upon Salt Lake City, UT to showcase the outdoor industry’s latest products and innovations. At this year’s Winter Market, Grassroots Outdoor Alliance Retail Members will bring over 100 gear buyers to the show. Grassroots Outdoor Alliance represents a cross section of Independent Outdoor Retailers from across 22 states and highlights the best in class of local outdoor retailers from around the country.
