Cheyenne, WY (PRWEB) September 06, 2011
Sierra Trading Post announces the grand opening of its new retail location at 6139B South Virginia St. in Reno, Nev. The store grand opening is Sept. 10 & 11 with several door prizes up for grabs.
Sierra Trading Post, a brick & click e-tailer, acquired the new 31,500 sq. ft. store in July 2010. The move was prompted in part by the company’s expansion into sporting goods this year. The new space is 6,500 sq. ft. larger than the current Sierra Trading Post Reno store, and features higher ceilings and a more streamlined design. Other tenants of the up-and-coming shopping center on South Virginia Street include Whole Foods and Pier 1 Imports.
“We’ve spent the past year really focusing on how to make our new store as customer-friendly as possible,” says Mark Dobrowolski, director of Retail Operations for Sierra Trading Post. “With the added square footage and smart design, we’re going to be able to provide our customers with a very inviting way to shop their favorite brands. And, if they attend our grand opening, they’ll have a chance to win great prizes.”
In addition to experiencing the store for the first time, shoppers in the store Sept. 10 & 11 will have a chance to win one of several door prizes including an iPad2, one of four $500 product packages (Carhartt, men’s clothing, women’s clothing, footwear), and a Boker knife.
Whole Foods, an upscale health food and organic grocer, is excited about Sierra Trading Post’s relocation because they see a strong crossover in their customer base.
“The common thread between Sierra Trading Post and Whole Foods is our mutual commitment to our customers’ lifestyle,” says Matt Holmes, principal for Retail West of San Francisco, owners of the Whole Foods center. “In other words, birds of a feather flock together.”
In anticipation of the grand opening, Sierra Trading Post will close its current store next to the former Mervyn’s site in South Reno. The company has called that location home for 10 years.
Grand opening hours:
9 a.m. – 9 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 10
10 a.m. – 7 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 11
