Sunderland, VT (PRWEB) November 01, 2016
The Orvis Company, Inc. is pleased to announce the opening of its new retail store in Richmond. Situated at 6235 Suite C at the River Road Shopping Center, this facility joins its sister location at Short Pump Town Center.
When asked about the new location, Orvis Director of Real Estate Jason Williams said, “Richmond has been a great market for us! The River Road location is right in the heart of the city, and we feel this will be more convenient for many of our core customers, as well as giving us an opportunity to connect with those who may not be as familiar with the brand.”
The 7,000 square foot store represents a brand new design template for Orvis. “We think this design will provide a more intimate shopping experience”, said Williams. “We’re trying out a more extensive use of wood and stone to create a deeper connection with the outdoors, which we know resonates with the Orvis customer.”
Orvis is proud to have a strong business presence in Virginia, home to its Southern headquarters and distribution center, which employs more than 300 people. In addition, the new River Road store joins seven other retail locations and an outlet, more than any other state.
The new store will open for business on Saturday, November 5th, with a Grand Opening to follow in spring 2017.
